Depart from Kusadasi or Izmir Ports, Shore Excursions:
We depart around 09:00am and on the tour plan first will be seen Priene: As the city had been demolished, its restoration has been planned by the famous city planner and architect, Hippodamos, who used for the first time the "Grating System": all the constructions were turned to the South in order to benefit a maximum of the day light. Then we drive to Miletos: where visit to the most important monuments to be seen at Miletos are: the Bath of Faustina, the Delphinion (small temple dedicated to Apollo Delphinion, protector of ships and harbors) and the amphitheater. Miletos was also the city of many scientists and philosophers such as Thales, Anaximander, Hekataios (principle source to Herodotos) and closer to us, Isidorus, the architect of Ayasofia in Istanbul. And had its alphabet recognized by the Greek world as the official Greek alphabet, basis of the current Latin alphabet. Continue to our tour just arrive to the Didym: where We have seen the famous Oracle Temple the temple was famous all over the Greek world for its oracles so that it even surpassed the reputation of Delphi. The reason for which the harbor of Panamos near Didym became very busy and was visited by lots of commanders, ordinary and respected people, is that they wanted to learn their future from the priests of the temple. The oracle ceremonies were in two steps : the Pithy would first comment the glitters on the waters of a well and then the priests would translate these into literal and impressive words. During the tour also will be seen The Theater, Temple of Diana, Pryataneum, Agora, Byzantine Fortress, Nymphonian, Bouleterion, Faustina Bath, Ilyas Bey Mosque.
