Today you will take a tour of the Ephesus Ancient city. At the entrance of the city, you will see one building that looks out of place on a fertile plane, the harbour for Ephesus is still standing to this day although the coast now resides 7km away. Within the city, there are many private and public building to taking in, one that stands out is the Library of Celsus. This library was the price of place bringing scholars and poets from all around to visit and learn from the thousands of scrolls and books available. After a natural disaster and the city being attacked the build was destroyed, however, the first archaeologists rebuild the facade as a way to understand the layout better. Other buildings in the city have stood the test of time better with public baths, latrines, private homes and even a brothel can be found still standing.

The Temple of Artemis is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, an opulent temple that was made entirely out of marble with the pillars and niches being carved out of the stone. As with 6 of the other wonders, this one has been destroyed however parts of this can still be found in the area with some also being displayed in the London History Museum.

The Virgin Mary’s house is a strong comparison between the two religions. Where the Greek temple is grand and unique the home that Mary lived in is a simple cottage which contained a room for preparing and eating, a room for sleeping and relaxing, there is also an altar in her house for prayer and a personal well as she lived away from society.

Overnight in Selcuk or Kusadasi


Today you will take a journey across the stunning landscape of Turkey to the Pamukkale region. The journey takes approximately 3 hours where you will be able to enjoy the stunning and varied Turkish countryside. When you arrive you will enjoy a Turkish buffet lunch.

You will begin with the warm spring waters of Pamukkale, these mineral-rich waters have trickled down over the generations creating the white travertine rock formations from where the area gets its name. The rocks are said to look like fluffy cotton where the name Pamukkale, or Cotton Castle, comes from. As the water has run it created pools for the water to collect creating the wonderful stepped pools that can be found today.

You will then head to the nearby Hierapolis Ancient city. The stunning ancient city was popular for recreation, scholars and those suffering from illnesses. The Library here was capable of containing thousands of literature. The gymnasium was an impressive place for athletes to train and competitions to be held. Outside the city is a large Necropolis, where the common and wealthy citizens were buried together, however only those with money or influence had ornate sarcophagi available to them.
