We will start a half day Ephesus tour by visiting Ancient city of Ephesus. Our first stop is ancient city of Ephesus . You will see one of the most magnificent excavations in the world. Magnificent  Grand Theater, where Saint Paul preached, is the largest theater is antiquity with capacity of  24.000 seats.

We will visit the Terrace Houses, containing handsome frescoes from the 2nd century CE, which extend up the hill. They once housed the wealthier and more prominent families of the city, who lavished the interiors with superbly preserved frescoes and mosaics. The decor and furnishings of the houses have provided some interesting informations about the life style of Ephesian elite during the Roman and early Byzantine periods.

Inevitably, the houses have been compared with smilar buildings found in the parts of the Roman Empire, particularly with the1C villas of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The consensus is that the Ephesians houses are in no way inferior to these.
