Visit:Ephesus Ancient City+Terrace Houses(Optional)+House of Mother Mary+Temple of Artemis+St John Church with a Private Guide
İf you ask me if it is worth it to visit the ancient city of Ephesus?
Ephesus ancient city was the most important commercial center of the western Anatolia in antiquity. After the Pompei in Italy, Ephesus was the second largest open air museum in the world. It was the first ancient city built entirely of marble. The city has one of the biggest theater in Anatolia, the third biggest library and second largest agora in the world. Also St. Paul lived in there so one of the seven churches of Revelation was in Ephesus.
And also you have a chance to visit;
*House of Virgin Mary which was the shrine in where the mary had spent her last days
*The Temple of Artemis which was the one of the seven wonders of ancient time.
*The Basilica of St. John the Evangelist
All of the this reasons, I think that the ancient city of Ephesus is the most beautiful ancient city in the world.

I am meeting with you at the exit of Kusadasi Port terminal then Driver is taking us to Selçuk town which is just 20 km away from Kuşadası around 20 minutes. After that I prefer to go firstly House of Mother Mary because timing is very important for cruise passangers and the best itinerary is that way. Then just 10 minutes later we will arrive at the upper gate of Ephesus ancient city which can take approximately 1 and half hour or 2 hours max with visiting to terrace houses museum can take approximately 30 minutes). .
Because of the Sun, early morning time is the best time to make Ephesus tour(Walk through history along marble streets lined with extensive ruins from state buildings to public buldings, all highlights, Library, Theather etc. ! At the end of the Ephesus tour we are meeting with driver at the lower gate then we can talk about our next spots and decide to go where you wish ;) Do not worry about the timing , we do not have any traffic problem in here.
