Visiting: Ephesus, House of Virgin Mary

Duration: 8 hours

As you walk out of Bodrum Harbour, your professional local guide will be waiting for you with a name placard, ready to transport you to the incredible sights of Selcuk.

First is the Ancient City of Ephesus which dates back to the 10th century BC and was once one of the largest Roman cities of its time. The well preserved ruins allow you to get a glimpse into the lives of these ancient people, including the Odeon, the large theater with a capacity of 25,000 people, as well as the impressive Celsius Library, completed in 120 AD and once holding 12,000 scrolls.

House of the Virgin Mary
The House of the Virgin Mary is just a short drive from Ephesus and is believed to be where Mary lived out her final years. It now serves as an important pilgrimage site, with people of all religions coming to pay their respects and take in the magnificent views across Selcuk's surrounding region.

Don't miss the opportunity to visit the Terrace Houses section, located inside the Ancient City of Ephesus. Although it has an extra entrance fee of 15 USD per person, it is for many a highlight of their visit . The oldest building, "The houses of the rich Romans", dates back to the 1st century BC and is famed for its beautiful mosaics and frescoes, as well as its clay pipe water and heating system. In this section there are over 100 stairs so we do not recommend this optional extra for people with physical disabilities. It takes a minimum of 30 minutes to visit.


Lunch is not included in the cost of the tour. We will suggest options for local Turkish restaurants and provide ample time for you to have a sit-down lunch.
