Owner description: Once an ancient city of Ionia, Prine, with its well-preserved remains of the Temple of Athena, theater, gymnasium and many excavated houses, form one of the best examples of the grid type of town-planning.

Large amphitheatre with original seating capacity for 22,000 people. Quite a hike to get up to it but worth the effort.

The only bad thing I have to say was not enough time to explore on the RSD coach tour of the aegean coat because of having to fit three places in on the same day!

After a steep climb the view was amazing. You can still see the streets where trade was carried out, and we met a team of archeologists who gave us a tour.A visit is well worth the effort. Some shady spots for a picnic too.

The overall site is a little disappointing with a few good ruins here and there. It is wheelchair accessible for some parts and has a view of the valley below. Other than a few pillars and a decent sized theater, I wouldn't go out of my way to get here. We took a taxi to Priene, Miletus, and Dydima for 300 Turkish liras, which we bargained down from 350 they originally quoted us. I'd recommend to just skip this and go straight to Miletus and Dydima and probably get a better bargain.

We visited this site, when we first entered you might think to yourself this is not going to be great but as you get further in to the site it starts to become fantastic especially as you get closer to the libary.
