Kusadasi Aydin, Turkey – A tour to the ancient city of Ephesus is a highlight of any trip to the beautiful country of Turkey. Ancient Ephesus is the best-preserved classical city in the Eastern Mediterranean and the largest open-air museum found in Turkey and has more than 30 buildings and structures linked together by streets that still have the Marks of Ancient Chariot wheels.
Ephesus borders the town of Selcuk, south of Izmir and only 15 minutes from the coastal town of Kusadasi making it perfect if you like to mix up your vacation with an ancient archaeology city tour of Ephesus and relaxing on the beach.
Tour the ancient city of Ephesus and spend a few hours walking in the footsteps of Alexander the Great, Apostles Paul, Caesar, Cicero, and John and many other well-known historical names. Walk in the path of toga-clad Romans along the marble-paved streets as your Ephesus tour guide brings everything alive with fascinating facts and tales. Wonder at the Roman baths, Fountain of Trajan, Agora, Odeon and Temple of Hadrian, and be in awe at the city’s two crowning glories: the 25,000-seater Great Theatre and the astonishing Library of Celsus that was once home to 12,000 precious scrolls.
See the Temple of Artemis while on your private Ephesus tour that is known as one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world which has been built in the area of Ephesus on a flat area which over the centuries turned into a swamp. If you take an Ephesus tour today, you can still see the ruins of the foundations of this marvellous construction of the Hellenistic Age that is entirely made of marble and full of sculptured columns, capitals and shafts. The most beautiful remains of the temple of Artemis are now exhibited in the London British Museum.
Not to be missed while on your Ephesus tour is the House of the Virgin Mary found on the summit of “Bulbul” mountain 9 km from Ephesus. The shrine of Virgin Mary enjoys an excellent atmosphere hidden in the green and is the place where Mary is believed to have spent her last days. Today it still holds services for both Christians and Muslims and visitors can take a sip from any of the metal taps and make a wish. Local urban legends say that each tap resembles an aspect of life. One reflects wealth, another signifies health, and the last one is fertility. Go to the wishing well and tie a personal possession such as a napkin, handkerchief and your wish will come true.
