You can also go to see the last remaining column of the Temple of Artemis, one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. Discover the last house where the Virgin Mary was said to have lived, located on Nightingale Mountain, and experience the serenity of a sacred site of pilgrimage for Christians and Muslims alike. Walk in the footsteps of Alexander the Great, St Paul, Mother Mary, and Anthony and Cleopatra, and see the homes of the wealthy of Ephesus at the Terrace Houses.

Enjoy a pleasant horseback ride along scenic trails in Kusadasi, or take a thrilling Jeep safari along dirt tracks. Go to Sirince village to see how traditional carpets are woven, or head to Selcuk, former capital of the Emirate of Aydin, for a personal cooking class. Relax with a Turkish hammam steam bath in Kusadasi, or purchase souvenir gifts on a shopping adventure. The choice is yours.
