Ancient EphesusKusadasi has grown from a small sleepy fishing village into a sprawling tourist center, serving the thousands of tourists who flock to the area to visit the nearby ruins of Ephesus. These ancient ruins are considered the most important in Turkey.
Leaving the colorful town of Kusadasi behind, you will pass through the verdant countryside before arriving at Ephesus. Once you enter the Open Air Archeological Museum of Ephesus and pass by the Magnesia gate, you will enter the administrative section of ancient Ephesus. The guided walking tour will take you through one of the most magnificent excavations in the world. See the Odeon, the Fountain of Trajan, the steam baths of Scholastika, temple of Hadrian and the impressive library of Celsius. The library is adorned with columns and statues. The Grand Theater, where St. Paul preached, is one of the largest theaters in antiquity with a capacity of 24,000 seats. You will return to the buses through the Arcadian way, where Mark Anthony and Cleopatra once rode in procession. After the termination of the visit to Ephesus, your bus will take you to Kusadasi.
Join the group for a refreshment stop and a brief carpet presentation or return directly to the ship which is within walking distance. Time permitting on the return to downtown a stop at a leather outlet for a fashion show may be included.
