LEGENDARY EPHESUS & HOUSE OF VIRGIN MARY TOURS:

15 October 2024 / 16 October 2024 / 21 October 2024 (3 Departures)

 

09:00 departure from your hotel for the visit of the site of the grandiose Ephesus, a UNESCO World Heritage site, one of the most beautiful cities and rich in the history of the ancient world. The city was home to the Artemision, dedicated to the worship of Artemis, received Saint Paul, and Saint John, two councils of nascent Catholicism. You will stroll along Marble Street to see the Agora, the Odeon, the Nymphaeum of Trajan, and the Temple of Hadrian; you will walk past the Roman villas and continue to the Celsius Library and the theatre where St Paul preached.

After the discovery of the Ephesus, at lunch, we will taste typical Turkish local meals at the unique open-air locomotive museum of Turkey, located next to Ephesus.
After, you will also visit the House of the Virgin Mary which has been designated by the Vatican as a place of pilgrimage and which is located in a remote setting in the heights of Ephesus. We visit Ephesus Museum artifacts as the museum exhibits mostly the finds of the ancient city, instead of a chronological and typological presentation, the relics are grouped according to where they were excavated. Among the most famous sculptures are the two big Artemises, The Head of Eros, Eros with Dolphin, and the Head of Socrates.
Back to Izmir at the end of the day around 18:00.
