Visit the Stoa, the Agora, the Market Place, the Temenos of Zeus Olympic, which dates from the 3rd Century BC., the Bouleuterion, the Prytaneion where municipal or state council representatives met, the Theatre which still retains most of its Hellenistic features, the Sanctuary of Demeter which was dedicated to the deities of Plenty, Demeter and Kore.
Also see the Archbishop's Church, the Upper Gymnasium and the Stadium, North-East Gateway, the Temenos of Kybele and the House of Alexander the Great where he stayed during his siege of Miletus in 334 BC.
Miletos which has provided its alphabet to the rest of the classical world, was a great port and the hometown of several philosophers and sages.
Continue to Didyma's Temple of Apollo with its very well-known oracles and one of the sacred places of antiquity. Walk in the footsteps of priests who visited this great temple to consult the oracle. Although looted and burnt many times, it keeps the original impression. Not too far from the site you see the beautiful beach of Altinkum.
Neon told us to deal directly with Grand Wonders, a local Efes tour company, to confirm our private tour to Priene, Miletus, Didyma. This was not acceptable since Neon was responsible for our private tour and yet we have to negotiate on our own.
Overall, the tour guide was knowledgeable, the car was clean. Lunch was provided at a local restaurant where food was not good and the restaurant did not appear to take cleanliness as their priority.
