Ephesus Daily Tour, Daily Tours from Istanbul
Daily Ephesus Tour  (  L )
We pick you up early morning from your hotel and take you to Istanbul airport for a flight to Izmir, where we meet you at the airport and take you to Ephesus.
The ruins of Ephesus are foremost among the world's great tourist attractions. The surrounding area was already inhabited in the Neolithic age (6,000 BC). Ephesus itself was founded in the 10th century BC and it became a member of the Ionian League during the Classical Greek era. The Temple of Artemis, built in about 550 BC, was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Thanks to the cult of Artemis, the city became famous for its promotion of women's rights. Perhaps because of this, the temple was destroyed in 401 AD. Today all that remains is one simple column but you can feel the magic of the place as you wander through this ancient city.
The Library of Celsus, built in 124 AD in memory of a Roman governor of Asia Minor, who was buried in a sarcphagus beneath it, once held nearly 12,000 scrolls. It faced east so that the morning light could penetrate the reading rooms. The marvellous architectural perspective of the facade has been painstakingly reconstructed from all the orignial pieces. Built in 150 AD, the Odeon was a small roofed theatre seating 1,500 people. The Temple of Hadrian was built about the same time but was substantially repaired in the 4th century AD. The Temple of Domitian was one of the largest places of worship in the city. The Basilica of St John was built in the 6th century AD over what was assumed to be the saint's tomb. On your guided tour you will also see the Baths of Varius, the Prytaneion , the  Fountain  of  Pollio , the Gate  of Augustus, the State  Agora, and Harbour Street with the Necropolis.
The House of the Virgin Mary was discovered  in a vision by a bedridden German nun in 1812. This stone building is believed by Muslims and Christians  to be where the Virgin Mary lived her last years.
At the end of the tour we return to Izmir Airport for your evening flight to Istanbul, where we take you back to your hotel.
