Approximately 5¼ Hours
Your day will begin with a visit to Miletus -- the oldest and the most powerful of the twelve Ionian cities in Asia Minor.
Miletus is renowned for being the first city to which the principles of modern town planning were applied. The grid plan introduced by Hippodamos was later to form the basis of planning in all Roman cities and throughout much of the western world.
See the ruins of the theatre, baths and stadium. Visit the newly opened Archaeological Museum at Miletus to examine some wonderful artifacts taken from the many ancient sites in the area.
Travel via the Sacred Way to Didyma. This ancient road was once flanked by lions, sphinxes and statues of priests.
Didyma is home to the amazing and majestic Temple of Apollo, considered to be one of the great monuments of antiquity. It was built in 560 BC.
Return to Kusadasi, where you will have time to shop or attend a optional Turkish carpet demonstration.
Tour includes a lunch box -- a sandwich with cheese, an apple, fruit juice and chocolate cookies, and small bottle of water. Wear comfortable, non-skid walking shoes.
