Start the day with morning pickup at your Kusadasi hotel or cruise ship: precise pickup time depends on your location, and the supplier will confirm the exact time upon booking. Board a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan for the trip to Ephesus, then continue into the UNESCO-listed city on foot.
Learn the story of the ancient Greeks and Romans who once lived in the sprawling, stone city, and explore some of Ephesus’ key landmarks. Take in a theater that once could seat 25,000 spectators at plays, speeches, and gladiatorial events, then visit the still-standing Library of Celsus, built by a senator’s son to house a collection of 12,000 scrolls.
You’ll also see the Temple of Hadrian Roman baths, and forum, with a total of three hours in the city before you follow the Arcadian Way back to the city entrance. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel or port in early afternoon.
