The House Of Virgin Mary:
Visit the House of Mary; it will take about 40 minutes. We begin our full-day Ephesus tour by exploring the Virgin Mary’s House. Discovered in the 19th century, this site gained significance through the visions of Catherine Emmerich (1775-1824), a German nun who had never visited Ephesus. Tradition holds that St. John brought Mary to Ephesus between AD 37-48, and the house is a pilgrimage site for Christians. Its remarkable energy makes it an ideal place for prayer and reflection.
Ephesus Ancient City:
A visit to the Ephesus Ancient City will take about 3 hours. Located on the west coast of Turkey, Ephesus is a must-visit destination. This ancient Greek city, part of the Ionian League, housed the famous Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Ephesus is mentioned in St. John's Gospel and served as one of the Seven Churches of Asia. As you wander through the ruins, envision the wealth, taste, and everyday life of the Ephesians. It's a unique experience, walking in the footsteps of apostles and exploring the amalgam of Ancient Greek, Roman, and Byzantine civilizations.
The Temple of Artemis:
Visit the Temple of Artemis; it will take about 15 minutes. The Temple of Artemis (Diana), completed 550 years before Christ, was a marvel entirely built of marble. Though now in ruins, it remains an essential historical site.
St. John Basilica:
Visit St. John Basilica; it will take about 45 minutes. This site, standing over the believed burial site of John the Apostle, has undergone extensive restoration. While not massive, it holds historical importance, especially for the tomb of St. John. The basilica offers lovely views of the surrounding area, including the standing pillar of the Temple of Artemis. Regardless of your religious beliefs, the site is intriguing, and its history and legends ensure a memorable visit.
