Daily Ephesus Tour

Daily Ephesus Tour The major reason for visiting Kusadasi: eyeballing the vast ruins of Ephesus, the ancient Greek city. Kusadasi became a major port — claiming 250,000 residents during the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D. — in the Roman Empire. About 27-square-miles of awesome, excavated ruins lure visitors past houses, shops, a tavern, a bordello, columns, and even to the toilets, whose rows of cutouts in long marble slabs above mosaic floors provided businessmen places to socialize. Ephesus Cruise Port Excursions

The iconic façade of the libraryof Celsus, Ephesus Day Tour completed about 125 A.D., displays intricately carved columns and pediments. The library could store 12,000 papyrus scrolls in niches, read through slots. Despite earlier destruction, it was rebuilt in the 20th century. A Jewish menorah carved into one of the library’s steps attests to a Jewishcommunity’s existence. Daily Ephesus Tour

 

 

 

Ephesus Tours From İstanbul

Ephesus Tours From İstanbul My wife and I are planning a trip in Turkey arriving on 30 September 2013 and departing 25 October.

We are English-speaking Australians in our mid 50s and are looking for a tour at a relaxed pace, with 4 to 5 stays at key areas and then day trips from these areas. We would consider being part of a small group tour for a portion of the trip, perhaps along the Aegean coast. We like 3 or 4 star accommodation and prefer to stay in places with good natural light and views.
