Visit the Basilica of St. John and the magnificent archaeological site of Ephesus.
After meeting your official Turkish guide at the cruise ship pier, you will continue to Selcuk, where the Roman city of Ephesus is located.
Upon arrival, you will visit Basilica of St. John, built in the 6th century to house his tomb chamber. It is believed that St. John spent his last years in the region around Ephesus, and, 300 years after his death, a small chapel was constructed over his grave. During the reign of Emperor Justinian, the small chapel was changed into a marvelous basilica.
You will now continue on to Ephesus, one of the most magnificent and best-preserved ancient sites in the world. Tour the site, including the Celsus Library, whose facade has been carefully reconstructed from all original pieces, the Great Theatre with a seating capacity of 24,000, and the Temple of Hadrian.
