You'll be collected from your Kusadasi hotel or cruise ship at 8:30am or a little before your local supplier will confirm exact timings on booking for the 25-minute journey to ancient Ephesus.
During the Roman Empire, this Greek port became the greatest city in Asia Minor, and the wealth of marble still on the site pays testament to that.
Test the acoustics in the vast Great Theater, built by the ancient Greeks and then rebuilt during the Roman era. Marvel at the grand remains of the Library of Celsus, still standing after all these centuries. See the elaborate baths where Roman citizens would have socialized as they cleansed, the forum where they went about their daily business, and the Temple of Hadrian, devoted to the Roman emperor.
You'll have around three hours on site before your guide leads you back along the Arcadian Way, once the main street of a bustling city, to your air-conditioned minivan. You'll be back at your hotel or port around 12:30pm.
