Ephesus Ruins – Terrace Houses & St John Basilica Tour
Ephesus Ancient City: Enter through the periclase Gate and begin a slow, downhill walk with your guide into the ruins of this Roman capital. Your route takes you past the Odeon, the Celsus Library, the Temple of Hadrian, the Fountain of Trajan and the nice Theater. The theater had to seat for 24,000, which was the site wherever it’s believed St. Paul preached to the Ephesians, and is used today for a neighborhood spring pageant.
The Terrace Houses: Ephesus Terrace Houses are settled on the slopes of bulbul Mountain, opposite the Hadrian Temple. Also known as “the houses of rich”, these houses were for the vital and loaded people of Ephesus, as only made individuals might afford such homes.
Basilica of St.John: Built by the Emperor Justinian over the grave of St. John the Apostle, the Basilica, now in ruins, once rivaled St. Sophia in size. See the remaining graceful columns and mosaics of the Basilica as you take within the panorama of the agricultural Selcuk countryside and therefore the ruins of The Temple of Artemis.
