I travelled by dolmus from Cesme, which takes about an hour and a quarter. The dolmus will drop you a short walk away from the amphitheatre. the site has been in use since 88BC,and was visited by Alexander the Great, and was a great trading port for many centuries,into the Roman period. The site was uncovered in 1964, and to be honest,not a lot seems to have been done since this time, which is a pity. It is very overgrown, with carved blocks scattered amongst the general rubble. A reinforced staircase looks to have been partially made, but the whole area needs tidying up..... maybe someone should ring Tony Robinson to bring Time Team in, but a lot more than 3 days would be needed to recreate this once magnificent theatre, which overlooks the sea, and it follows that the surrounding fields must be teeming with artifacts and hidden buildings. The Temple a short distance away ,is a hazardous trek up hill, and not suitable for anyone with walking problems. Once you reach the Temple it is very difficult to ascertain, as the information on a board does not really mean much with the rubble that surrounds you -more work on the layout is needed. The village itself is pretty, with the odd Greek derelict house around, and several cafe's to sample the Turkish tea....or bring a picnic and admire the views,if the weather is good.

The view from the top of the ancient city is amazing. It was advised to see the sunset.The road is a bit difficult to walk and there are stairs to take to get to the top. The buildings are ofcourse very old and some of them are only ruins.But some are very nice and worth to visit. The entrance is free of charge.

An hourly dolmus from Cesme to Ildiri takes you near to the site. It is a fairly steep climb to the top of the overgrown theatre so decent footwear required .The path at the top leads to Byzantine remains but there is a lack of information . It is a shame that it is so neglected.

Above, around and through the sleepy village lies the once important Greek and Roman town. The scale is remarkably large and the lack of tourism makes this particularly interesting. Locals have obviously built homes using the ancient stone and terra cotta. The view from the top of the hill, from the Athena temple is spectacular on a good day, helping one appreciate the commanding presence this town had 3000 years ago!
