Shore Excursion Turkey

phpThumb_generated_thumbnailShore Excursion Turkey The ruins of Ephesus are a popular tourist attraction on the west coast. The city of Ephesus was once famed for the Temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, which was destroyed by a mob led by the archbishop of Constantinople in 401 AD. Some of the structures can still be seen however including the Great Theater and the Library of Celsus. Boat Trips From Kusadasi The library was built around 125 AD to store 12,000 scrolls and to serve as a monumental tomb for Celsus, the governor of Asia. The façade was carefully reconstructed in the 1970s to its present splendid state from the original pieces.

With its unique mix of the exotic and the familiar, visiting Turkey can be a mesmerizing experience. Kusadasi Day Trips More than the “bridge between East and West” of tourist-brochure cliché, the country combines influences from the Middle East and the Mediterranean, the Balkans and central Asia. Invaded and settled from every direction since the start of recorded history, its contradictions and fascinations persist. Mosques coexist with churches, Roman theatres and temples crumble not far from ancient Hittite cities and dervish ceremonies or gypsy festivals are as much a part of the social landscape as classical music concerts or avidly attended football matches. Shore Excursion Turkey

Ephesus Tours

Ephesus-Ancient21Ephesus Tours In spite of official efforts to enforce a uniform Turkish identity, the population is remarkably heterogeneous. When the Ottoman Empire imploded, large numbers of Muslim Slavs, Kurds, Greeks, Albanians, Crimean Tatars, Azeris, Daghestanlis, Abkhazians and Circassians – to name only the most numerous non-Turkic groups – streamed into Anatolia, the safest refuge in an age of anti-Ottoman nationalism. This process has continued in recent years from formerly Soviet or Eastern Bloc territories, so that the diversity endures, constituting one of the surprises of travel in Turkey. Another obvious aspect is the youthfulness of the country: more than half the population is under 30, something borne out in the legions of young people working in coastal resorts, and the shoals of school kids surging through city streets. Kusadasi Port Tours This brings with it a palpable dynamism but also its fair share of problems, not least high youth unemployment and disparate educational opportunities.  Ephesus Day Tour

Fethiye Boat Cruise

perm-poon-sub-boat-tripsFethiye Boat Cruise The major reason for visiting Kusadasi: eyeballing the vast ruins of Ephesus, the ancient Greek city. Kusadasi became a major port — claiming 250,000 residents during the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D. — in the Roman Empire. About 27-square-miles of awesome, excavated Boat Rental Turkey ruins lure visitors past houses, shops, a tavern, a bordello, columns, and even to the toilets, whose rows of cutouts in long marble slabs above mosaic floors provided businessmen places to socialize.

The iconic façade of the library of Celsus, completed about 125 A.D., displays intricately carved columns and pediments. The library could store 12,000 papyrus scrolls in niches, read through slots. Despite earlier destruction, it was rebuilt in the 20th century. A Jewish menorah carved into one of the library’s steps attests to a Jewish community’s existence. Boat Trips From Kusadasi

The more recently excavated, multi-level, Terrace Houses — dating from the 1st century B.C. — demonstrate how wealthy Ephesians lived in homes decorated with mosaics and vivid frescoes. The Ephesus Museum showcases statues of leaders and 50,000 works, including medical instruments and jewelry.

Kusadasi is a resort town for locals, and repeat visitors will find much of interest beyond Ephesus. The port, Scala Nuova, is right in town. Archaeology addicts find other excavated sites close by as well. Christian and Muslim pilgrims flock to the stone house where many believe the Virgin Mary stayed. You can also visit the Basilica of St. John, where the saint is buried. Fethiye Boat Cruise

The Ephesus Half Day Tours contest is a good-natured way to highlight worthy travel destinations. While I appreciate the splendor and beauty of natural wonders, I do hope the winner celebrates the wonders of human ingenuity and craftsmanship.
