What to Expect
You will meet with your tour guide and start your lovely day.


A 30-minute drive will bring you to the House of the Virgin Mary, where she is said to have lived the last years of her life. This hallowed site, which has been officially declared a Roman Catholic shrine, has hosted three Papal visits since 1967.  

Then you will take a 10-minute drive to Ephesus, where you will see with the

Odeon Theatre, the

Celsus Library and

Hadrian Temple.

This impressive Corinthian-style temple was dedicated in A.D. 118 and reconstructed in the 4th century.

You will see the Great Theatre, dating back to the Hellenistic period. It was at this monumental site that St. Paul preached. As its acoustics remain excellent, this theatre is still in use today.

The Marble Road which runs between the Theater and the Celsus Library is part of a sacred walkway. On your return, you will sip apple tea as a myriad of colors unfold before your eyes during a carpet-making demonstration.  Or, you may remain in Kusadasi to shop or explore the town independently.  

Please note: Although there are no uphill surfaces, this excursion does involve extensive walking. Comfortable walking shoes with non-slip soles are therefore recommended.
