After a visit to the Temple of Artemis (one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World), you will arrive at Sirince Village. This old Orthodox village, located five miles from Kusadasi, was once named "Cirkince" (ugly). Indeed, its inhabitants chose this name to discourage foreigner visitors because they didn't want to share the beauty of their village. Still, after several years, visitors understood that it was not ugly and it was re-named "Sirince" (pretty). Today, the village is a perfect synthesis of Turkish-Greek culture.
At Sirince Village, you will experience local life and have the opportunity to purchase local souvenirs and handicrafts. After lunch, you can enjoy a cup of traditional Turkish coffee.
Your last stop will be the Isa Bey Mosque, a 14th century Turkish architectural masterpiece.
