What to Expect
Afternoon Tour of Ancient Ephesus and Museum Meet your professional guide and set off to visit the ruined city of ancient Ephesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site founded by the Carians and Lelegs.

Today, this is one of the most magnificent and best-preserved archaeological sites in the world.

You will see the glorious Celsus Library façade, restored and reconstructed in the 1970s, the Temple of Hadrian, and the Great Theatre with a seating capacity of 25,000 people. Then, you will visit a new ongoing excavation site of the Church of Mary inside Ephesus. The church is located in the south stoa of the Olympian next to the harbor of Ephesus.

This is a very important church for Christianity because it was the first one devoted to the Virgin Mary. The Council of Ephesus and the Synod declared that church as the center of Christianity in 449 A.D.  

Your guide will share some little-known details about the life and times of the ancient city.

You will also visit the Ephesus Archaeological Museum. This small museum in Selcuk boasts an incredible collection of Hellenistic and Roman statues, carved reliefs and artifacts unearthed from the ruins of Ephesus.

The famous statue of Artemis (goddess of fertility) is housed here.

At the end of your tour, you will stop for refreshments and a carpet demonstration at a local weaving village. Enjoy watching the skilled artisans spinning and dyeing yarn and weaving carpets.

From here you can either return directly to the ship or  hotel stay in Kusadasi.

Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore on their own are welcome to do so, but must return to the ship on their own.
