Driving from the pier through the countryside along a hilly drive, you will arrive at the House of Virgin Mary where the Blessed Virgin is reputed to have spent the last years of her life. The site was made famous by the travels of Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II. in November of 2006. Pope Benedictus the 16th paid an official visit to the House of the Virgin Mary in 2007. Outside is the Fountain of Our Lady, providing the faithful water from the holy foundation.

From there, a short drive will take you to the entrance to ancient city of Ephesus that was built on a small hill. Once you enter the Open Air Archeological Museum of Ephesus and pass by the Magnesia gate, you will enter the administrative section of ancient Ephesus. The guided walking tour will take you through one of the most magnificent excavations in the world. See the Odeon, the Fountain of Trajan, the steam baths of Scholastika, temple of Hadrian and the impressive library of Celsius. The library is adorned with columns and statues. The Grand Theater, where St. Paul preached, is one of the largest theaters in antiquity with a capacity of 24,000 seats.

You will also visit the Terrace Houses which are located on the slopes of Bulbul Mountain, opposite the Hadrian Temple. Also called "the houses of rich", they were built for the important and wealthy people of Ephesus, as only rich people could afford such houses. The terrace houses are a Museum inside Ephesus with great engraving, mosaics, sections, floors, representing the life style of the rich Ephesians. You will visit the inner sections of these houses in which the excavations still continue. The most ancient of the houses were built in the first century BC, and most of the houses were restored in the second century AD.

The houses seemed plain from outside, but inside they were constructed with the highest standards for their day. They were decorated with mosaics and frescoes, and they had interior courtyards in the center, with open ceiling. To give you an idea about the quality of life in Ephesus, the houses both had cold and hot water. Once all visits are over you will return to your private car through the Arcadian way, where Mark Anthony and Cleopatra once rode in procession. Once the visits are concluded, the tour will proceed to Kusadasi.
