If you are going to travel to Turkey but do not have much time and do not want to miss Ephesus and Pamukkale, with this itinerary we have resolved this matter for you. 

Drive from Izmir airport to Ephesus.

Trip to Ephesus

We look for you from the hotel in Istanbul around 5:30 am for the flight leaving at 7:00 am in Istanbul and arriving at around 8:00 am in Izmır (we can travel with few belongings because we will return the same day).

Landing in Izmir, our guide greets us on the way out with our driver. We take our car (van, minibus or bus) and we will take the road for 70 km to Ephesus.

Ephesus is a  museum and site that is very well preserved, where we have the ruins belonging to the Greco-Roman period. In this museum, we made a walk among the ruins of this ancient city.

We make a monitored visit with the company of our private guide. The visit lasts 1h30.

We go to the house of Mary which is 8 km away from Ephesus. This is the house in which Mary is said to have lived the end of her life. Accompanied by St. John the Evangelist, Mary was taken to Ephesus from Jerusalem. During this visit there is the custom of placing a request on the wall.

So prepare your order now! In the house, there is also a source considered sacred, in which it is possible to drink water, or even save a little to take home, to your family or friends. Get ready for this meeting!


Trip to Pamukkale:

After we finish both visits, we can have lunch in the city of Selçuk. Have a quick lunch, then travel to Pamukkale which is 190 km away. The road is very good and quiet.

We will travel to Pamukkale with our car and the guide company.

Arriving in Pamukkale, we go straight to the tourist site of Pamukkale, where are the pools of thermal water and the ruins of Hierapólis.

The pools are unique in the world. On this visit, it is possible to walk in the pools and even get wet. But it is not possible to bathe because the pools are races.

The most interesting moment in this parade is  the martyrdom of St. Philip, the apostle of Jesus Christ who took refuge in the city and after inviting people to believe in the Christ, was punished by the pagans and was murdered by stoning.

Later the own Roman empire built a martyrdom in homage to St. Philip, an octagonal temple.

We will have a typical lunch in the region with exotic dishes composed of vegetables and vegetables from the region.

Around 5:00 p.m., we go straight to Denizli Airport to catch the flight. This airport is 90 km away from Pamukkale. The flight leaves at 7:30 p.m. and arrives in Istanbul at 8:40 p.m.
