Set out to explore the vast classical site of Ephesus, one of the largest and best-preserved ancient cities in the Mediterranean. Once a major metropolis under Roman rule, today Ephesus offers intriguing insight into the Roman way of life. Marvel at the scale of the Great Theatre, view the remains of the Temple of Serapis, and gaze upwards at the spectacular Library of Celsus. Plus don’t forget the ruins of Temple of Artemis – also known as the Temple of Diana – one of the Seven Ancient Wonders.
Next venture just outside of Ephesus to visit the House of the Virgin Mary, a restored sacred site set on the slopes of Mount Koressos. The foundations of the building are thought to date back to the 1st century AD, and its original building is believed to have been the final home of the Virgin Mary. The shrine is simple and quaint, and still draws both Christian and Muslim pilgrims every year.
