We will meet and greet you in the port where you'll be stopping by on your cruise. We will take you to the top attractions in Ephesus within your limited waiting time.

Your voyage will begin at Ephesus, where you will discover some of the most well-preserved remains of the ancient times. There's also the Celsus Library, which was built as an homage to Asia's proconsul, Gaius Julius Celsus Polemanus. St Paul preached to an audience of up to 24,000 people at the Grand Theatre. You'll also have the opportunity to witness exquisite Terrace Houses that were recently unearthed, and be surprised by the chambers that are still intact, the paintings on the walls, and the magnificent colorful tiled flooring.

The tour has a lot more to offer. Moving to the countryside, we will pay a visit to the House of the Virgin Mary, a holy site to see while in Ephesus. Your knowledgeable guide will entertain you with amazing anecdotes.

It is now time to explore the lands where the Temple of Artemis used to stand. The Temple, one of the world's seven wonders, is no longer standing, but its history – and the relics left behind – has a lot to say about the ancient history.

During the tour, we have one more stop. A visit to Sirince, a charming highland village, will brighten your day. It is a tranquil stop on the tour where you can unwind among the fruit orchards, chapels, and meandering roads. A lovely setting for a leisurely lunch and a glass of excellent local wine.

There will also be time to explore the surroundings. Sirince's architecture is a unique blend of Greek and Turkish influences. As a result, you will be treated to some spectacular views.

It is time to return to the port and board your cruise ship.
