The Historical Background of Ephesus

We can hear you questioning what makes Ephesus so special, like the only game in town?

Here is your answer: Ephesus diverges from the other antique cities and becomes unique of its kind because of the strict protection in force. Building is not allowed within the borders of the antique city.

Firstly, it is believed that the city was built by Kroisos-the Lydian King and dedicated to Artemis- the Priapus goddess.

Also, it is said that it took almost 120 years to build this massive city and it became the capital of the Hellenistic Period and one of the most important centers of the said period because of its closeness to the harbors and crucial location.

The Importance of Ephesus for Christianity

Apart from its historical importance, Ephesus also has special meaning for Christianity.

According to the claims, the Holy Bible was written by St. John and mother Mary closed her eyes to the world in this antique city.

Despite hosting 1,5 million people approx. every year from different countries all around the world, that is the reason why a great majority of these guests consist of Christian people.

During Marmaris Ephesus Tour

First of all, we will start our Marmaris Ephesus Tour and take you to the west part of Aegean area where the region of Selcuk is located. Besides being a lovely and small place itself, our purpose is to find Ephesus that is located in the heart of Selcuk.

Then, take a stroll through the cobbled streets of marble, mosaics and frescoes which still adorn the walls of the ancient houses. Temple of Hadrian, baths and a brothel are among the perfectly preserved city attractions. You will be fascinated when you witness the existence of the numerous small details hidden in every single corner and want to know what their underlying story is.

Do not miss:

• The famous Celsius Library, the most impressive building in Ephesus,
• Theater, which housed about 25,000 residents for gladiatorial contests and theatrical performances that has a spectacular view over the main street, lined with marble fountains, temples and baths,
• The Temple of Hadrian,
• House of Love,
• Agora and more…

Just contact us and let us play a part of this precious experience of yours.

It’s such a nice idea to connect Marmaris and Ephesus, a UNESCO World Heritage. I’ve always wanted to visit there but getting to there on your own is quite expensive (renting car etc.). This tour is very cheap comparing to others and it was satisfoctory. Thanks for our amazing guide by the way, he was awesome! Ephesus is a magnificent place
