Private Sardes Tour

There was a Synagogue built in honour of the Jews by the Romans during the 2nd century A.D. Sardis was on the top of its glory. The Persians made Sardis the capital of the western districts of their empire, they also made the city the western terminal of the Great Postal Road that started in Susa in Elam near the Persian Gulf where are now the oil fields. This road was so well organized that it took only a week to bring important messages. Alexander the Great defeated the Persians and ancient Lydia together with all Asia-Minor was conquered by this Macedonian King and after his death Sardis fell into the hands of the Seleucids of Syria. The Roman Era started here in the second century B.C. In Byzantine times Sardis became the centre of a bishopric with the arrival and settling of Christianity one of the Seven Churches of the Apocalypse was known to be founded here. The town passed into the hands of the Turks. The most important architectural works that were discovered here were the synagogue and the Gymnasium. Both buildings date from the third century A.D. Other famous ruins are: the Byzantine Church, The House of Branzes, the Roman Stadium, the Roman and Byzantine Baths, and a Theatre built in the Hellenistic times and the Acropolis. The temple of Artemis is situated 2 km south of the city. An Altar had existed already here since the end of the fifth century B.C... The original Temple of Artemis was built in 300 B.C. It was attached to the before-mentioned altar and had its face to the west. Sardis had reached its zenith. The Sardians were of a very soft and weak character because of their wealth and fertility. Therefore, Sardis was a very suitable place for the Christians to settle.  Once the tour comes to an end it will be time to get back on the bus and to be driven back to your allocated drop off points, we trust that your tour with us today has been excellent and hope to see you again!

Temple of sin (moon) god

About 50 kilometers south of Şanlıurfa, Harran offers visitors a taste of a different culture, and its long history of settlement provides some fascinating historic attractions and links with the present. Although most tourists come here to soak up its ancient atmosphere, modern Harran, near the border with Syria, is also home to a distinctly Syrian Arab influence. Locals here speak Arabic as well as Turkish, and their traditional mud-brick beehive style of housing can also be found across the border in Syria's northeast.Throughout the excavation work in Harran, more than 10,000 historical artifacts including ceramic, glass and metal objects, coins, architectural pieces, figures, sculptures, bone and ivory objects, and storage jars have so far been unearthed, all of which are currently on display at the Şanlıurfa Archeology Museum.
