Begin your guided tour with a comfortable drive to Ephesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with an incredible history. Ninety minutes are allocated for a comprehensive walking tour of this momentous city. Built in the 10th century B.C., Ephesus contains the largest collection of Roman ruins in the Eastern Mediterranean region. Famed for the Temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, this historic city has plenty of sights to offer to the eager eye. Your guide will walk with you through one of the most magnificent excavations in the world, bringing it to life for you through its history. See the Odeon, the Upper Agora, the Fountain of Trajan, the Steam Baths of Scholastica, the Temple of Hadrian, and the impressive Library of Celsus, considered as one of the most magnificent ruins of the ancient world. The Grand Theater, where St. Paul preached, is the largest.
Next, you will drive to tour the ancient city of Miletus, which once was one of the biggest cities in Anatolia. Miletus is perhaps most famous for its genius philosophers and architects, such as Thales, Anaksimandros, Anaksimenes, Hippodamos, and Isidoros. Miletus is also famous for the Faustina Baths. Although it has not been restored or studied to the extent that Ephesus has, it is still an important look into the life of this ancient civilization.
Then, a short drive takes you to the town of Didyma and lunch at a local restaurant.
After lunch, you will visit the archeological site of Didyma, which is not an ancient city, but a sacred place of worship. Didyma’s fame rests on the magnificent Temple of Apollo, a building of awesome scale whose proportions seem more in keeping with the gods than man.
The return to the port will be along the same route taken in the morning.

At Moonstartour, we strive to earn repeat business from you! From our travelers, we love that they recommend us to their friends and family. All referrals are extremely valuable to us and we know that we have to work diligently to deserve them.
