Visiting: 3 Ancient cities of Priene, Miletos and Didyma

Duration: 8 hours

Today you will be visiting some of the archaeological world's most impressive wonders with a professional local guide who will meet you with a name placard as you exit Izmir harbour.

Miletos
Dating back to the 6th century BC, Miletos was once one of the greatest and wealthiest Greek cities. It boasted multiple harbours that have altered over time due to sedimentation - a process that has made dating the establishment of the city difficult. Miletos makes an appearance in the New Testament, with the Apostle Paul journeying through here on the way back from Jerusalem. Today the Bath of Faustina, the Delphinion and the Amphitheatre are among its most impressive ruins.


Priene
Dating back to 2000 BC, Priene is believed to be one of the oldest settlements in the region and its name derives from Praisos or Prainson in the Greek Cretan Islands. The city was under the rule of the Bergamian King for some of its existence, before returning to Roman rule upon his death. Its most famous ruin is the impressive Temple of Athena whose construction was funded by Alexander the Great.

Didyma
Famed for its Temple and Oracle of Apollo which took more than 150 years to complete and was the most important of its time, the town of Didyma was visited by people from far and wide. During the Byzantine period, a church was built upon its foundations and this mixture of religious architectural styles is visible in the ruins today.
