What to Expect
There are many ancient Greek and Roman ruins around the Mediterranean, but few are as spectacular as Ephesus. Your tour of expertly preserved and restored Ephesus and Kusadasi will leave you with stories to share and a deeper understanding of the incredible reach of the Greek and Roman empires.

During your private shore tour to Ephesus, you will be led through the incredible archeological site, discovering the epic amphitheater, roman baths, famous celsius library, Hadrian's Temple, and more. Keep an eye out for the footprints still showing in the rocks, pointing the way to the brothel!

After Ephesus, your guide will lead you to the Temple of Artemis, one of the Wonders of the Ancient World. Here, you can imagine what the grandeur of this now fallen temple might have looked like in all its glory.

Then it's on to St. John's Basilica, for a look at the resting place of the author of the Bible's Book of Revelations. Nearby you can also stop at a local carpet factory to learn the ins-and-outs of this ancient art, and maybe purchase something to take home.

Finally, you will head to Kusadasi for a quick shopping opportunity before heading back to your cruise ship. If you only have a few hours on shore, this is the best way to experience the magic and wonders of this beautiful corner of Turkey.
