Full description
Explore the legendary remains of Ephesus on this full-day sightseeing tour from Marmaris, including round-trip transfers from your hotel. Start your journey through history at the House of the Virgin. It is recorded that St. John brought the Virgin Mary to Ephesus after the death of Christ, and that she spent her last days in the small house on Mount Bulbuldagi (Koressos). Now a popular pilgrim site for Christians and Muslims, the house has received the official sanction of the Vatican. Next, explore the striking ruins of Ephesus. One of the most breathtaking sites is the remains of the Odeon Theatre, a semi-circular structure with a capacity for up to 1,400 spectators. See the Pollio Fountain, decorated with stunning works of ancient Roman art and statues carved into marble slabs. Go to the Gate of Heracles and admire the reliefs of Heracles built into the gate tower, and the second level reliefs of Heracles wrapped in a Nemea lion skin. Along the way, you will stop at the Temple of Hadrian and Ephesus Library. Completed by the Romans in 117AD, the Library is perhaps the most awe-inspiring façade still standing, with columns, statues and windows towering above you.

Although the pick up was a bit late, i thouroughly enjoyed the tour: Other than meal stlops and another rest stop, we only and one “stop” at a ceramics place which was interesting so that was okay. Generally I don’t like stopping at shops and other places and rather spend more time at the destination.

Tolle Tour. Leider nur englischsprachiger Guide, obwohl auf Deutsch gebucht wurde. 2/3 der Gäste im Bus waren Russen. Daher gab es eine 2. Reiseleiterin, die alles auch noch auf russisch erklärt hat. Im Bus etwas anstrengend. Bei der Führung durch Ephesos dann aber kein Problem, da die russische Gruppe separat gelaufen ist. Frühstück und Mittagessen waren okay.
