Location

Ephesus

After meeting up your Guide at the Port of Izmir, drive southward to Selcuk Town. Pass the cotton fields, vineyards and pine woods, while driving along the blue Aegean shores.


Arrival to Ephesus Ancient City – Enter through the Magnesia Gate and begin a slow, downhill walk with your guide into the ruins of this Roman provincial capital. Your route takes you past the Odeon, the Celsus Library, the Temple of Hadrian, the Fountain of Trajan and the Great Theater. The theater had seating for 24,000, which was the site where it is believed St. Paul preached to the Ephesians and is used today for a local spring festival.


Basilica of St. John – Built by the Emperor Justinian over the tomb of St. John the Apostle, the Basilica, now in ruins, once rivaled St. Sophia in size. See the remaining graceful columns and mosaics of the Basilica as you take in the panorama of the rural Selcuk countryside and the ruins of the Temple of Artemis.


*** Please remember:

– Comfortable walking shoes and clothing, a hat, sunscreen are recommended.
