Ruin Tourist Spot
Miletus represents one of the most prominent Greek cities from two-and-a-half millennia ago. It flourished throughout the existence of the Greek and Roman civilizations and left a great legacy to the world, including the origins of science. Today, the remains of its ancient structures spread across 90 hectares (220 acres) of land; among them are a 25,000-seat theater, lavish 1st-century CE roman baths, and enormous defense fortifications. Walk through the streets and squares of the complex to encounter various preserved monuments, colonnades, portals, and ancient hallways. The site also houses a small history museum. Our Didim itinerary builder makes visiting Miletus and other Didim attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • One the best places in the world. Ancient zikkurat that looks like a theatre.
  • A great theatre and also a great bathhouse, but otherwise the ruins are not so special compared to other nearby sites. Very hot place during summer, no shade - bring a hat.
  • Hecataeus belonged to miletus
  • Unbelievable place, hard to imaging it was built thousands years ago!
  • People remember the greatness of the Greeks and what we owe to them !!!
