What to expect

Ephesus is one of the best-preserved ancient sites in the world. So well-preserved that it's not difficult to imagine the roar of the crowd at the Great Theatre, or the hubbub of the busy main street in its heyday 2,000 years ago. Defne, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘Home to one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – the Temple of Artemis – Ephesus was a beacon of power and wealth at that time. It was also an important hub of trade, culture and religion. It's influence spread far and wide, and it played a particularly important part in the story of early Christianity.'

You'll step back in time as you travel through sun-soaked hills and olive groves to explore Ephesus with your private guide. This extensive archaeological site encompasses marble-paved streets, mosaics in ancient Roman houses and epoch-defining buildings such as the Library of Celsus, the Temple of Hadrian and the Great Theatre. Your personal guide will explain the historical context and point out the most interesting features as you roam the site.

After your tour, we'll round things off with a visit to a ceramics factory to see how Turkish pottery is made. The Seljuks, who ruled much of Anatolia in the 11th century, are credited with bringing the art of pottery to Turkey from Central Asia. Marvel at the precision of the master potter – working only by eye – as he decorates and paints traditional pieces. It's one of the best places to snap up some authentic souvenirs and support local livelihoods.
