Duration: 8 hours (approx)
The tour covers 3 magnificent cities of ancient times, close to each other. Pick-up from your hotel in Kusadasi. After driving 30 minutes, we will reach to Priene ancient city. Despite of it’s small size, Priene was a very important city in ancient times because on it’s territory stood the Panionium, the central meeting-place and sanctuary of the Ionian Confederacy. The theatre, the Temple of Athena, the agora, the Bouleterion and the temenos of Zeus Olympus will be the steps of this visit.
Miletus was the principal port and the richest imperium at the Aegean coast. Thales of Miletus believed that there was a fundamental unity beneath the apparent disorder and complexity of nature and he postulated that water was the basic material for all things. The theatre of Miletus is the most impressive one of the town’s surviving monuments. There is also the council-chamber, marketplace, temples, baths and Islamic monument; Ilyas Bey Mosque to be visited.
After lunch, we will visit the Didyma Apollon Temple. Didyma was an ancient Ionian city, now the modern Didim of Turkey. The town formed just outside of the sanctuary containing a temple and oracle of Apollo, the Didymaion. Didyma was a neighbour of Miletus. To approach it, visitors would follow the sacred way to Didyma. Both Herodotus and Pausanias dated the origins of the oracle at Didyma before the Ionian colonization of this coast. After the tour return back to your hotel.
