Wonders of Ephesus Tour from Izmir,Hotels and Port

You will start your day with a pleasant drive through the countryside to visit the ruins of the city of Ephesus, which dates predominantly from the later Roman period.

The stunning ruins here include the towering façade of the Celsus Library and Hadrian's Temple, as well as the Sacred Way, which was one of the main thoroughfares used by the Ancient Romans.

Visit the Terrace Houses located opposite Hadrian's Temple, a newly excavated section. The wealthy and important people of Ephesus used these houses, which are finely decorated with mosaics and frescoes giving a true impression of the ancient lifestyle. Those on the upper slopes are reached via steps and situated on the slopes of Bulbul Mountain with the roof of one house forming the terrace of the one above it. Continuing from the library to the end of the marble street, you can look up at Ephesus' impressive amphitheater, where St Paul preached to the Ephesians.

As you leave the ancient city, cold refreshing towels will be provided
From Ephesus, you will drive towards town of Seljuk. Here you will visit the ruins of the Basilica of St John.
The Basilica had a cruciform plan with four domes along its longitudinal axis and a pair flanking the central dome to form the arm of the cross. The tomb of St John was placed under the central dome. Next, visit Mt Pagusa setting that is a shrine to some and a curiosity to others. It is reputedly the home of Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ.

Archaeological evidence shows that the little house here dates from the 6th century AD but that its foundations are from the 1st century AD. This ties in with the commonly held belief that Mary moved to Turkey.
