ITINERARY OF THE ACTIVITY
Your journey with us commences right AT THE CRUISE PORT! Upon your ship’s arrival at the port, our enthusiastic team eagerly awaits you near the Information Desk at the Exit Gate of the Cruise Port. You can easily identify us by the sign displaying your name.
Once you’ve confirmed your booking, we encourage you to contact our team to arrange the perfect meeting time. Since there are multiple Cruise Ships with different arrival and departure schedules, our specialists will assist you in determining the most suitable meeting time to align with your schedule. After we meet you, we promptly set the departure from port and drive 20 minutes to the Ephesus Ancient City. While driving, the tour guide will start giving you brief information about Turkey and about the region we are in at that moment.
During our tour we will visit the places below;
- EPHESUS ANCIENT CITY: One of the best well-kept Greco-Roman ancient cities in the world, also listed by UNESCO. Ephesus was an ancient Greek city on the west coast of Asia Minor, known for its well-preserved ruins of a Roman-era theater known that St. John and St. Paul preached to the Ephesians, library, and temples. A major trading center in its time. A must-see for history enthusiasts.
- TERRACE HOUSES OF EPHESUS: are a group of houses located on the slope of Bulbul Mountain, which was built for the wealthy citizens of Ephesus in the 1st century AD. They offer a unique insight into the daily life and customs of the ancient city’s elite, with beautifully preserved frescoes, mosaics, and household items on display.
- Kusadasi Town: We will drive through Kusadasi Town and will have a panoramic view while listening the key informations from our Local Tour Guide. (PASS BY)
- Kusadasi Castle: Also called Pigeon Island! One of the earliest settlements of modern Kusadasi. We will pass by and have an opportunity of seeing it in a distance. It is located very close to the Port, you might be able to have time after your tour if you are interested. (PASS BY)
During the tour, you’ll also have the opportunity to visit a cooperative where you can explore some of Turkey’s most cherished handcrafted treasures, such as ranch-style rugs, kilims, and renowned local leather products. Here, you’ll not only gain valuable insights but also witness the incredible skills and dedication of the village women who have been weaving these artistic pieces for centuries. We recommend a visit to one of these cooperatives, as it provides a wonderful chance to relax and take a break, all while immersing yourself in the captivating world of Turkish arts.
