You will meet your Biblical tour guide by the pick-up at your hotel. You will first visit the House of Virgin Mary. We usually spend 45-60 minutes there. But if you want to pray and need more free time, you can stay longer in the church. Catholic pilgrims visit this place based on their belief that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was taken to this house by Saint John and lived there during her final days until her assumption (according to Catholic doctrine). The House of Virgin Mary was visited by several popes: Pope Paul VI in the ’60s, Pope John-Paul II in the ’80s, and 2006 Pope Benedict XVI. It is an active catholic church today, and it is possible to join mass on Sundays.
Afterward, there is 15 minutes drive to Ephesus. During this tour, we will spend around 2 hours walking in Ephesus, where you can see the main points of this site such as The Great Theater and the Celsus Library.
