Visit one of Turkey’s main highlights, Ephesus. This ancient Greco-Roman coastal town, located near the city of Izmir, was one of the 12 cities of the Ionian League, an ancient Greek district on the western coast of Asia Minor. As a port city, it was a major departure point for trade routes into Asia Minor.

Your guide will meet you in the morning at your hotel in Kusadasi or Selçuk and transfer you to Ephesus.
Walk through history, marveling at the marble streets, which are lined with public buildings. Among them are the Baths of Scholastica and the Library of Celsus; the latter was built in the beginning of the 2nd century AD by Gaius Julius Aquila as a memorial to his father, Tiberius Julius Celsus Polemaenus, the governor of Roman Asia.
We also tour the Temple of Hadrian and the Grand Theatre, two of the most impressive structures in this ancient city. The Grand Theatre was built in the 3rd century BC and was later expanded by the Romans in the 1st century AD to accommodate nearly 25,000 spectators. It was at this theatre that Saint Paul preached.
Afterwards, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
