    What to Expect
    1 day: Ephesus and Virgin Mary's House (B, D) 3 star hotel in Pamukkale
    In the early morning, you will leave the hotel heading to the Mugla city. Here we will stop for a breakfast. Exploring the city of Ephesus we will start from the administrative part reserved for Roman politics. This is where the Odeon (parliament) remains, an Agora for meetings and political rallies or ancient hospital. While walking down the marble streets which were floodlit in ancient times we will get to the public part. This is where the entertainments were used, among the others in Roman baths, public house or latrines. You will enter the huge Celsius library, which is at the same time a tomb of the ruler. 
    At the end of the trip around the city there is a huge Roman theater. We will go on the tribunes to check out its acoustics. After exploring Ephesus we will head to the restaurant for a lunch (on your expense).
    After the meal we will head to the Selcuk city, passing by the remains of St. John Basilica with his tomb, Temple of Artemis, and Middle-age fortress. By the time we will stop for a while in Turkish jewellery workshop. Ephesus is also the last place of living of Mother of God. Everyone interested will be able to visit her house – sanctuary on their own expense. The rest of the group in that time will be able to visit the attractions of the city of Selcuk. 
    Jump on your bus and continue the trip straight to the hotel To enjoy dinner and a relaxing evening.
    2 day: Pamukkale and Hierapolis (B)
    You will start your day with breakfast in the hotel and just 5 min after you leave hotel you will be at the gates of Hierapolis. Hierapolis was a health resort during Roman times. Roman baths, basilica, gymnasium, “column” street and ancient necropolis, where you will find over 1000 ancient sarcophaguses are good preserved. The beautiful theatre on a hill its worth visiting as well . 
    However, Pamukkale is mainly a white travertines  listed by the UNESCO. You will be able to penetrate them wading in thermal water flooding down the travertines. It will surely be a great massage and relief for tired feet. If you want to try the exact treatment of Pamukkale waters – use a bubble (champagne) bath in Cleopatra pool (with additional fee). Health-bringing water cures among others: obesity, rheumatism, asthma and skin diseases, and most important brings back the fresh, young look. They say that, that Pamukkale was the secret of the beauty of the great seductress – Cleopatra.
    After sightseeing and bathes, you will visit onyx stone workshop and carpet factory in which many Turks are specialized since centuries. Don’t forget about the tradition of bargaining over the price!  The way back will lead you again through Taurus mountains and you will be in Fethiye around 7:00 pm.
