What You Can Expect
See the famous Fountains of Trajan, built to honor the emperor of the same name, and the Polio Fountain, located opposite the Domitian Temple. Visit the Temple of Hadrian, the Private House (a brothel which was part of the scholastic baths), the Library of Celsius and the bouleuterion (a small theater used for the meetings of the Senate). Admire the Great Theater, which was completed by the Romans in 117 AD and has a capacity for 24,000 spectators.
After enjoying a lunch of Turkish cuisine (included), you will visit the House of Virgin Mary, where she spent the last days of her life. Next, see the graceful columns and mosaics that remain of the Basilica of St John, built by the Emperor Justinian over the tomb of St John the Apostle, before returning to your ship at the Kusadasi port, where you tour concludes.

Very knowledgeable tour guide but it was very hot on that day and there is a lot of climbing and walking involved. After the tour there was still enough time for shopping at the harbor before we had to return to the ship.
Loved this tour. We had only 12 people, this tours from the ship had 40. Ruins at Ephesus are amazing. In better condition than Roman ruins anywhere in Italy. Guide was on time, knowledgeable and fun.
