As you walk out of Kusadasi Harbour please look for your guide who will be holding a name card. Your professional local guide for the day will be taking you to visit some of the amazing sights found in Selcuk's surrounding area.

The Ancient City of Ephesus dates back to 10th Century B.C. Once one of the largest Roman cities, the ruins are extremely well preserved for you to appreciate the way of life of these ancient people. You will be walked through the ruins to visit some of the major attractions like the large theater that used to hold up to 25,000 people, as well as the most photographed building – the Celsius Library. The library was completed back in 120 A.D. and used to house up to 12,000 scrolls. You will marvel at the grand sight that it is.

House of the Virgin Mary
Located just a short 7 kilometers from Ephesus stands the House of the Virgin Mary. Now an important pilgrimage site, the house is visited by many kinds of religions to pay their respects. The house is said to be where Mary lived out the last days of her life. On visiting the house you will also be able to appreciate the views over Selcuk and the surrounding area.

Do not miss a chance to visit the Terrace Houses section which is located inside of Ancient City of Ephesus and has an extra entrance fee of 15 USD per person. "The houses of the rich Romans", the oldest building, dates back to the 1st century BC until the 7th century AD. You will be able to see amazing mosaics and frescoes and the famous water-running and heating system with clay pipes. Anyone who has seen it will tell you that it is one of the highlights of this place as you can really picture the lifestyle of the people in that period. In this section there are over 100 stairs so we do not recommend it for people with physical disabilities. It takes a minimum of 30 minutes to visit.
