The Archeological site of Ephesus is the largest collection of Roman ruins in the eastern Mediterranean. Only an estimated 15% has been excavated but we can still learn a lot about this once grand city. We’ll stop at the Library of Celsus that was built in 125 AD and held over 12,000 scrolls and we’ll visit the Basilica of St. John, which is said to be the apostle’s burial site.

The magnificent Temple of Artemia also once stood here in Ephesus. One of the Wonders of the Ancient World, it featured over 100 marble pillars and took over 120 years to built. Today, our shore excursion visits the site of this once grand structure.

At the end of Marble Avenue is the largest and best preserved theatre in the Greco-Roman world, the Great Theatre. It’s a dramatic sight with a seating capacity of 24,000 and was used for gladiator fights and philosophical discussions, as well as concerts and plays.
