    Stop At: Meryemana (The Virgin Mary's House), Selcuk 35100 Turkey

    Thought to be the house of Mary, the mother of Jesus, until her death, the ancient ruins of Meryemana (The Virgin Mary's House) is now a shrine for Catholics. Travelers on a pilgrimage often make the small stone house a stopping point. Inside the chapel is an altar beside a large statue of the Virgin Mary. As you look to your right you will see the smaller room where Mary is thought to have slept. Outside the shrine is a beautiful fountain, which many believe has spiritual healing powers. Before you go, it is traditional to leave a prayer in the "wishing wall." To visit Meryemana (The Virgin Mary's House) and other attractions in Selcuk, use our Selcuk trip

    Stop At: The Temple of Artemis, Ataturk, Park Ici Yolu No:12, Selcuk Turkey

    A single column and some stone fragments are all that's left of The Temple of Artemis, the site of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The spot where the temple stood was recognized for its sanctity by numerous civilizations, including the Lydians, the Greeks, and the Romans. In fact, it was one of the most popular pilgrimage sites of Antiquity. Legend has it that the Amazons build the earliest temple here, as they worshipped Artemis as their chief deity. Throughout the centuries the temple was destroyed and rebuilt many times before finally being ransacked by the Goths in 268 CE; today, little remains of the original temple. Admission to the site is free. Add The Temple of Artemis to your Selcuk travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Selcuk day trip

    Pass By: Kusadasi, Kusadasi, Turkish Aegean Coast

    Unreservedly dedicated to tourism, Kusadasi sits on the Aegean coastline and acts as a gateway to the ancient city of Ephesus, one of the country's major Greco-Roman archaeological sites. Nearly half a million people vacation here at the height of tourist season, most of them sun-starved visitors from northern Europe's colder countries. The hills surrounding the city teem with big hotels and luxury resorts, but Kusadasi itself remains a manageable city, easily explored on foot. The walkable town center features the remains of the old city walls and a 17th-century mosque built on the orders of the legendary Mehmed Pasha. Kusadasi also makes a good base for trips to the nearby Greek island of Samos.

    Bargain for imitation designer clothes and genuine leather products at Kuşadası Market. Apart from "genuine fakes," the market offers fresh fruits and vegetables, cosmetics, and some houseware. Take the opportunity to watch goldsmiths and artisans at work here. To ensure that you're getting a fair deal, try to get the price down to a third of the original offer. Be cautious when buying handmade jewelry, as some of these items also feature imitation stones but with "designer" prices.
