A visit to Ephesus once the commercial center of the ancient world  is a highlight of any visit to Turkey. The city, whose wealth and patronage supported its splendid architectural program, was dedicated to the goddess Artemis. Her enormous temple, once considered one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World and rebuilt several times, dates in its latest form from the third century B.C. The ruins also include a theater, gymnasium, agora and baths, as well as the Library of Celsus. It is recorded that St. John brought the Virgin Mary to Ephesus after the death of Jesus Christ and that she spent her last days in a small house built for her on Bulbuldagi (Mt. Koressos). Now a popular place of pilgrimage for Christians and Muslims the house has received the official sanction of the Vatican and Christians observe a commemoration ceremony every year on August 15th.08:05 - 08:55 : Pick up from the Hotel08:55 - 09:05 : Departure from Agency09:30 - 09:30 : Arriving to the temple of Artemis09:55 - 10:05 : Arriving to Ephesus ruins10:05 - 12:30 : Seeing around the Ephesus ruins12:30 - 13:45 : Lunch13:45 - 13:50 : Departure to the Virgin Mary14:20 - 15:05 : Visiting the Virgin Mary House15:30 - 15:30 : Arriving the old mosque called Isabey16:05 - 17:05 : Delivery to the HotelsHighlights :•    Relive the days of Julius Caesar•    See UNESCO World Heritage Site ancient city•    See the early temples & ancient public library•    Take in the sight of the huge Ephesus theatre.•    Visit the site of the 'House of the Virgin Mary'
