Ports: Kusadasi (Ephesus) Port

Kusadasi

Kusadasi is located within a beautiful bay on Turkey’s magnificent Aegean coast, just a short distance from some of the country’s most captivating ancient ruins. Its modern harbor area welcomes countless cruise ships every year and is within walking distance of excellent shopping, as well as the fortified island, Goveroin Ada (Pigeon Island), which can be explored via a footbridge. Visit its Byzantine castle and museum, and wander through the remains of its ancient buildings.

One of the main highlights of any Kusadasi shore excursion is visiting one of the best preserved ancient cities in the world - Ephesus. It lies just over 10 miles from Kusadasi’s harbor in the small village of Selcuk and half day excursions will give you plenty of time to wander its ancient ruins on a guided tour, visit its intriguing museum, and explore its famed Terrace Houses. Or for those with more time, combine a visit to the ancient city of Ephesus with a shore excursion to explore the nearby Basilica of St John, House of the Virgin Mary and the Temple of Artemis.

For those interested in the Greek history of the region, why not take a shore excursion from Kusadasi to the small village of Sirince which was settled when Ephesus was abandoned in the 15th century, or head to the ancient towns of Priene, Miletos or Didyma, each with their own captivating stories to tell.

History lovers will be enchanted by the shore excursions we have available from Kusadasi, but if you don’t find what you are looking for, please contact us directly to create a customized itinerary.
