You’ll take a register of Kusadasi’s top sights on this trip. The first name you’ll put a tick against will be the Virgin Mary Monument. Historians believe Mary spent her last days in the area around this place of pilgrimage. Moving on, you’ll visit Ephesus. If walls could talk, these ruins would have some stories to tell. Back in the 1st century BC, this city was one of powerhouses of the Mediterranean. While you’re here, you’ll pass the place where the Temple of Artemis once stood. This ancient religious house is counted as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. These days, it pales in comparison to the emblem of Ephesus – the Library of Celcus, which was once one of the grandest libraries of antiquity. Moving on, you’ll drive through Selcuk. This town is thought to be the final resting place of the apostle St John. The last name on the register of this trip is the Isabey mosque. Built in the 14th century, this religious house is a hand-me-down from the Anatolian Beylik Empire.
Your tour ends with an optional visit to a carpet shop for a demonstration. If you don't wish to join the demonstration you can go straight back to the ship.
