This is your opportunity to visit the magnificent ruins of Ephesus - one of the best preserved Greek/Roman cities in Asia Minor and experience the historical and religious values around it. Stop at the House of Virgin Mary, declared a place of pilgrimage in 1892. It has since been visited by many Christian pilgrims. Visit Ephesus, built in the 4th century BC. This is one of the most interesting and extensive ancient cities in the world.

The remains from the Roman period are the Grand Theater, the Library of Celsus, the Temple of Hadrian, Scholastica Baths, the Odeon, the Lower Agora, and the State Agora. Once in Kusadasi, join the group for a brief carpet presentation, refreshment and shopping opportunity or return to your ship, which is within walking distance.
