Ephesus Mother Marry House Terrace Houses Port tours Shore excursiones
I will meet you at Kusadasi Port or in a Hotel you are staying in; after short drive we will visit the House of Mother Mary. According to Christian tradition, Mary was brought to Ephesus by the Apostle John after the Resurrection of Christ and lived her final days here. This church was erected on the foundation of that house, and its authenticity has been confirmed by Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II.
Then we will have 10 minutes driving to the ancient city of Ephesus, the largest open-air museum in Turkey, the best preserved classical city in the Eastern Mediterranean. Cleopatra, Mark Anthony, Virgin Mary and John the Apostle once walked its streets. I will explain you about life in ancient Rome as you walk through this spectacular city. Depending on your time and interest we can also visit other sites around Ephesus such as Temple of Artemis, Ephesus indoor Museum or St John Basilica.
