This huge site, one of the best preserved ancient cities in the Aegean, will take most of the day to see every part in detail. It is easily approached by road from SelĂ§uk, or by public transport from Kusadasi. Or if you prefer join a guided tour. A truly magical tour and well worth a visit.
The Virgin Mary House
Beyond Ephesus and on Bulbul Dag (mountain), 8km southwest of Selcuk, the monument is thought by some to be where the Virgin Mary died, and is visited by Christian and Muslim pilgrims from around the world. The small stone house is now a chapel, and probably dates back to the 4th century, although the foundations are thought to be 1st century. You may wish to attend Sunday mass or combine the day with a visit to nearby Ephesus.
Pamukkale is an extraordinary natural wonder. The calcium waters rise from the ground at a temperature of 35 C and tumble down the mountain from a height of 100 meters, forming a myriad of pools. Cream-colored stalactites are formed as the water overflows from the pools, creating a breathtaking sight unequalled in the world. Allow a full day for this tour and also visit the nearby Roman baths named Cleopatraâ€™s pool and submerge yourself in the natural spring waters.
A magical nearby hillside village featuring local wine tasting and the chance to observe the local craft of lace making. Visit the earliest Christian churches in the region and enjoy the national drink Cay; Turkish tea a truly authentic village
Istanbul Three Day Tour
A tour of a life time leaving Kusadasi in the early hours of the morning on an air conditioned coach. By road the tour takes in Troy, Galiope. Take a ferry ride across the Bosporus and enjoy a grand tour of all of Istanbulâ€™s famous sites including St Sophia, The Blue Mosque and the Topakai Palace.
The Turkish bath or hamam is an atmospheric world all its own in the midst of the modern bustling city. Everyone who sets foot in here surrenders to the water in a voluntary form of captivity, for the process of purification of not just the body but also the soul. Highly recommended to visit at the start of your holiday therefore, maximizing the outcome of a good suntan.
Be John Wayne for day and enjoy the Trek across Pamacak woods and sea front, take your horse for a â€śCool offâ€ť, into the sea and gallop along the shore, a full day out.
Kusadasi is an ideal destination for a family or for divers who have a non-diving partner, or for those who want to try diving for the first time. It makes a great place to combine diving with a normal holiday and package deals tend to be very reasonably priced. Try dives, boat dives and PADI courses available.
Daily Boat trip
Since 1994 Hasan and Rianna Kalkan have organized day trips on the fabulous Gulet named Amores.1. A gullet is a traditional Turkish wooden sailing boat which have either 1 or 2 masts. The Amores.1 is a classic model with 2 masts. On the front deck we have 4 inch white leather mattresses where you can comfortably lie down to get a beautiful tan. At the rear of the boat we have a semi-circle white leather seat where you can sit down in the shade and enjoy the beautiful scenery with a cool drink. During the day we visit 5 blue lagoons where you will get the chance to swim, fish or snorkel. Fishing lines and snorkel equipment are on board for use all day free of charge. In the early afternoon we serve an open buffet lunch and later in the day we give fresh fruit, there is no extra charge for any of the drinks served.
Kusadasi is lucky to be able to offer a selection of water parksâ€™ â€śAda land & Dolphin Sea Centreâ€ť, and â€śAqua Fantasyâ€ť, glide down the lazy river or enjoy the roller coaster slides, something for everyone.
No elephants or lions just a good treck through the real Turkey, cross country through the local villages and mountain areas. A full day out for all the family starting in the morning and finishing at the end of the day dusty and tiered but exhilarated.
