Expect prompt pickup at 8am at your Izmir hotel. In a comfortable tour vehicle, travel to the ancient city of Ephesus, located about 37 miles (60km) away.
Once there, disembark for a tour of the city's major sights, accompanied by your guide's informative commentary about Ephesus' history and what it was like to live in the ancient Roman and Greek eras in Anatolia. You'll see excavated historical structures such as the Great Theatre, the Arcadian Way, the Scolastica Baths, the Temple of Hadrianus, and more. Visit the site where the 3rd Ecumenical Council was held, the Church of Mary.
Stop for a lunch buffet at Selcuk village, then visit the one of the oldest mosques in the area. Please note: modest dress is required to enter this site of worship. If time allows, you may visit traditional merchants in the area for some souvenir shopping.
Make the return trip to Izmir for drop-off back at your original departure point.
