Ephesus & House of Mary with a Private Guide
As your vehicle makes its way along the Aegean Coast, you will pass some of the regions fertile lands. As you reach the silted valley, time seems to come to a halt and then reverse. After a steep drive up Mt. Pagus, you will arrive at a stone chapel. This converted house probably dates from the 1st century and was envisioned by a German nun as the site where the Virgin Mary spent her last days. Continuing to Ephesus, leave your coach at the parking area and proceed on foot through Magnesia Gate. As you stroll along the old marble streets, you will pass the Odeon and Upper Agora. You will also see the ornate Hadrian Temple, the remains of some Byzantine houses, the beautifully restored facade of the Celsus Library, the Thermal Baths of Scholastica, the Commercial Agora and the theatre, which accommodates 25, 000 spectators and is still used for. . . .

Denizhan was an excellent tour guide in Ephesus. He was very knowlegable and explained everything to us. He was also very caring as one of our party was not very good at walking so he did the tour at our pace which was very enjoyable. We also had a lovely driver who also was pleasant and helpful. The whole tour was comfortable and enjoyable. Thankyou
