Enjoy a luxurious, private, full-day tour of the stunning ancient city of Ephesus. Visit the Temple of Hadrian, the Library of Celcus, the vast Great Theatre, and then head just outside of Ephesus to visit the final resting place of the Virgin Mary.
What to Expect
Explore the spectacular city of Ephesus, rich in Greek, Roman and Biblical history and boasting an extraordinary number of superbly preserved monuments.
As one of the best-preserved classical cities of the Mediterranean, Ephesus is the best place in the world to get a feeling of what life was like in Roman times. Walk along its remarkably well-preserved marble streets, flanked by Roman columns, temples, and fountains. Admire the fascinating ancient structures surrounding you, including the spectacular Temple of Hadrian, the stunning facade of the Library of Celsus, and the vast Great Theater.
Then continue the tour just outside the city with a visit to the House of the Virgin Mary lies. According to Christian tradition – and now recognized by the Vatican – Mary was brought here by the Apostle John after the Resurrection of Christ and lived her final days in this house.
