In the Ephesus with Terrace Houses tour from Kusadasi or Selcuk county, we will pass through the verdant landscapes and arrive to Ancient City of Ephesus to see one of the most spectacular excavations in the world. You will see the Odeon, The Fountain of Trajan, the stream baths of Scholastika, the Temple of Hadrian, the Grand Theater - where Saint Paul preached is believed to be the largest outdoor theater in the ancient world with a capacity of 24,000 seats, and impressive library of Ephesus which is adorned with columns and statues. Finally we will visit the Terrace Houses, containing handsome frescoes from the 2nd century CE which extend up the hill. They once housed the wealthier and more prominent families of the city, who lavished the interiors with superbly preserved frescoes and mosaics. The decor and furnishings of the houses have provided some interesting informations about the life style of Ephesian elite during the Roman and early Byzantine periods.
Inevitably, the houses have been compared with similar buildings found in the parts of the Roman Empire, particularly with the1C villas of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The consensus is that the Ephesians houses are in no way inferior to these. After Ephesus Terrace Houses we will take a visit over to the Ephesus museum, one of the best regional museums in Turkey as it houses a large collection of objects found at Ephesus in the surrounding countryside. They are displayed clearly and imaginatively in several rooms and in a large inner courtyard.
After you have taken in the sights your Ephesus Tour, your tour guide will give you approx one hour free time to stroll at your leisure or relax have some refreshments in the Ephesus Museum, When the tour has finished your Ephesus Tour guide will return you to your pick up point.
