Know More about this tour

Today you can visit the amazing historical sites in Selcuk area. Some of the best ruins in the world still are standing at The Ancient City of Ephesus. This large marble city used to be the Capital of the Roman Empire for the east and was said to have a population of up to 200,00 people. The ruins that date back to over 3000 years ago are some of the best preserved ruins of today's modern world. You will be taken through the ruins to visit some of the major sites within such as the Odeon, the Celsius Library and Temple of Hadrian.

One of the seven wonders of the ancient world lies right at your feet in the swampy lands of Selcuk. The Temple Of Artemis foundations are still standing for you to marvel at. You can still imagine the beauty and majesty of this temple with what is standing today. The intrinsic sculptured columns capitals and shafts that are still standing, along with the history provided will give you a real impression of how this temple once was.

Sitting high upon the top of the BulBul Mountain that overlooks Selcuk is the House Of Virgin Mary. This is now quite the pilgrimage site as it is said to be the last place that Mary spent before her ascension. You will have your time to pay respects and on the way up and down enjoy the views that this location offers you over the below lying town of Selcuk and its surrounding area.

If you are into architecture then the Isabey Mosque will be right up your alley. It is a wonderful example of the Seljukian architecture of its time. There is an inscription to God above the doorway and the beautifully ornate carvings and tiles will not leave you disappointed.

    The pick up at hotel was on time. Had a pleasant day tour. The guide excellent with a wide knowledge of Ephesus history. A must to do tour highly recommended.

    It was only 5 people in this tour. The guide was very friendly, and knowledgeable about the sites. I wished to go to Ephesus museum instead of leather shop or carpet shop in the tour, though.
