Ephesus (Turkish Efes) was an ancient Greek city on the west coast of Anatolia, near present-day Selçuk, Izmir Province, Turkey. It was one of the twelve cities of the Ionian League during the Classical Greek era. In the Roman period, it was for many years the second largest city of the Roman Empire; ranking behind Rome, the empire's capital. Ephesus had a population of more than 250, 000 in the 1st century BC, which also made it the second largest city in the world.

The city was famed for the Temple of Artemis (completed around 550 BCE), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The temple was destroyed in 401 CE by a mob led by St. John Chrysostom. Emperor Constantine I rebuilt much of the city and erected new public baths. The town was again partially destroyed by an earthquake in 614.

Come and discover this remarkable ancient city with me.

Itinerary

A private guide services, at first glance, are more expensive than following a group. But in fact one such tour by its semantic and emotional content is worth of two or three group tours. And if you hire a professional friendly guide, you can seriously save money!

A Recent Review of this tour

This tour was great value even for two people! Nazim was knowledgeable about the historic sites and answered all our questions. The day was well planned out with punctual arrival, a spotless vehicle with a good driver, a flexible pace focused on the sites we were interested in and a great typical Turkish lunch. We enjoyed our tour of House of Virgin Mary, Ancient City of Ephesus, Ephesus Terrace Houses, and Temple of Artemis with Nazim and learned a lot in a short period of time.
