Once an ancient city of Ionia, Prine, with its well-preserved remains of the Temple of Athena, theater, gymnasium and many excavated houses, form one of the best examples of the grid type of town-planning.

Priene can be easily done on the same day as Milletus and Didyme. Bring water and/or ayran with you as up there, it's hot and there's nothing for sale. In the village though, there are locals selling various beverages. If you have more time during...More

Priene is the smallest of the Ionian cities but set amongst pine trees and an hour from Ephesus it is a total joy to explore. We walked beside the massive town walls, down the same street that Alexander walked, through the Agora, sat on the...More

The amphitheatre thrones blew me away!! And the old temple, which now looks like a column graveyard, was spectacular. Some of the architectural preservation was amazing :) Well worth the couple of quid to get in, but expect a bit of a steep walk to...More

Alexander the Great made Priene his home base as he laid siege to nearby Miletus. This ancient Greek City has a majestic view of the plains below - it was oceanfront at the time of Alexander but has now silted up. Very few visitors will...More

Hello, sorry to bother you. You mention the steep climb to get there. Is it really bad? Only me, my mother and aunt, who both are in their 70's now and a bit dodgy on their feet, were planning a day out to here in July. Would you recommend 2 over 70's woman with arthritis etc to do this trip, they are not disabled as such, both use walking sticks. Any advice, thanks.

I would only add to the above advice to wear good walking shoes as the marble steps in Priene can be slippery and uneven in places. A whole day in Priene seems overkill however. We did Priene, Miletus & Didyma easily in... More
Having been to both Ephesus and the tour of Priene, Miletus and Doganbey Village, which would you recommend for first timers to Kudasi?

This is a tough one to reply to as both tours have their unique features. Ephesus is the big tourist destination due to easy access from ships & Izmir. I think I got more out of Priene & Miletus, due to the different... More
