    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your Kusadasi hotel for a guided sightseeing tour of Ephesus. Your expedition into ancient Christian times begins with a drive aboard an air-conditioned coach to St John's Basilica at the summit of Ayasuluk Hill. Inside the basilica, observe the 4th century grave that is believed to keep the remains of the saint.

    Continue to Ephesus, an ancient city famous for its early Christian roots. Hear about Christ’s vision, in the book of Revelation, that shed light onto seven churches including Ephesus. Then, explore the Great Theater and Library of Celsus with your guide. Afterward, uncover one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Temple of Artemis, as well as other well maintained ancient temples.

    Stop along the way at a local eatery and savor Turkish delicacies for lunch. Listen as your guide delves deeper into the history of Ephesus and the surrounding region.

    Next, experience a place that has been a host to pilgrims for centuries - the House of the Virgin Mary. Hear about Mary’s final moments alive before embracing eternal rest. Then, learn how Pope Paul VI certified the site in 1967.

    After leaving the historic site of the House of the Virgin Mary, return by coach to your hotel.

    Great day out. The tour guide was excellent we enjoyed our walk around the place. So much history to absorb, and even a short tour of the highlights will take half a day.
