Asia Minor

Have you wondered where Asia Minor is located?

Ministers and Bible Scholars are familar with Asia Minor.  This area has more coverage in the New Testament than Israel.    Paul was born in the area and spent much of his adult life, after his conversion, establishing churches in Asia Minor.

With modern Istanbul as a starting point, you can visit the sites of the Seven Churches of Asia Minor at Pergamium, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, Laodicea, Ephesus and Smyrna.  There are tours of various lengths from a one day to Ephesus from a cruise ship to 16 day tour that includes some of Greece. 

From ancient history and archeology to modern jeep and horse safaris to nature tours and underwater adventures.  The choices are numerous and fit everyone.  There are seven distinct regions, each with it’s own amazing landscapes.  And don’t forget the history of the Silk Road through Turkey.

Of course Ephesus tours are at the foremost of everyone’s mind.  This is probably the most complete archeological site of the world.  It is continuing today and the amazing ruins are worth at least one full day.  A stop at a rug making school is a must at the end of this tour.  Save money on your credit card to purchase one of these beautiful handmade rugs.  I am loving mine every day.

The port of Kusadasi is beautiful, clean, and modern. I could spend a week there just enjoying the Mediterranean Sea.  There are numerous ferries and charter boats that carry passengers to and from various islands and ports.

Do you belong to a church, synagogue, or temple?  Perhaps you would like to organize a group visit to this beautiful country.  You MUST have the services of a local guide company.  The only one I
