Meet your professional guide and set off to visit the ruined city of ancient Ephesus, founded by the Carians and Lelegs. Today, this is one of the most magnificent and best-preserved archaeological sites in the world. You will see the glorious Celsus Library façade, restored and reconstructed in the 1970s, the Temple of Hadrian and the Great Theater with a seating capacity of 25,000 people. Your guide will share some little-known details about the life and times of the ancient city. You will also visit the Ephesus Archaeological Museum. This small museum in Selcuk boasts an incredible collection of Hellenistic and Roman statues, carved reliefs and artifacts unearthed from the ruins of Ephesus. The famous statue of Artemis (goddess of fertility) is housed here – don’t miss it. At the end of your tour, you will stop for refreshments and a carpet demonstration at a local weaving village. Enjoy watching the skilled artisans spinning and dying yarn and weaving carpets. From here, you will drive back to the port, then either return directly to the ship or stay in Kusadasi.
