  • Notes

    We recommend you to wear comfortable clothes and comfortable walking shoes and bring a bottle of water, hat, sunscreen, and an umbrella for rainy or sunny days especially during summer as it gets very hot and it is hard to find a shade in Ephesus. You may bring your cameras but tripods are not allowed in Ephesus. You may wear shorts and sleeveless t-shirts in Turkey. There’s no obligation to cover your head or shoulders in Ephesus. For the House of Virgin Mary or the mosques, a pashmina would be enough to respect while visiting those places. This trip requires a considerable amount of walking and is not recommended for those with walking issues.


  • See the House of Virgin Mary where Mary had spent her last day.
  • Admire the ancient architecture first hand.
  • Visit the Basilica of St. John where it is believed that the evangelist St. John spent his last years in the region around Ephesus and is buried in the southern slope of Ayosolug Hill.
