Ancient Ephesus - KD1R

Uncover ancient Greek wonders on a three-hour guided walking tour of Ephesus, as you comb the ruins of its temples, stand before the Library of Celsus, and walk along the historic Arcadian Way. Follow your knowledgeable guide on foot around Ephesus, an ancient Greek city and former commercial trading hub. Enter the UNESCO World Heritage Site through the timeworn Magnesian Gate and pass the Odeon, a small covered theater where plays and concerts took place. Learn about the divine-inspired statues surrounding the Fountain of Trajan and the spa-like ambience of the Scholastica baths. Pass the grand temple of Hadrian before admiring the sheer size of the Great Theatre, where some 25,000 spectators watched gladiator battles and religious speeches. You'll be awed by the Corinthian-style façade of the Library of Celsus, a well-preserved depository known to house up to 12,000 scrolls. Then traipse along Arcadian Way, between the harbor and theatre, just like local merchants, sailors, kings and emperors once did. Your return drive to Kusadasi ends with a short presentation on Turkish carpets and a stop by a leather factory for shopping.

Highlights:
• Ephesus: Ancient history comes to life on a guided stroll around this ruined city's fountains, temples, baths and Great Theatre.
• Library of Celsus: Built in 117 A.D., this well-preserved building held the area's most important scrolls among its Corinthian columns.
• Arcadian Way: Embrace the ancient essence of Greece while walking along the main street path where Ephesians entered the city.
