After about 45 minutes, continue to Ephesus, the ancient Roman city that was at its peak between 1 AD and 2 AD and home to more than 250,000 people. Your guide takes you on a walking tour of the ancient site, which is considered the most complete Greco-Roman classical city excavation in the world.

Have a few hours to take in the wonders of Ephesus, have a lunch of traditional Turkish cuisine in the garden of a local handicrafts center. Then learn about carpet weaving before continuing to your final stop, the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
