OVERVIEW: The Izmir Fast Track to Ephesus is great for the cruise passengers with a limited time in Izmir. The tour includes a round trip to the popular Ephesus Archaeological Site (largest open air museum in Turkey), St John's Basilica (where St John is buried), the remnant of the Temple of Artemis (one of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World), and lunch on the drive back to Izmir.
INCLUDED: dependable driver, A/C vehicle and licensed guide
NOT INCLUDED: entrance fees, lunch, and tips (appreciated when deserved)
HIGHLIGHTS: Visit Ephesus, the ancient city of 250,000, and see the massive Grand Theatre that had a capacity of 25,000 (the site where St Paul preached to the Ephesians). Learn about the Celcius Library, (which became a wedding gift for Cleopatra), the Curetes Street, the Fountain of Trajan, the Hadrian's Gate, the smaller Odeon Theatre, and much more. As we leave the site, we stop for a photo opp. at the remnant of the Temple of Artemis, (which was once four times larger than the Acropolis in Athens). This is where the world's royalty would come with treasures to worship. This was a key factor in making Ephesus one of the world's richest cities. Experience the The Basilica of St. John (created over an older chapel and the tomb of St John). Lastly, you'll have a refreshing bite to eat before leaving the Selsuk area heading back to Izmir.
