Then to Pergamon, the city described as having the throne of Satan, was “praised for its martyrdom and perseverance but those who hold false teachings are criticized” (Rev. 2:12-17). Here you will have the chance to see the Acropolis, Greek & Roman Temples as well as the theatre built into the steep hillside. After these visits you will be transferred to the hotel in Izmir.  Overnight will be in Izmir.

Day 2 : Thyatira/ Sardis/ Philadelphia

After breakfast, you will drive to Thyatira, “praised for its increasing faith and service, but criticized for its tolerance of Jezebel, an immoral women who calls herself a prophetess” (Rev. 2:18-29). Then your tour will continue to Sardis, “The church of Sardes is described as dead, and it must wake up. However, there are some who have not "soiled their clothes."” (Rev. 3:1-6). You will end the day with a visit to ancient Philadelphia, known for its variety of temples and worship centres. “The church of brotherly love that endures patiently” (Revelation 3:7-13). You will return to Kusadasi where you will stay overnight

"Ephesus receives praise for its perseverance, but criticism for forsaking its "first love"" (Rev. 2:1-7). You will also explore some of the best-preserved theatres, fountains, and buildings in the world. Finally, you will visit the Basilica of St John, which stands over the believed burial site of St. John, who is identified as the apostle, evangelist (author of the Fourth Gospel), and prophet (author of Revelation).
