Visiting: Ephesus, House of Virgin Mary

Duration: 5 hours

As you walk out of Izmir Harbour, please look for your guide who will be holding a name placard and will be taking you to visit some of the amazing historical sights found around Selcuk

Our first stop is the Ancient City of Ephesus which dates back to the 10th Century BC and was once one of the largest Roman cities of its time. Your guide will escort you around its well-preserved ruins, including the large theater that once held up to 25,000 people, the Odeon, Hadrian's Temple, and the most photographed building – the Celsius Library. It was completed back in 120 AD and once housed up to 12,000 scrolls.

House of the Virgin Mary
Located a short drive from Ephesus stands the House of the Virgin Mary. Now an important pilgrimage site, it is said to be where Mary lived out the last days of her life and boasts impressive views across Selcuk's surrounding area.

Do not miss a chance to visit the Terrace Houses section which is located inside the Ancient City of Ephesus and has an extra entrance fee of 15 USD per person. Its oldest building, "The houses of the rich Romans", dates back to the 1st century BC and exhibits beautiful mosaics and frescoes on its walls, as well as the famous clay pipe water and heating systems. Please be aware that in this section there are over 100 stairs so we do not recommend it for people with physical disabilities. It takes a minimum of 30 minutes to visit.


Lunch is not included in the cost of the tour. We will suggest options for local Turkish restaurants and provide ample time for you to have a sit-down lunch.
