Day Trip from Kusadasi Port to Sirince Village, Ephesus Ruins, Temple of Artemis

This experience is a private tour from Kusadasi port and hotels in Kusadasi. You’ll explore the Kusadasi’s cultural and historical sights on this tour. If walls could talk, the ruins of Ephesus would have some stories to tell. Back in the 1st century BC, this city was one of powerhouses of the Mediterranean. You’ll head to the village of Sirince. It’s a peaceful little place that hugs the hillside and is famous for its homemade wines and Gözleme – griddle bread with various fillings. After a short wine-tasting session you’ll have some time to wander round this pretty village and browse its souvenir stalls and cobblestone laneways where village women sell their colourful handiwork. And then, you’ll visit the place where the Temple of Artemis once stood. This ancient religious house is counted as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. These days, it pales in comparison to the emblem of Ephesus – the Library of Celcus, which was once one of the grandest libraries of antiquity.
