First we head to Ephesus one of the best preserved ancient ruins in the world. A visit to Ephesus – once the commercial centre of the ancient world – is a highlight of any visit to Turkey. The city, whose wealth and patronage supported its splendid architectural program, was dedicated to the goddess Artemis. Artemis was the virgin goddess of nature, and protectress of women in childbirth. The enormous Temple of Artemis, once considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and rebuilt several times, dates in its latest form from the third century B.C. In 263 AD., the temple was sacked and destroyed during the invasion of the Goths. The tour of the ruins also includes a theatre, gymnasium, agora and baths, as well as the Library of Celsus.
