Private Ephesus tour for cruise passengers


Ephesus used to be one of the most important Roman cities; nowday its ruins are among the most visited ancient sites in the world and one of the highlight attractions in Turkey. Once home to 250 000 people, important trade and pilgrimage center, today it is visited by 2 million tourists each year. We usually spend about 2 hours in Ephesus, and the highlights of the site are: Terrace Houses (houses of rich Ephesians), Library of Celsus (the 3rd largest library in the ancient world), Grand Theater (mentioned in Bible, place where Apostle Paul preached), Temple of Hadrian, Trajan fountain. . . After you visit Ephesus, depending on your interests and available time, you can visit other sites in the area: Ephesus indoor Museum, Virgin Mary's House, Temple of Artemis, Basilica of St. John. . . We usually spend 30-45 minutes in each additional site.
