After breakfast, your pick-up will be scheduled for 08:30 am from the hotel to start the Miletos, Priene, and Didyma 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 Didyma, which issued many fateful pronouncements, dates back to the worship of a local Anatolian god in prehistoric times.
Visit 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 harbors and good agricultural land. Miletos was the most wealthy city where firstly coins were minted.
Visit Priene, from the Maeander River’s flat valley, and we see a dark green band of trees on a broad terrace below the craggy cliffs of Mount Mycale. They mark the splendid city site 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 harbor and distant mountains.
After the Didyma, Miletos, and Priene sightseeing tour, drive back to the hotel.
