Our Shore2Shore Excursions guide/representative will meet you at the Port  where we board an air-conditioned coach.

During the journey of approximately one hour and a half,  we will have an introduction to the ancient history of Ephesus.

Throughout our visit, discover the unforgettable riches of Ephesus, ancient capital of Asia Minor and main port of Mediterranean.

Admire the Agora, the Temple of Hadrian and the magnificent Celsius Library.

Return to the bus to continue our itinerary to one of the places most loved by Christianity and venerated by believers as the place where the Virgin Mary dedicated the last years of her life to retreat and prayer.

 

Within the green of the Bulbul mountain, the humble little house was forgotten until 1892, when it was declared a sacred place of pilgrimage. On the house's foundations, there is today a small stone church, which has become famous for the numerous trips of prayer made by Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II.

We will then return to the Port  so you can re-join your ship for onward passage to your next port of call.  

We trust you had a wonderful day with us and we shall look forward to seeing you again soon.  

Bon Voyage!!
