When your cruise arrives in the Kusadasi port, your private guide meets you at the port for your tour.
Discuss the options for your day with your guide, including one of the region's top attractions. Ephesus is considered one of the best examples of an ancient Roman city, and the well-preserved ruins give you a glimpse of an important commercial center for western Anatolia.
The Terrace Houses housed the wealthy people of Ephesus, and you can see their mosaics, frescoes, and early central heating systems.
Located near Ephesus, the ruins of the Temple of Artemis represent one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Basilica of St John is the site where the early Christian saint may have been entombed. The Ephesus Archaeological Museum in Selcuk contains finds from the Ephesus excavations.
If you'd like to see a picturesque hillside village, head to Sirince to walk through cobblestone streets, shop for local handicrafts, taste the locally made fruit wines, and enjoy the scenery.
Your tour includes stops for a traditional Turkish lunch, shopping, and sightseeing. Have up to 10 hours to explore before your guide returns you to the Kusadasi port at least one hour before your cruise departs.
