See the Odeon, The Fountain of Trajan, the stream baths of Scholastic, the Temple of Hadrian, and the impressive library of Ephesus, adorned with stately columns and statues. Marvel at the Grand Theatre, with capacity of 24,000 seats. Return through the Arcadian Way, where Mark Anthony and Cleopatra once rode in procession. Take a flexible 1-hour lunch break.

Continue to your next stop, the Temple of Artemis, built in honor of the Greek Goddess of hunting, wild nature, and fertility. Your guide will offer historical context about the tension between the Romans and Christians that arose in the area over the centuries. Its significance earned its distinction as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Next, drive to Sirince, formerly a Greek Village and famous for its wine houses, olive oils, organic vegetables, and fruits.
