Day 5 - Izmir / Ephesus / Pamukkale (B,L,D)

After  breakfast we will proceed to the vast ruins of the ancient city of Ephesus.  Our first stop will be at the Basilica of St.John, who came here with the Virgin Mary and wrote his Gospel. Once in the ancient city itself we will explore this ancient Roman city and visit the Library of Celcius, Temple of Hadrian, the Theatre and Odeon. We will leave the ruins to drive the short distance to  the House of the Virgin Mary, a site that includes a house and garden and the spot where she is believed to have spent her last years. After lunch we continue to Pamukkale, "the Cotton Castle" with its snow-white terraces formed by thermal waters cascading down the hillside. After enjoying our visit to this site of natural beauty we go the the adjacent ruins of antique Hierapolis with its famous Necropolis,  Basilica, Theatre and Plutonium.  We will dine and spend the night at our hotel in Pamukkale.
