Ephesus is the best-preserved classical city on the Mediterranean, and perhaps the best place in the world to get a feeling of what life was like in Roman times. Walk along its remarkably well-preserved marble streets, flanked by columns, temples, and fountains.

See fascinating ancient structures such as the Temple of Hadrian, the stunning facade of the Library of Celsius, and the Great Theater. Your expert guide will provide you with information about the many remarkable sites you encounter throughout the day.

The House of the Virgin Mary lies just beyond Ephesus. According to Christian tradition, Mary was brought here by the Apostle John after the Resurrection of Christ and lived her final days in this house. A small shrine dedicated to St. Mary was found when the ruins of the house were first discovered. The Vatican has since recognized the site as the final resting place of the Virgin.

Visit Isa Bey Mosque from 14th century by the first Muslim family that settled in West Anatolia. You will have a great information about architecture of early Islam period.

We will continue with St. John Basilica where apostle John died and buried after he completed his missions in Anatolia. Then visit Temple of Artemis (Diana) which was one of the seven wonders of ancient World.

After tour your driver will drop you off back to the cruise port. Our service ends here, we hope to have you as our guest again in Istanbul which will be your next stop in the cruise.
