Enter through the Magnesia Gate and begin a slow, downhill walk with your guide into the ruins of this Roman provincial capital. Your route takes you past the Odeum, the Celsus Library, the Temple of Hadrian, the Fountain of Trajan and the Great Theater. The Theater had seating for 25,000, was the site where St. Paul preached to the Ephesians, and is used today for a local spring festival. From Kusadasi, you travel north to Ephesus, passing the Byzantine fortress at Selcuk, the ruins of the Temple of Artemis and St. John’s Basilica. After touring Ephesus, return to Kusadasi.
Note: Ephesus requires walking long distances over uneven surfaces.
