Upon your request we meet at Kusadasi port.
: which was established as a port, was used to be the most important commercial centre. It played a great role in the ancient times with its strategic location. Ephesus
is located on a very fertile valley.
, once, the trade centre of the ancient world, a religious centre of the early Christianity and today, Ephesus
is an important tourism centre in Turkey.
The ancient city Ephesus
is located in Selcuk, a small town 30km away from Kusadasi.
House of Virgin Mary : is located on the top of the "Bulbul" mountain 9 km ahead of Ephesus
, the shrine of Virgin Mary enjoys a marvelous atmosphere hidden in the green. It is the place where Mary may have spent her last days. Indeed, she may have come in the area together with Saint John, who spent several years in the area to spread Christianity. Mary preferred this remote place rather than living in crowded place.
Temple of Artemis : is known as one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world. It has been built in the areas of Ephesus
on a flat area which has over the centuries turned into a swamp. The new Artemis has been rebuilt in the 2nd century BC. Located on top of the previous one, it had tremendous dimensions: 127 columns of each 17,5 meters high. Unfortunately this one has also been destroyed by fire, reconstructed and again demolished by earthquakes, rebuilt and at last looted by Goths one year later.
