Amazing site, but few information about history, some places hidden in the grass, no signs. It seems many history is hiding in the grass, visitors have to be patient to try to find everything because few signs maker it difficult to find everything.

Most tourist go to the site of Ephesus while in Kusadasi but if you're interest in Greek archaeology, you should not miss a one day tour of Didyma, the second most religious site in ancient Greece, and Priene and Miletus, a city at one time larger and more famous than Ephesus

Loved the theatre and baths. Make sure you have enough time to explore the whole site. 2-3 hours would be comfortable. Do some homework and don't trust your guide to show you everything.

We visited Miletus while on a Biblical Tour tracing the footsteps of Paul the Apostle. Miletus is the birthplace of the Hagia Sophia's architect (and inventor of the flying buttress) Isidore of Miletus and Thales, a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher (and one of the Seven Sages of Greece) in c. 624 BC – Wikipedia Paul visited this place as we read,...

This is an interesting site to visit complementing Priene and Dydima. Every site has its own history, main attraction and setting. Miletus is not as crowded and the the theatre is impressive. The baths are interesting too.

This ruins were located on the hill The views were perfect. You could find many similar ruin, but of course the story was different. The temple in Miletus was dedicated to Apollo. The interesting part was the theatre. It was the theatre for gladiator also because thedistance between the floor and the first seat was a bit high, more than... More

At first, Miletus seems a bit of a dust bowl. However, our guide explained this once great city’s significance as a port and its location in the gulf. Indeed, ships once docked where our bus was parked! And those lumpy hills we had driven past were at one time, islands. We started our tour with the small but well restored... More

The theatre and Roman Baths are quite spectacular. This site is well worth visiting, there is so much history to take in. It was a real privilege to walk through the open-air theatre and explore the Roman Baths.
