Ephesus, once a bustling metropolis of the ancient world, stands before us as a testament to the beauty and artistry of our shared history. As we walk upon the same roads that philosophers such as Heraclitus, disciples such as Saint John the Evangelist, Apostles such as Saint Paul, and emperors such as Marc Antony and Cleopatra walked millennia ago, we will have a tour that transcends the boundaries of time and space. I spent significant time in my life on archaeology studies and on the Bible. I hope my studies, unique way of touring, and storytelling style will help you to enjoy the best of Ephesus.
Ephesus was a nexus of cultures, a center of trade between Asia and Europe, and a melting pot of beliefs of the ancient world such as Christianity, Judaism, and Paganism. Today, Ephesus’ perfectly preserved ruins offer us a glimpse into the daily lives, beliefs, and aspirations of the people who once called this place home. Monuments built by the people of Ephesus who were chasing immortality will fascinate you.
”No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river, and he’s not the same man.”Heraclitus of Ephesus
