Trip advisor

Your private Ephesus Tour Guide will welcome you at Kusadasi port. Then you will meet your private driver and get on a luxurious, A/C, comfortable vehicle. After 30 minutes’ you Ephesus tours from Kusadasi will begin. First you will visit the House of the Virgin Mary. We will drive to the mountain where the House of the Virgin Mary is located in a nature park between Ephesus and Selcuk. This is believed to be the last residence of the Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus. The peaceful site is sacred to both Christians and Muslims and is visited by many tourists and pilgrims. This House was later visited by Popes Paul VI and John Paul II, who confirmed its appropriateness as a place of pilgrimage. On November 29, 2006, Pope Benedict XVI celebrated mass here.

Following you will visit Ancient Ephesus City. For a few hours you will feel like a Roman citizen living in the past in the ancient city of Ephesus.
