EPHESUS – TURKEYS JEWELL!

Posted by   |   May 19th, 2016   |   Categories: News

Thıs week we took a 2 day trip with our tour guests to visit two of the most remarkable sites in Turkey – Ephesus and Aphrodisias. 

Ephesus takes your breath away, with its amazing marble street, The Celcius Library, Stadium and Temple of Hadrian.  The Terraced Houses are a faırly recent excavation with fine examples of Roman mosaics in situ.   Included in our visit was the House of the Virgin which is purported to be the last home of  Mary.   To cap the day off we visited the recently restored Ephesus Museum, which houses amazing statues– the one of Artemıs  is a highlight

Aphrodisias – this site is not yet included as a World Heritage site – but it definitely should be. The Temples of Aphrodıte was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world!  Such a peaceful and beautiful site, off the beaten track – you can spend hours here exploring and feel yourself part of ancient times – really!   Lastly take a visit to the Museum where frescoes from the Scholastica are displayed,

Browse through our website destinations section for a detailed history of Ephesus ! 

You can visit Ephesus in a day trip from Istanbul or include it in a tour of Turkey!  Aphrodisıas can be included with your tour of Pamukkale or visited separately!
