1. Selcuk: Full-Day Ephesus and House of Virgin Mary Tour
Following a pickup from your hotel in Selcuk, enjoy a short drive to Ephesus in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. Start by visiting the extensive ruins in the ancient city. Admire the fascinating ancient structures surrounding you, including the spectacular Temple of Hadrian, the stunning facade of the Library of Celsus, and the vast Great Theater. Continue the tour to the Temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
