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 can clearly be seen. The theatr was enlarged by Hadrian to seat 25,000 spectators.
Other important remains include temples, baths and two angoras. When St. Paul visited Miletus had two main harbours. The Theatre Harbour and the Lion Harbour. The latter was guarded by two marble Lions, one of which remains. However, this is hard to find but have a small note or some coins at hand because a shepherd frequently materialists and acts as a guide.
If you have the time Miletus, Priene and Dydima can all be visited in a long day.
