This a site not to be missed and you may not find anyone else there, nothing like the crowds at Ephesus. There are other sites that Ephesus Lodge owner can tell you about too.

This a generally a rather overgrown site with a nearby interesting museum. When we visited it was also waterlogged in places meaning that whilst we could see things like the temple from a distance we could not get close. Those facts may have resulted in a lower rating despite the baths of Faustina which are quite good. However, Miletus boasts... More

Amazing site, but few information about history, some places hidden in the grass, no signs. It seems many history is hiding in the grass, visitors have to be patient to try to find everything because few signs maker it difficult to find everything.

Most tourist go to the site of Ephesus while in Kusadasi but if you're interest in Greek archaeology, you should not miss a one day tour of Didyma, the second most religious site in ancient Greece, and Priene and Miletus, a city at one time larger and more famous than Ephesus

Loved the theatre and baths. Make sure you have enough time to explore the whole site. 2-3 hours would be comfortable. Do some homework and don't trust your guide to show you everything.

We visited Miletus while on a Biblical Tour tracing the footsteps of Paul the Apostle. Miletus is the birthplace of the Hagia Sophia's architect (and inventor of the flying buttress) Isidore of Miletus and Thales, a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher (and one of the Seven Sages of Greece) in c. 624 BC – Wikipedia Paul visited this place as we read,...

This is an interesting site to visit complementing Priene and Dydima. Every site has its own history, main attraction and setting. Miletus is not as crowded and the the theatre is impressive. The baths are interesting too.

This ruins were located on the hill The views were perfect. You could find many similar ruin, but of course the story was different. The temple in Miletus was dedicated to Apollo. The interesting part was the theatre. It was the theatre for gladiator also because thedistance between the floor and the first seat was a bit high, more than... More
