Discover the history and ancient beauty of Priene, Miletos and Didyma on a full day tour shore excursion from the port. Step back in time as you explore these ancient ruins, temples and cities located in western Turkey.
What to Expect
Following your pick-up from the port, the tour begins in the city of Priene. Set dramatically at the foot of a sheer mountain wall, Priene overlooks the aptly named Meander River. This 2,500-year-old Ionian city was among the first to be planned with a grid system of streets.
The tour then moves onto the ruins of Miletos, near the Aegean Sea. Here you can explore the ancient theater, built around the 4th century BC, which once accommodated more than 15,000 spectators. You will also visit the well-preserved Bath of Faustina - named after the wife of Marcus Aurelius - who ordered its construction.
Finally the tour moves to Didyma, which was once connected to Miletos by a sacred road during the antiquity period. Here you will visit the ruins of the Temple of Apollo, one of the largest temples from the Hellenistic Period.
After the tour you will be transferred back to your cruise ship.
