Description of the Ephesus and The Virgin Mary’s House Tour
Your experienced guide will greet you at the port or hotel in Izmir. Drive to the Ephesus-Selcuk area. Visiting Ephesus is one of the highlights of any trip to Turkey, and the open-air museum is regarded one of the best in the world.
As you wander through 2,000-year-old marble streets and view the Library of Celsius, Hadrians Temple and Fountains of Trajan, Polio and Vedious and Scholastic Bath, Bouloterion as well as the Great Theatre with 24,000 seats, Ephesus will come to life.
Next, we’ll head to the House of the Virgin Mary. The modest home in the Solmissos Mountains has been designated as the ultimate resting place of Mary by the Vatican.
During the first excavation of the home, archaeologists unearthed a modest shrine in honor of St. Mary.
After the Ephesus and The Virgin Mary’s Houuse Tour, you’ll be back in Izmir.
