  • Kusadasi (Ephesus) - Ephesus with Terrace Houses & House of the Virgin Mary 139(USD)
    75 spaces remaining

    Description

    A scenic drive from the port takes you to the Shrine of the Virgin Mary with wonderful views of the Byzantine fortress in Selcuk and the Temple of Artemis. From your window, great vistas of the valley can be seen as you travel a long and winding road to the picturesque Solmissos Mountains. The House of the Virgin Mary is considered by the Vatican to be a Holy Place, and a small shrine, dedicated to her, was found in the ruins when the house was first discovered. Next, the ancient city of Ephesus was the largest regional center of commerce with an estimated population of around 225,000. It was the most important city in Asia Minor, following only Constantinople. It is estimated that roughly 15% of the total city has actually been excavated. Visit the following sites: The Odeon Theatre had a seating capacity of about 1,500 seats. Built in 150 A.D., it was primarily used for small plays, concerts and official public ceremonies. The Hadrian Temple was dedicated in 118 AD to both Hadrian and to the goddess Artemis; it underwent reconstruction in the 4th century. This impressive Corinthian-style temple has beautiful reliefs on the porch. According to the belief of the Ephesians, the Medusa head on the porch would protect the city from its enemies. Then, visit the spectacular Terrace Houses (villas) located on top of the hill within Ephesus. They have a fantastic view of the entire city of Ephesus. They were inhabited by wealthy Ephesians and are finely decorated with incredible mosaics and frescoes. The Terrace Houses were discovered in excavations carried in the 1980s by a team of Austrian archeologists. Along with those in Pompeii, they constitute some of the most vivid examples of Roman domestic architecture to survive today. Proceed to the Celsus Library; the library is the best preserved structure of its kind. The inscription on the side of the building's front staircase states that the library was built by Julius, in his father's honor, after his death. His father, Celsus, was the Roman governor of Asia Minor early in the 2nd century AD; Celsus’ sarcophagus is buried beneath the library. Next, visit the Great Theatre, which dates back to the Hellenistic period. In the 1st century AD, it was successfully reconstructed and expanded by the Romans until it reached the seating capacity of 25,000. This is also the place where it is believed that St. Paul preached. It is still used for performances today and is believed to be the largest theatre in the ancient world.

    Description

    Explore the two ancient Turkish cities of Miletus and Didyma on this half day Yachting Land Adventure. The first visit will be Ancient Miletus located near the present Akkoy at the mouth of the Buyuk Menderes (meander) River. Miletus owed its importance to its position on the trade routes. It was one of the largest cities in Anatolia. Highly prosperous, it founded many colonies and was the home of the ancient philosophers Anaximander, Anaximenes and Thales, the town planner Hippodamus and architect Isidorus. Having a prominent position, Miletus became the most important port in this area and it was the most active member of the twelve cities of the Ionian Confederation. From the 7th century B.C. the city has been controlled in turn by the Persians, Romans and Seljuk Turks. Then, you will visit Didyma. The world Didyma meant "twins" and it was associated by some as being the meeting place of Zeus and Leto to have their twins Apollo and Artemis. Didyma was famed as a prophecy center dedicated to Apollo, which served a similar purpose as the Delphi of Anatolia. It was not a city but a sanctuary linked to Miletus by Milesians with a 12-mile sacred road. The design of the Temple of Apollo, also known as the Didymaion, was artistically influenced by the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus and was constructed before Greek colonization really began. It is believed that the earliest fragments of the Temple date back to the 8th century BC.
