As one of the most historically, culturally and politically relevant countries in the world, Turkey is the ideal destination for students on a school trip abroad to learn more about the Classics. Resonate with important history and inhabited since the Palaeolithic Period, Turkey has been a bridge between the East and the West for centuries. The depth of history and culture that has permeated the country will leave you reeling. For this reason, one of the best things to do while on a school trip to Turkey is to break your excursions down into small, manageable segments. One of the richest aspects is the element of the Classics that come to life in this part of the world. While you are here take the time to explore Ephesus and Hierapolis.

Located in the Izmir Province, near the modern city of Selçuk on the southwestern coast of Turkey, Ephesus is a historically important city. Its heritage dates back to the Neolithic Age and it was one of the 12 cities of the Ionian League during the classical Greek era. It was also one of the largest cities during the Roman period. Ephesus was one of the cities mentioned in the Book of Revelations in the Bible, and it is thought that perhaps it was here that the Gospel of John was written. There is so much history in this one area you could easily spend months experiencing it, but since time is always limited on a school trip, at least ensure you get to see the main sights. These include the Library of Celsus, which was completed in 135 AD; the Temple of Artemis, which was one of the Seven Wonders of the World (destroyed and rebuilt several times); and the Basilica of St John, which was built by Justinain I in the sixth century and was built over the supposed burial site of the apostle.

Situated in southwestern Anatolia, the ancient city of Hierapolis sits on the site of hot springs near Pamukkale in Modern Turkey. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city is likely to be an important part of your itinerary on a school trip to the region. Just a short distance from Ephesus, the hot springs here have been in use since the second century BC. The city was built on a grid of streets that ran perpendicular or parallel to the main thoroughfare and it is here that the necropolis of Marcus Aurelius is located. Visit the theatre that was first destroyed by an earthquake in 17 AD and rebuilt in 60 AD, then head over to explore the Temple of Apollo, Neptune’s Gate and the Necropolis. You’ll need at least a few days to get to grips with all the city has to offer as a gateway into the past.
