During the full day Ephesus tour our first stop will be the Ephesus ancient city. The Ephesus visit together with your local Ephesus guide will be a walking tour taking you throughout one of the most surprising excavations in the world. You will see the Odeon, The Fountain of Trajan, Terrace houses (from outside), the baths of Scholastika, the temple of Hadrian and magnificent Celsius library . The library is adorned with columns and statues. The Grand Theater, where Saint Paul preached, is a huge theater with a capacity of 24,000 seats. You will return to the bus through the Arcadian Way, where Mark Anthony and Cleopatra once rode in procession. The visit of Ephesus city will take nearly 2 hours.

The next stop will be the Basilica dedicated to the author of Revelation St. John. According to the legend St. John died in this church after having written the Fourth Gospel and the Basilica was built by the Emperor Justinian over St. Johns burial place.

At the end of the tour we offer to you a lunch and then we drive you back to Kusadasi Harbour/hotel or Izmir port/airport/hotel.

What you visit
It is believed, that the Apostle John brought Virgin Mary over here after the crucifixion of Jesus. On a hill slope, outside the town of Ephesus he built her a simple stone house where she stayed secretly from the Romans. Apostle John is the author of the Fourth Gospel and the Book of Revelation. He began to follow Jesus together with his brother James and later he became one of the closest Jesus disciples. It is said that St. John was with Jesus during the most significant events such as Transfiguration and Crucifixion, when Jesus told to Mary: “Mother, this is your Son” and to John: “this is your Mother”. The Seven Sleepers were seven Christians who had to hide in a cave around 250 AD during the Roman emperor Decius to escape persecution of Christians. There’s also another version of the story which says that they were imprisoned to death by Decius as a punishment for being Christian.

Did you know that fact about Ephesus?
But did you know about the place outside of Ephesus called garbage heap (trash heap)? According to the historical records unwanted babies - mostly girls - due to the belief to the Artemis goddess (Artemis was the goddess of fertility both giving blessings to woman willing to have a child and also protecting from the child birth, as every third woman was likely to die during the child birth) were left in the isolated area to die. The most healthiest of them were picked up by the slave traders and used to be slaves or prostitutes.
