Aphrodisias has it all - theatre, hippodrome, baths, and other well preserved ruins spread over a large area but well signposted and easy to get around. There is also an amazing museum with a very extensive collection of artifacts, all sourced locally.

We went to Aphrodisias by ourselves. Did not require a guide, but did need transportation to get there. The guide books were enough for self guided tour at our own pace and comfort.
