DAY 1: ISTANBUL / IZMIR / PERGAMON / TIATIRA / IZMIR  (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner )  

Breakfast at the hotel. Transfer to the airport to take the plane to Izmir. Arrival in Izmir. We travel to Pergamum which is one of the sites of the Seven Churches (Rev. 1: 11; 2: 12). Here we explore the impressive Acropolis, the steepest theater in the world, the Asclepion, the famous medical center of the classical era, we admire the Altar of Zeus, mentioned in the Throne of Satan, in the book of Revelation, the marble of the columns of the Temple of Trajan and the library that was one of the most important in the world and was a strong rival of the Library of Alexandria in Egypt. Its volume is estimated at more than 200,000. Here the invention of parchment was inspired. We also visit the Red Basilica (Church of San Juan). We continue to Thyatira, now called Akhisar, another of the Seven Churches (Rev. 1:11; 2: 18-24; Acts. 16:14) a city famous for its purple hues. We visited the ruins of the basilica and some architectural remains of the Roman period. Before checking in at the Izmir hotel, we enjoyed a panoramic tour of Izmir, the third largest city in Turkey and another one of the sites of the Seven Churches (Rev. 2: 12-17). Izmir is a city marked by a bloody history of trade and war. We ascend to Monte Pagus, where we visit the citadel of Lysimachos, commander of Alexander the Great, erected in the fourth century BC. We will also see the Clock Tower. Dinner and overnight at the hotel.

DAY 2 IZMIR / SARDES / PHILADELPHIA / LAODICEA / HIERAPOLIS / PAMUKKALE (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner )  

Breakfast at the hotel. We leave early in the morning to one of the most picturesque areas of the Seven Churches (Rev. 1:11; 3: 1-4). Sardis was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Lydia in the sixth century BC, portrayed as an agonizing church. We visited the great Temple of Artemis and the Temple of Cybele, which became a Byzantine Church. We also visited the old Lycian houses, the restored gymnasium and the reconstructed Synagogue. We will also see the last meters of the Royal Persian Way from Susa to Sardis, built by Cyrus the Great and the golden river of Pactolos. We continued our journey to Philadelphia, now called Alaşehir, another city of the Seven Churches (Rev. 1:11; 3: 7), and the only church that was not censored. There we will see the remains of the Byzantine basilica built in brick, with a large arch and frescoes of the eleventh century. We travel to the city of Hierapolis, current Pamukkale, the white "cotton castle" where hot mineral water rises from the earth and falls in the form of waterfalls over pools, channels and stalactites. The therapeutic waters were found by the founders of Hierapolis and Laodicea in 190 BC. In the Hierapolis (Col. 4:13) we visited the Martyrdom of the Apostle Philip where he was mortified during the persecutions of the Domitian. We follow Laodicea (now Denizli), another of the Seven Churches (Rev. 1:11; 3:14; Col. 2: 1; 4: 13-16). We will visit the old theater, remains of the Basilica and the ancient stone water pipes. We visited the Domitian gate, the Arcadia road, the 2nd century AD theater, the Nymphaion, the Temple of Apollo, the Plutonium and the Acropolis. Dinner and overnight at the hotel.

 

DAY 3: PAMUKKALE / EFESO / IZMIR / ISTANBUL (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner )

We visit the spectacular ruins where the excavations continue in this important and unique city, founded in the 10th century BC. Walking along the history between marble streets with magnificent public buildings, we find among them the baths of the Scholastic, the library of Celsius, the Temple of Hadrian and the Theater. The Temple of Diana of the Ephesians, another of the seven wonders of the ancient world, was built in this city. We visited the Basilica of San Juan. We will visit the House of the Virgin Mary.
