Kusadasi Walking Tour
Travelers often think of Kusadasi as a gateway to the ancient Greek city of Ephesus, one of the top attractions in Turkey. But for travelers willing to take a closer look at the town, there's a treasure trove of activities and sights. On this Kusadasi walking tour, you'll discover the depth of this town and get lost in its culture and history.
After meeting your guide at the port, you'll take a brief waterfront walk toward Pigeon Island. On this island, you'll see the Byzantine Castle up close. Resting on sharp rocks, the castle once served as a checkpoint for battles. Since then, its violent history has given way to calmer surroundings; you'll now find cafes, restaurants and other charming venues nearby.
During this tour, you'll also get to explore the city center and admire local art at the Ibramaki Art Gallery, a historic structure originally built as a hospital. Other fun experiences on this tour include a Turkish bath and lunch, the latter of which is comprised of area fare to give you a true taste of the town. When you do make your way back to the meeting point, you can expect to pass by mosques and other beautiful structures. At the end of the tour, you can choose to remain downtown or return to the ship (just a stone's throw away). Book this Kusadasi tour today for a memorable experience in Turkey.
