Overview

Ephesus is the best-preserved classical city of the Eastern Mediterranean, and among the most wonderful places in the world for one to genuinely "soak in" the atmosphere of Roman times. Scattered over hills close to Turkey’s west coast, this 2,000-year-old Roman city is a living, breathing outdoor museum.

You will travel there in a fully air-conditioned bus, accompanied by your professional tour guides. Once there, you will walk along the well planned streets, and marvel at the first temple dedicated to a Roman Emperor, the ancient Iatrina. You will also visit one of the best-preserved ancient sites in the world called Ephesus.

You will then see the footprints carved into stone that lead to an ancient brothel. You will later visit the House of the Virgin Mary, the Temple of Artemis (one of the seven wonders of the ancient world), and the 1,000-year-old amphitheater which has recently hosted stars such as Tom Jones, Diana Ross and Sting.

The earliest human settlements in Turkey date back to 9th century BC. Recent excavations have revealed over 300 ancient cities on the Aegean coast alone! The biggest and the most interesting one of the time is the ancient city of Ephesus, a place just 3 Km from the modern day Selcuk in Izmir Province. The city was founded by Greek colonists in the 10th century BC. Ephesus became famous by its grand building, the Temple of Artemis. This grand temple with over 127 huge and high columns supporting an immense temple roof was regarded as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. During the Roman Period, Ephesus had grown as a massive province city with a population of over 250,000. With the recent excavations, Ephesus has become one of the largest open air museums in Turkey and a major tourist attraction. This huge archaeological site attracts close to 2 million people annually. The city has captivating sites such as The Ancient Artemis Temple, the Temple of Hadrian, the Library of Celsus, and the remains of an impressively large amphitheatre, which used to host 24,000 people at a time.

In fact, Ephesus has a good connection with Christianity as well. St Paul, a disciple of Christ, stayed in the city for nearly three consecutive years (53 to 57 AD). He congregated and organized missionary activities into the hinterlands. The Corinthians were written during his stay here. It is also believed that Virgin Mary accompanied St John to stay on top of the Bulbul Mountain, the place popularly known as the House of Virgin Mary until her Assumption. The site is rightfully declared as a holy pilgrimage by the Supreme Church of Vatican. John, one of the chief apostles also has an Ephesus connection. It is said ‘the Gospel of John’ was written by him in Ephesus around 90-100 AD. Join our Marmaris Ephesus Tour to explore the ancient city of Ephesus from Marmaris.
