In the 21st century the incredible history of Ephesus has made the city an outdoor museum. Walking through the city brings about a sense of awe in most people. It is amazing to consider the amount of work that went into the monuments and structures without the modern technology that is used today.
The highlights within Ephesus include the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world. The temple has been rebuilt many times over the centuries. Today there are only ruins. The temple’s guardian is the Goddess Artemis, a symbol of abundance, hunting and wild life. The original statue of Artemis was removed from Ephesus and is exhibited in the Selcuk Museum.

Your hotel in Bodrum
You will be picked up from your hotel in Bodrum in an air-conditioned vehicle for your Ephesus Tour. The drive from Bodrum to Ephesus takes around 3 hours and you will stop for breakfast (payable direct) on the way.
At Ephesus you will be taken on a guided tour which includes:
• Amphitheatre: The Amphitheatre was build in the 3rd century, BC. It has 25,000 seats and an 18 meter high stage house. The theatre was used both for entertainment in the form of concerts and plays, and for religious, political and philosophical discussions, as well as gladiator and animal fights.
• Ephesus Terrace Houses: These 1st century AD houses were known as houses for the rich. Two of the houses have been restored and are open to the public as museums.
• Octagon: The Octagon is a burial chamber for Ptolemy Arsinoe IV, the youngest sister of the famous Cleopatra VII. She was murdered in 41 BC.
• Marble Road: The Marble Road starts from the amphitheatre to the Celsus Library. This is a portion of the sacred way that leads past Panayirdagi to the Temple of Artemis. The road was built in the 1st century A.D, and it was later rebuilt in the 5th century.
• The Temple of Artemis: The Temple of Artemis is one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, dating back to the 6th century AD. You’ll see the ruins of the temple; columns made entirely of marble. The most beautiful preserved pieces from the temple are on display at the London British Museum.
You’ll be taken back to your hotel in Bodrum, where your tour ends.
Please call the activity operator at least 24 hours prior to start of the tour for reconfirming departure details.
Great trip. The guide spoke far too much. Four hours of listening to her voice was tiresome. The rest of the trip was great....Paul C Burnett, Australia
