About this Ancient City of Ephesus Tour
Ephesus has survived many attacks and changed hands various times between conquerors. It was built in the 10th Century BC and, at its peak, a home to over 300,000 people. One of the main temples the city is famous for, is the Temple of Artemis. This is recognized as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient world. Other highlights include the magnificent Library of Celsus, built to store 12,000 scrolls, and one of the most impressive buildings of the Roman Empire. Followed by the Great Theatre, the Terraced Houses, and the Temple of Hadrian.
Ephesus Archaeological Museum
We also visit the Ephesus Museum during this private tour. The Ephesus Archaeological Museum was founded in 1964. You can admire the findings from the ongoing excavations at the site and artifacts from the Cukurici Mound, the basilica of St John, and the Temple of Artemis. Unlike many other museums globally, the galleries are filled with artifacts according to a theme; the museum is not designed to follow a chronological order.
Did you know that you can see a comprehensive collection of coins dating back to when people first used money in history!
There is time for lunch (not included) at a local family-run restaurant with typical local delicacies.
After your tour, your driver and guide will take you back to the cruise port again.
