According to your private tour pick-up time, meet with your guide and start your full-day tour. First visiting the place is PRIENE: Despite of its small size, Priene was an especially important city in ancient times because on its territory stood the Pan ionium, the central meeting-place and sanctuary of the Ionian Confederacy. The theatre, the temple of Athena, the agora, the Bouleuterion and the temenos of Zeus Olympus will be the steps of this visit.
MILETUS: 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 by far the most impressive 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 at the local restaurant continue to Didyma Apollon Temple. Didyma was an ancient Ionian city, the modern Didim, Turkey. The town formed just outside of the sanctuary containing a temple and oracle of Apollo, the Didymium. Didyma was a neighbor 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. Afterward, you drive back to the departure point.
