Itinerary

This is a private tour designed only for you and your loved ones.

Our tour starts with us picking you up from your accommodation on determined time and transferring you to Ephesus in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Ephesus is one of the best preserved classic cities in the eastern Mediterranean and the largest open air museum in Turkey. With more than 30 buildings and structures linked together by streets that still have the marks of ancient chariot wheels, Ephesus is a place where you will feel as you are walking side by side with the residents of the area lived here centuries ago.

We will visit the Great Theatre, where St. Paul preached against the pagans and the gladiator fights took place. You can enjoy your Spartacus moments here. Originally with 25,000 people capacity, this theater was built in the Hellenistic period and was renovated by several Roman emperors. Designed for theatrical performances, later alterations allowed gladiatorial contests to be held here. The face of the Library of Celsus, which has been remarkably restored, is probably the most photographed place in Ephesus originally built between 115 to 125. We will also have chance to see the Odeon Temple, Fountain of Trajan, Temple of Hadrian, the steam Scholastica Baths, marble road, agora and the Temple of Domitian.

After visiting ancient Ephesus, our journey continues to see the Temple of Artemis. Known as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Temple of Artemis was dedicated to the Goddess of the Hunt that is one of the most important figures in mythology. Sadly, only the foundation and one column of this temple which once measured 425 feet by 220 feet wide survived to this date. Under St. Paul’s successful ministry, the city reached lived its golden era and became a good model to the ancient world in culture and art.

At the end of our tour, we take you back to your hotel in order for you get some rest after a fulfilling, inspiring adventure.
