This is well worth a visit. Historically it used to be the main Harbour until the water was re-routed. It’s guarded and amazingly well kept. Refreshments on site and plenty of parking. If you are disabled, you cannot access ruins.

The theatre with its imposing pillars around the grand seats is huge and magnificent. The rest of the site is open and unshaded. But the lion guarding the old port sunk in the ground is worth seeking out, the massive nympheum fountain next to the...More

It's a great daytrip from Kusadasi, less than 2 hrs drive and there's plenty to see at both sites. Unlike Ephesus, there are no crowds to fight ; as a matter of fact, when we were there, we were the only tourists. When you arrive,...More

We really enjoyed our visit to Miletus. This huge site had been built over many times over the centuries that followed the first major structures such as the theatre which had been built by the Ancient Greeks in about 700BC. This does not detract from...More

This is a SUPERB example of an Ancient Ampitheatre. You get to wander around the tunnels and up into the stadium. Seating for 3500 originally, extending to 15000 by the Romans, but the Roman part of the ruin is not as spectacular as the Greek....More

We take a short visit here between Priene and Didyma. It has a different touch but it is amazing. It was nice to visit it.
