*** Pamukkale & Ephesus - 3 days (from Bodrum)***

(Departs everyday!)


Day 1 - Bodrum to Pamukkale - (L/D)
At 10:00 AM, we will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to the bus station for your 11:00 AM departure to Pamukkale (arriving at about 3:00 PM).
You'll check-in the hotel, and enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure.
Overnight in Pamukkale

Day 2 - Pamukkale to Kusadasi - (B/L/D)
Our drive will take us through a rich agricultural area, teeming with cotton fields, fruit orchards, and thermal springs.
* Pamukkale ("cotton castle" in Turkish) is the result of limestone formations created over thousands of years. Warm, calcium-rich mineral water from nearby thermal hot springs flowed over these cliffs and, as these waters cooled, they deposited the calcium that we see today.
* Hierapolis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was founded as an ancient healing care center in 190 BC, taking advantage of the mineral waters. It was one of the most important intellectual, artistic, religious and commercial centers of the Roman Empire. Over time, the city hosted large numbers of both Jewish and Christian residents.
After the tour, we'll depart Pamukkale for our 2 1/2 hour drive to Kusadasi. After arrival, you'll check into the hotel and have the rest of evening free.
Overnight in Kusadasi

Day 3 - Kusadasi to Bodrum - (B/L)
After breakfast, we will take you on a full day tour of Ephesus, Temple of Artemis and the House of the Virgin Mary.
Sites you’ll see today:
* The Temple of Artemis is situated in serene countryside celebrates the Greek goddess Artemis, the virginal huntress and twin of Apollo, who supplanted the Titan Selene as goddess of the Moon.  This temple, known as Artemision in Greek times, was the largest of its kind at the world. Of the Olympian goddesses who inherited aspects of the Great Goddess of Crete, Athene was more honored than Artemis at Athens. At Ephesus, a goddess with whom the Greeks associated with Artemis was passionately venerated in an archaic, pre-Hellenic cult image that was carved of wood, and kept decorated with jewelry.
* Ephesus is the best-preserved classical cities from ancient times, and was inhabited by Greeks, Macedonians, Romans and Turks. St. Paul lived here circa 60 AD, when it was at its most populated at 250,000.  During your visit, you’ll walk its stony boulevards, stand in the grand theatre, marvel at the beauty of the Celsus Library, the agora, as well as the baths, giving you the unique chance to get up-close-and-personal with history by literally being able to walk into it.
Ephesus was one of the seven churches of Asia that are cited in the Book of Revelation. The Gospel of John may have been written here. The city was the site of several 5th century Ecumenical Councils. It is also the site of a large gladiators' graveyard.
* The House of the Virgin Mary, (Turkish: Meryemana Evi), high on a hill overlooking the town of Selcuk, is where it is believed that St. Mary came to live with St. John the Baptist in the later years of her life.  Masses are held here on Sundays.
After the tour we will transfer you back to Bodrum, marking the end of the program.

We look forward to seeing you on a future trip!
