Sardis (Sart) Tours and Activities

star-5
26 Reviews

Pre-Roman ancient ruins are just a day trip from Kusadasi in the ruined city of Sardis, the capital of the kingdom of Lydia from the 7th to 6th centuries BC.

For a time Sardis (Sart, today) was renowned throughout classical antiquity as the richest city on the planet, known for its legendary supply of gold washed down from the Tumulus Mountains. The term ‘rich as Croesus’ refers to that gold and the last Lydian ruler, King Croesus, who is thought to have invented gold coins.

In fact, settlement here dates back to Paleolithic times, but most of that history lies underground, destroyed by millennia of earthquake activity. Nowadays, the site is famous for its impressive Roman ruins, built hundreds of years after the city’s initial burst of fame, in around the 2nd century AD.

On a visit to the site you’ll see a grand double-story framework of columns and architraves outlining the extent of the Roman-era gymnasium. The baths here date from the 3rd century AD, and shops once lined the nearby street of marble stone. Fine capitals carved with acanthus leaves and classical curlicues have survived, along with mosaic tiled floors and statues.

You’ll also see the Synagogue with its marble court and mosaics, the acropolis and the celebrated Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Don’t miss the example of the Romans’ communal toilets, with a shared row of seating suspended over a latrine. The town’s arena was destroyed by an earthquake nearly 2,000 years ago, and there are more recent ruins dating from the Byzantine period.

The Seven Churches of Revelation Tour

The Seven Churches of Revelation Tour

“I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet saying, ‘What thou seest, write in a book and send it to the seven churches: unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamum, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.’” —Rev. 1:10-11 (ASV). Well, Turkey is the home to all seven of the churches mentioned in the Book of Revelation, also known as the apocalypse, which was written by St. John the Apostle (also the author of the Gospel of John), who was exiled to the island of Patmos for his Christian faith. The Seven Churches are located in the geographic region of the Roman Empire known as the State of Asia. An optional overnight visit to the Island of Patmos, Greece, may be added to your tour if desired. Please contact us for pricing and details. We are here to offer you an immaculate spiritual experience in our holy region.
