Priene, Miletos, Didyma Tour and Our TourOrganization.

We start our tour with pick up service from the any hotel you stay in Selcuk or Kusadasi with in different time frames that you will be informed.

Being an ancient city of Ionia, Priene’s well-preserved remains are a major source of information about ancient Greek town planning.According to the ancient tradition, Priene was founded by Aepytus, a son of Neleus - the founder of Miletus, and a grandson of Neleus - the king of Athens. He selected the place of earlier Karian settlement called Kadme. The co-founder of the colony was Philotas from the Greek city of Thebes. We will see Theater, Bouleterion, Prytaneion, Temple of Athena, House of Alexander the Great (where he stayed during his siege of Miletos).

Miletos was one of the cities in Ionian League; challenging the power of Ephesus. Today, the crowds of sightseers from all over the world rub shoulders in Ephesus, leaving the pleasure of discovering the secrets of Miletus to small groups of curious visitors who manage to reach this site.According to legend which has three versions, the city is believed to be founded by a hero named Miletos. The area was a place for settlement even in Neollithic period (3500-3000 BC). In Hittite documents, the area was named as Millawanda.

Before 500 BC, Miletus was the greatest Greek city in the east. It was the natural outlet for products from the interior of Anatolia; and the city was distinguished for its literary and scientific-philosophical figures, among them are Thales, Anaximander, Anaximenes, and Hecataeus.

Inour Miletos tour, we'll be seeing Theater, Byzantine Fortress, Harbour Monuments, Delphinium, South Agora, Baths of Faustina, Mosque of Ilyas Bey, and Caravansaray.

Didyma was famous throughout the ancient world as the place where a colossal Temple of Apollo stood, and the oracle revealed the future. The Word meant ‘the twins’ and the place was the meeting place of Zeus and Leto, to have their twins Apollo and Artemis. In its heyday, Didyma was not a city, but a place of worship, connected with Miletus by the so-called Sacred Way. This road was used by the pilgrims who arrived at Didyma, seeking answers to nagging questions.

The first temple in Didyma was built by the ancient Greeks in the late 8th century BCE. Today, the remains of the archaic temple are located under Hellenistic construction.

Our daily tour will be finalised around 04:30 pm and you will be transferred back to your hotels.
