Ephesus , Horse Riding
Upon your arrival at the pier meet with your guide outside the sliding doors of the custom and proceed together to the awaiting vehicle. Driving along the main boulevard of the city we follow a scenic drive to reach the Ancient city of Ephesus. In the course of the excavations, which have now lasted over a century, only ten percent of the ancient city of Ephesus has been unearthed. And yet, Ephesus is considered one of the great outdoor museums of Turkey and one of the biggest and well preserved from all around the world! Excavations will go on for many years together with restoration works allowing us to imagine its beauty. Entering the site from the Upper Gate we brave the original marble street visiting the most important structures of the ancient city, receiving in same time a special assistance from your guide. Ephesus site it’s a great outdoor museum for children where they can be pictured with the statues and monuments, fake gladiator fights in the theatres, observe the archeologist on work, and most, challenge their imagination! As well for fun, feed the cats of Ephesus.
