Miletus, Didim

4.4
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.

  • The most important philosophers of ancient Greece (Thales, Anaksimander) lived. Their walks and exciting to touch to his seat. With a tour guide. We and our guide we walked around with Mr. Felicia Travel from Ali was very educational Capes. Unfortunately I don't have any excavation in the area. Hard to believe. I saw the door of the South in the Agora Museum, Berlin. Too bad at. It's still a wonderful place. Go necessarily,. How much of this is due to the merciless and Menderes River koyulamıyacağını against nature and human feeling.

  • The ancient city is great, but huge ancient City Museum in no way maintenance, routing signs unplaced. Among the thorns and weeds around amfi theatre. Right next to the theater, the villagers are making hay. Despite this, the empty land on the side of the road when they park your car just a meter maid is coming and 5 pounds to parking fee. Such a treasure as a tourism centre of Didim is so close to its own abandonment to become really interesting. All fields in the area around the ancient city of embarrassing the translation of imported stones. The villagers of their front door they put columns left from the Roman period.

  • 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 !!!
