Full day Ephesus tour will start with a pickup from your local hotel followed by a short drive to the ancient city of Ephesus. It is a UNESCO heritage site and the biggest Hellenistic city in the world. Excavations started in 1869 to unearth one of the Seven Wonders of the world and still continue today. With a world famous library, terrace houses and the amphitheater - your visit to Ephesus will take you back to the ages of Alexander the Great, as you stroll along the marble streets of this magnificent ancient city. Our next stop is The House of The Virgin Mary. The mother of Jesus is believed to have spent the last days of her life until her Assumption (according to Catholic doctrine) or Dormition (according to Orthodox belief). The shrine has merited papal Apostolic Blessings and visits from several popes, the earliest pilgrimage coming from Pope Leo XIII in 1896, and the most recent in 2006 by Pope Benedict XVI. After lunch in Selcuk town, you will continue to the Selcuk Museum to see the artefacts found during the excavations of Ephesus. A walk to the Mosque of Isa Bey and the Cathedral of Saint John will be followed by a free time in the old Greek village of Sirince to rest and enjoy the different architecture of this cute little village. Our guide and driver will drop you to your hotel then.
