Day 1

Your guide will meet in your hotel or anywhere else in Kusadasi or Izmir port/airport/hotel.
A quick drive will lead you to the Temple of Artemis which is one of the seven wonders of the world.
And then, we will drive 10 minutes to Ephesus. We are usually in Ephesus for 2 hours. The pinnacle of the trip is the ancient city of Ephesus, Turkey’s largest open-air museum, and the Eastern Mediterranean’s best-preserved classical city. His streets were once walked by Cleopatra, Mark Antony, the Virgin Mary and John the Apostle. Your Ephesus guide walks through the town as you walk through the area.
We will have lunch at one of the local restaurants after we end the Ephesus sightseeing tour. So, you can learn and have different experiences about the Turkish culture and cuisine.
Next destination is the House of the Virgin Mary (we usually spend 45-60 minutes there; you can also have some additional free time to pray). Mary was taken to Ephesus by the Apostle John during the Resurrection of Christ, according to Christian tradition, and remained there for her final days. On the base of that building, this church was erected, and its validity was confirmed by Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II.
We can then visit other locations in the area: Terrace Houses (living space of rich people in Roman period) and Basilica of St. John (It stands over the believed burial site of John the Apostle). Finally, we will drop you to your hotel or airport in Kusadasi/Izmir.
