After breakfast, your pick up will be scheduled for 08:30am from the hotel to start the Miletos, Priene and Didiyma Tour. Our Professional tour guide will be introducing the ancient sites of Miletos, Priene and Didyma.
Didyma, Miletos and Priene Tour. Our first visit to the Temple of Apollon, One of the most important oracles in the ancient World was located at Didyma (Didim). It was designed by Paionios, one of the architects of the temple of Artemis in Ephesus. The oracle at Diyma, that issued many fateful pronouncements, dates back to the worship of a local Anatolian god in prehistoric times.
Visit to Miletos, the first city in Anatolia to be colonized by Greeks. In about 1700 BCE, in the Middle Bronze Age, Minoans from Crete were attracted by its ideal situation on a defensible peninsula with four natural harbours and good agricultural land. Miletos was the most wealthy city where firstly coins were minted.
Visit to Priene, from the flat valley of the Maeander River we see a dark green band of trees on a broad terrace below the craggy cliffs of Mount Mycale. They mark the site of the splendid city that prospered and gradually declined over a period of eight centuries. It sloped gently to the South offering a prospect over a fertile land towards its harbour and distant mountains.
After the Didyma, Miletos and Priene sightseeing tour, drive back to hotel.
