Stop at the House of Virgin Mary, declared a place of pilgrimage in 1892, and has since been visited by many Christian pilgrims. Visit Ephesus, built in the 4th century B.C., this is one of the most interesting and extensive ancient cities in the world and the center of attraction in the Aegean region.
