We had a light breakfast at the Colonnade. Wandering down the gangway, I was surprised to find that our excursion included only nine people and the transportation was a sprinter rather than a bus.
The first stop was the the Basilica of St John. St. John was buried in the Basilica. From there, you can see a single column marking The Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World..
The second stop was the The House of the Virgin Mary. It is believed that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was taken to this stone house by Saint John and lived there for the last years of her life.
The third stop was the Romain city of Ephesus. The ruins were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We did a guided walking tour that included terrace houses. We had an private lunch on the Harbor Road.
For the fhird day in a row, we had a guide. Unfortunately, this guide was a little harder to understand than the first two.
We had a early buffet dinner in the Colonnade. It was a zoo. Everyone was getting an early dinner in order to take off for the complimentary evening excursion.
We finished the day with an excursion back to Ephesus. Almost everyone on the ship caught buses back to the site. Seabourn had a classic music concert set up in front of the Great Theater. After the concert, we jumped on the first bus back to the ship.
We crashed about 10:30 pm.
