What To Expect
Next, head to the House of the Virgin Mary, a site where it is said that Mary lived the end of her life. Inside the house, you will find a shrine dedicated to St Mary. Your guide will tell you about the discovery of this holy site, which occurred in the 19th century when a nun published recounts of her visions.
Depart the House of the Virgin Mary and venture to the Basilica of St John. Here, admire magnanimous columns and what remains of ancient mosaics, built by Emperor Justinian at the site of St John the Apostle’s tomb. At the Temple of Artemis, also known as the Temple of Diana, take in more rich history of one of the seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Make one last stop at the Ephesus Museum, where you can peruse excavations from the ancient city of Ephesus as well as frescoes and mosaics. Take in views of the surrounding countryside on your way back to your port, where you will board your ship for an on-time departure.
