Priene, Miletos and Didim are three cities that I recommend to visit if in southwest Turkey. There are some very unique features about all these cities. At Miletos again it was the theatre. Not much of the city ruins have yet been excavated but whatever...More

This theatre is one of the largest and most complete I have visited. It was quite awe inspiring and it was great to climb all over it and walk through its passages and vomitoriums.

One of the problems you will face in the touristic sites is Turkey is that they are usualy extremely crowded. Miletus is an exception to that. It is situated in a quiet area, near Didim, and it is almost never crowded. The entrance fee is...More

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

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
