Ephesus

Explore Ephesus, the Roman city in the hills above the Aegean coast. One of the world’s best-preserved archaeological sites, visiting it is like stepping into a 2,000 year-old time warp. Your guide will showcase its highlights, telling you more about their past. Admire the Celsus Library, which was built with double walls to protect its scrolls from the heat. Peek into houses still decorated with frescoes. And nose around the public baths, brothel and shops. You’ll also walk down Marble Street towards the Great Theatre. Dug into a hillside, this 24,000-seater showcase once rang with the cries of gladiators and sermons of St. Paul. Afterwards, you’ll stop for lunch before continuing to the nearby Isa Bey Mosque – a fine example of 13th century Turkish architecture built using stones from Ephesus. Close by is the Temple of Artemis, once classed as one of the Wonders of the Ancient World. Only one column remains of this colossal monument, constructed in the 6th century BC. Lastly, you’ll call in at a ceramics factory – the final stop in an action-packed day
