Ephesus + Temple of Artemis + Archelogy Museum


TOUR 2 Ephesus + Temple of Artemis + Archelogy Museum



From Izmir or Kusadasi

Your private guide will meet you at İzmir or Kusadasi port with a sign written “ Your Name “ on it, anytime you want. After picking you up at your cruise  Port of Smyrna or Kusadasi, during a course of about an hour and a half to  Ephesus, the guide, entitled by the Turkish Ministry of Tourism, will give you an introduction to the  ancient history of Ephesus, one of the most famous city of Hellenistic times, highlighting the importance of  one of the most transcendental archaeological sites in Turkey and the ancient world.

Ephesus: Throughout our visit we will enjoy the imperishable riches of Ephesus, Asia Minor former capital and one of the main ports of the Mediterranean Sea. We will marvel at the  Temple of Hadrian and we will be ecstatic at the magnificent  Library of Celsus. During this excursion you can keep a valuable memory of your visit by taking pictures of you in the stands of the largest  Theatre of the Antiquity, reviving the classical era in which more than 25 000 spectators attended its presentations.

House of Virgin Mary: Our tour continues in one of the Christianity most revered places: the site where the  Virgin Mary lived her last days in retirement and prayer. Located in the  mountains of Bulbul, a gift from nature, the humble home was forgotten until a date as recently as 1892, when it was declared a place of pilgrimage after some Marian apparitions. Currently a small stone church stands on the foundation of the home of the Virgin, known for the contemplative visits of Popes  Paul VI and  John Paul II. Before returning to the cruise, we propose you a stop to buy  souvenirs and typical products.

The Ephesus Museum; The first works of art found in the excavations of 1867-1905 were transferred to the  British Museum and then taken to  Vienna, currently exhibiting. Once founded the  Turkish Republic it banned foreign ownership of the antiquities of the country and founded a  museum in Selçuk to hold and display the findings of  Ephesus.

The  Ephesus Museum is different from other traditional museums. Their showrooms are designed not chronologically, as is usual, but rather thematically. Its rooms have names like  The House of Findings, the living  Fountain Relics, the  Hall of funerary relics, the  hall of Artemis,  Section of gladiators, etc.

We recommend you to wear  comfortable shoes and an appropriate clothing for such a pilgrimage, sacred place, as the  House of the Virgin.
