Private Ephesus Tours from Port of Izmir

Izmir, one of Turkey's biggest port and 3rd biggest City in Turkey and the population is approx 4 million. Ephesus was an ancient Ionian Greek city; its ruins lie near the modern Town of Selcuk and approx 1 hour drive from Port of Izmir in Turkey. It was situated south of the Cayster River, and was the site of the Temple of Artemis. Traditionally founded by the Carians, it was one of the 12 Ionian Cities and was involved in the Persian and Peloponnesian wars. It was taken by Alexander the Great c.334 BC and prospered throughout the Hellenistic period. It passed to Rome in 133 BC; under Augustus it became the capital of the Roman province of Asia. It was an early seat of Christianity, visited by St. Paul, and the recipient of the Epistle to the Ephesians. The Goths destroyed the city and temple in AD 262; neither ever recovered. There are extensively excavated ruins at the modern site.
