About this activity
Expect pickup from your hotel in Marmaris or Icmeler by 6:30am: your local operator will confirm the exact time after booking. Breakfast is included, so no need for a breakfast box!

It's a bit less than a 3-hour drive to the ancient city of Ephesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that's one of the best-preserved Roman cities still extant. You'll soon appreciate this as you stroll its marble-paved streets and admire mosaics and frescoes.

During antiquity, Ephesus was one of the largest Roman cities in Asia, a commercial, religious, and social center due to its bustling harbor. Your guide will show you the Temple of Hadrian, the ancient baths, and a building many believe was the city's brothel: don't miss the Library of Celsus, the most impressive of the structures in Ephesus.

You'll visit the theater, which once held around 25,000 citizens, who gathered to watch theatrical performances and gladiator battles. Today, the site offers impressive views across the main street with its marble fountains, temples, and baths.

Enjoy lunch at Ephesus before the short drive to the House of the Virgin Mary (Meryemana) on Mount Coressos. This tiny chapel is built atop the foundations of a ruined house where some Christians and Muslims believe the Virgin Mary spent her last days.

You'll leave Ephesus around 3:30pm, returning to your hotel around 6:30pm.
