Description

Are you ready to travel back in time and walk the streets of one of the most important cities from the 2nd century BC? Let us make it happen on this live-streamed online experience, where we will together explore the millennia-old ruins of Ephesus, the focal trade centre of the ancient world and an important religious centre of early Christianity. One of the best-preserved ancient cities in the world, it today serves as one of Turkey's most fascinating tourist destinations.
We will start our virtual tour at the upper gate of Ephesus, where a Hammam or public bath was once located for travellers to bathe in before entering the city. Exploring the terrace houses in the luxury complex of the city where the nobles used to once live, we will make our way to admire the grand ancient parliament building.

Visit an ancient hospital where Nike's famous symbol is said to have originated, before reaching the centre of the city. Here, marvel at the ancient bath complex, fountain, and the famous Hadrian temple as I tell you some deeply interesting and occasionally fun facts about them. You just might see the world's first public toilet here!

For the final leg of our tour, we will make our way to the storied Library of Celsus - the third largest library in the world, and explore the ancient shopping centre of Ephesus - the first "shopping mall" in history! We will then make our way to the grand theatre located near the harbour, where the famed gladiator fights once used to take place.

I look forward to seeing you on this one-hour tour, which will allow you to explore some of the best examples of classical Greek and Roman architecture and opulence. Indeed, the magnificent paved streets, marble squares, baths, and monumental ruins of Ephesus are bound to leave you absolutely awe-struck!

Bilge Mencük

I started serving as a tourist guide in Istanbul 10 years ago after I graduated from university with a degree in Tourism Guidance. Now you will find me travelling all-around tourist & historical sites of Turkey as a tour guide. This is the top point as a tour guide because one has to know each historical place and its story, mythology, and formal information.
Aside from guiding, I try to contribute to the tourism industry by promoting Turkey with its cultural, religious, and historical heritage.
Join me on this virtual tour, and I will share my experiences and information that l have come in possession of, over the course of my career and my life here in Turkey. I look forward to hosting you soon!
