In the Ephesus with Terrace Houses tour from Kusadasi or Selcuk county, we will pass through verdant landscapes and arrive at the Ancient City of Ephesus to witness one of the most spectacular excavations in the world. You'll explore the Odeon, The Fountain of Trajan, the stream baths of Scholastika, the Temple of Hadrian, and the Grand Theater - believed to be the largest outdoor theater in the ancient world with a capacity of 24,000 seats. Additionally, you'll visit the impressive library of Ephesus adorned with columns and statues.
Finally, we will explore the Terrace Houses, which contain intricate frescoes from the 2nd century CE that extend up the hill. These houses once accommodated the wealthier and more prominent families of the city, who adorned the interiors with superbly preserved frescoes and mosaics. The decor and furnishings of the houses provide valuable insights into the lifestyle of the Ephesian elite during the Roman and early Byzantine periods.
Comparisons with similar buildings found in other parts of the Roman Empire, particularly the 1st-century villas of Pompeii and Herculaneum, suggest that the Ephesian houses are in no way inferior. After the Ephesus Terrace Houses, we will visit the Ephesus Museum, one of the best regional museums in Turkey. It houses a large collection of objects found at Ephesus and in the surrounding countryside, displayed clearly and imaginatively in several rooms and a large inner courtyard.
After taking in the sights on your Ephesus Tour, your guide will provide you with approximately one hour of free time to stroll at your leisure or relax and have some refreshments in the Ephesus Museum. When the tour concludes, your Ephesus Tour guide will return you to your pick-up point.
