After meeting at the designated times and places in Izmir we start our 2,5 hour journey to Karacasu / Geyre village. You should bring your own breakfast with you to have during the journey as we will not be giving a breakfast break on the way. Here we will park our vehicle in the parking lot and get on a tractor’s trailer for a 1 minute ride to the gate of Aphrodisias – the most beautiful ancient city of Turkey. There are many surprises awaiting us here: The great photographer Ara Güler’s photograph exhibition on the discovery and introduction of Aphrodisias; the museum housing numerous magnificent statues found in the city; the memories of archaeologist Kenan Erim who dedicated 30 years of his life to this ancient city and the love story between him and the city itself; a magnificent geography, and beautiful examples of marble architecture and sculpture; Turkey’s best preserved Roman Period stadium with a 30 thousand seating capacity, Temple of Aphrodite and much more… Come, see, and be charmed…
After visiting the city and museum of Aphrodisias we will drive to an authentic local restaurant in the village of Geyre where we will get the chance of tasting some local dishes of the area. Finally we will drive back to Izmir watching the Meander River and Babadağ. We should be back in Izmir at approximately 6.30 – 7 PM.
