What you can expect

As the home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Ephesus is one of mankind’s crown jewels. Leave modern Istanbul behind, and head back through history on this day trip to the ancient city. See ruins and remnants, and hear stories of this formerly bustling metropolis.

Your tour starts with an early morning flight to Izmir province and a stop at the House of Mother Mary. Located at the top of Bulbul Mountain, the Christian and Muslim shrine of the Virgin Mary enjoys solitude amid the verdant greenery.

Upon arrival at Ephesus, dive straight into discovering the ancient Greek city. Stroll along the pathways and meander through the ruins of this iconic city as your guide leads the way. Be sure to visit the granite pillars of the Odeon theater, the 2nd-century Hadrian Temple, the 24,000 seats of the Great Theater, and—of course—the remains of the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Today, the site of the temple is marked by a single column constructed of dissociated fragments discovered on the site.

As you walk along the ancient Ephesian streets, take note of how your surroundings hint at the wealthy urban lifestyle that existed at the height of both the Greek and Roman civilizations. After lunch, your day of ancient sightseeing comes to a close with a trip to the Basilica of St. John, where you get to see the remaining marble pillars that once formed this great church.
