We invite you to have unforgettable Ephesus tour with us. Greek Theater, The Marble Road, the Celsus Library, and the Temple of Diana are just a few of the things that we will be seeing here.
Upon arrival in Istanbul, you will be met by a driver, who will then take you to the 5-star hotel to check-in. You will have the rest of the day to rest and, in the evening, there will be a welcome dinner at a local Turkish restaurant.
Unforgettable Ephesus Tour
We will fly from Istanbul to Izmir (please note that because this flight does not depart daily, the Izmir dates may be subject to change), which is the third largest city in Turkey and a major shipping port. Arriving in Izmir, the guide will pick us up and drive us to the 5-star hotel in Kusadasi to check-in. This hotel features a beautiful view of the Aegean Sea. The rest of the day will be free to enjoy the many amenities the hotel has to offer. Dinner will be at the hotel.
The next day we will drive to the incredible city of Ephesus and its colossal Greek Theater, which is still used for performances today. The Marble Road, the Celsus Library, and the Temple of Diana are just a few of the things that we will be seeing here. We will also visit the house where the Virgin Mary lived her final days. After the crucifixion of Jesus, St. John brought her to Ephesus.
OPTIONAL – If you have already visited Ephesus, a day trip to Pamukkale can be taken instead, but please note that this may slightly change the itinerary.
