Ephesus Tour From Pamukkale

1. Day: Ephesus Tour From Pamukkale

Ephesus is the best-preserved Roman city in the Mediterranean region, and one of Turkey's top sights. If you want to visit a place where you can really get a feel for what life was like 2000 years ago during the glory-days of Greece and Rome, Ephesus is the place. In terms of ruins, it's better than Rome itself.

We operate tours from different cities across Turkey to Ephesus including Istanbul, Izmir, Kuşadası, Selcuk and Pamukkale.

Besides the grandeur of this Roman heritage, you will visit the House of Virgin Mary where she is said to have spent the last years of her life.

You will also see one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World: the Temple of Artemis.

Your Ephesus tour from Pamukkale commences with a visit to the magnificent ruins of Ephesus, an ancient Greek city, and later, a major Roman city near present day Selcuk. It was also one of the Seven Churches of Asia, cited in the Book of Revelation. Today it is the most visited ruins site in Turkey, and the best-preserved site in the Mediterranean. Excavations of Ephesus began in the 19th Century, and some of the buildings you will see today include gymnasiums, agoras, the Domitian Square, the Hadrian Temple, the Roman Bath, the Celsus Library and the biggest theatre in Anatolia with a seating capacity of 25,000. As you wander through these well-preserved ruins you will feel as if you have been transported back in time.

Next stop is a visit to the House of the Virgin Mary, which is believed to be the place she was taken to by St John to spend her last days. After lunch we visit the Temple of Artemis which is one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World. Here you will learn about why Artemis was so revered by the Ephesians and although just one column remains of the temple you will be able to imagine it in its former glory.

  1. Please note that depending on the timing of the tour for the day, you may have a chance to grab something for breakfast on the run when you arrive in Selcuk, or you may not. For this reason it is a good idea to have some snacks handy just in case.
