Extend your Israel tour with a few days in Turkey, following in the footsteps of the Apostles and early Christianity…
Visit the city of Ephesus, one of the seven churches of Asia cited in the Book of Revelation. The city was an important center for early Christianity; Paul lived here and worked in the Christian congregation, organizing missionary activities. Today you can see the remains of the Library of Celsus, the theater and the Temple of Artemis (Diana).
Erosion shaped the incredible fairy tale landscape of the Göreme valley, where Cappadocia is located, but human hands performed equally incredible works here, carving an incredible chamber and tunnel complex into the soft rock. Beginning in the fourth century A.D., an urbanized—but underground—cultural landscape was created, containing several underground cities, largely used by early Christians as hiding places before Christianity became an accepted religion.
