How do we do Ephesus excursion?
We start the day early in the morning. In our website (www.izmircityvision.com) we have several possibilities to participate in the Ephesus excursion. If you wish to visit only the ancient city of Ephesus click this link to get there. We have some mixtures too, like Ephesus + Temple Artemisia + Virgin Mary or Ephesus + St. Virgin mary + Typical Village….
Already, what is there to visit around Ephesus? The city of Izmir supports several villages around the city. One of these villages is called Selcuk. In the Selcuk village we can find the ancient city Ephesus, The Temple of Artemis, The House of St. Virgin Mary, The Isa Bey Mosque, The Basilica of St. Jean, The Typical Sirince Village, The Ephesus Museum.
Since the year 2015; The city of Ephesus, The House of St. Virgin Mary, The Cave of Seven Sleepers, The Basilica of St. John, The Temple of Artemis are in the UNESCO list (UNESCO World Heritage) When you see this symbol which means of a place is in this list.
In the city of Ephesus, we can find 2 entrance gates. One low and the other high. The top door is called The Magnesia Gate. On entering this door, the city slopes towards the lower door. This is why we choose to start the Ephesus excursion through this door.
We visit all the important places and we go out towards the low door. Because the duration of this visit is an hour and a half, approximately 1.7 km. We will meet you at the bottom.
