You can experience a lot of history walking through this place. Milet is a great city.We visited Didyma and Priene at the same two day tour, all sites are very rich.

It's so big (and deserted). Walking down the vast entrance tunnels, looking out over the stands, imagining how the gladiators fought, seeing the holes carved in the wall were slaves (or Christians) tied on display before being offered up as sport to the lions or gladiators - inspiring.

By far one of the best preserved amphitheatres i've ever had the pleasure of seeing. This one is still so much in tact that you can take a walk around inside it, and get a really good feel for what it used to be like when it was in full use. The corridors are HUGE! An absolute pleasure to see.... More

If coming to Turkey for Ephesus by cruise ship, your group will probably stop by the Theater of Miletus for about an hour. Right on the way, the theater is well worth the visit. As you walk through a field to the theater, there are probably thousands of marble pieces that have been excavated but not reassembled yet. You first... More

My group was able to visit Milletus, and it was really a nice visit. We went in the morning, which is important in the Summer in Turkey, as the sun is aggressive. I was impressed with the amount of excavation that had taken place (I was expecting less, I guess), and the amphitheater was impressive, too. The Roman bath ruins... More

having driven from dalyan and stopped at the ruins at didyma, we drove the short distance, 40 km., to miletus along our way to selcuk. very hot, and a very large area to sort out where things are. poor signage, a guessing game. when we arrived, someone approached us in the parking lot to buy tickets from him, didn't ,...

An extensive site flat but some stamina is needed on a hot day if you want to see all the important remains. It is now difficult to believe that St. Paul sailed into Miletus as the town is now 5 miles from the sea due to the harbours silting up. As you approach the site the massive, well preserved theatre... More
