All very well. Unfortunately we couldn't get down in Milos because of the wind. The Athens hotel is not in the best location. It would be better if the hotel were in Plaka.

NAVIGATING TO TURKEY - WELCOME TO KUSADASI

At 08:00 hrs, after a quiet night of navigation, you will wake up on the Turkish coast where Kusadasi is located, from where the visit to the ancient city of Ephesus begins. Ephesus is one of the twelve Ionian cities, an important cultural, religious and commercial center of antiquity visited by San Paul, Marco Antonio, and Cleopatra, among others.

This excursion is a journey through time, particularly in the golden age, which has shaped the fundamental center of commerce and spirituality. Built 3,000 years ago, Ephesus formed the history of Greek, Turkish and Christian civilizations, from its privileged location, chosen by the Oracle of Delphi. A place of pilgrimage, due to its proximity to the Temple of Artemis (one of the 7 Wonders of the World) and the presence of important Christian figures within the city walls.

Ephesus is also one of the largest Roman archeological sites in the Mediterranean. The splendor of its golden age is visible through its exceptionally well-preserved streets and ruins. While you explore this UNESCO World Heritage site, you will have the opportunity to breathe in the centuries of cultural effervescence, visible in the Ephesus Agora, the Odeon, the Houses of the Patricians, the beautiful Temple of Hadrian and the amazing Library of Celso. You will also have the opportunity to negotiate and buy local merchandise such as carpets, leather goods, souvenirs, etc.

At 7:00 p.m. the cruise will sail to continue navigation.
