You will start your Ephesus visit from the upper site gate. During this 2 hour visit you will have chance to learn about the history of Ephesus and see the highlights of this site: Odeon, Celsus Library, Great Theater and Hercules Gate. You will have plenty of time to walk around and take photos, if some group members want, they can visit the Terrace Houses, houses of rich Ephesians.
The guide can give you general information about this area, while the rest of the group have time on their own. After you leave Ephesus, the next stop is the Selcuk town for your lunch break. After tasting authentic local food, you are back on your way to the port. Make a last stop at the Temple of Artemis and spend about 30 minutes here. Your tour finishes at Kusadasi port.
