Ephesus & House of Virgin Mary Guided Tour from Marmaris

2. Ephesus & House of Virgin Mary Guided Tour from Marmaris

On this full-day trip you’ll explore Ephesus, one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. The city was the commercial, religious, and social center of antiquity. Ephesus is known as one of the best-preserved archaeological sites in the world, as you’ll soon appreciate as you walk down its marble-paved streets and see mosaics and frescoes still decorating the walls of the ancient Roman houses. Visit the Temple of Hadrian, the baths, and the city's brothel. In particular, you won’t want to miss the Library of Celsus, the most impressive of the structures in Ephesus. The theater held 25,000 citizens, who gathered to watch theatrical performance and gladiator clashes. Today, from the site you’ll enjoy impressive views across the main street that’s lined with marble fountains, temples, and baths. After lunch, continue to the House of the Virgin Mary on Mt. Koressos. Experience the holy spirit of the humble house where the Virgin Mary is said to have spent her last days.

The excursion was great! Everything went smoothly with the cards. As a little tip for hunger, I can recommend the Love Café with a clear conscience! Clean and is also good for us Europeans :) The tour guide should work with her kind in a bar and not with tourists. I don't want to include that in the rating, because everything else was really great! Instead of taking the bus in Marmaris, I recommend a taxi for €7 to the bazaar, which saves you an hour's bus ride.

Comfortable and safe transport. Marmaris was better than expected. No pushy sellers and a very nice city. A bus tour with a guide to various sights was included: short stops at a jeweller's, Turkish Delight factory and viewpoint, before being dropped off in the center and having the rest of the day for your own activities.

A great day trip. Stroll comfortably through the harbour, shop and enjoy a meal. If you want, you can also take a city tour. However, this is associated with a visit from dealers.

had a great time wasn't expecting a coach tour to bazaare. people friendly in marmaris. had 4 hours shopping

It was a super relaxed round trip by boat...recommended.
