Ephesus, Didyma and Miletus Tour From Kusadasi
You will meet your guide, and you will leave for your first visit, which is Miletus, an old city located near the present Akkoy at the mouth of the Buyuk Menderes (Meander) River. It was a critical position on all trade routes. It was one of the biggest cities in Anatolia with a citizenry of between 80,000 and 100,000, and Highly prosperous, it founded many of the colonies and was the home of the 6C BC philosophers Anaximander. Anaximenes and Thales was the town planner Hippodamus and the creator Isidorus. It seems that Miletus has produced geniuses the way Aphrodisias produced sculptors.
Then, you will visit Didyma. The word Didyma meant "twins" and was linked by some as being the gathering place of Leto and Zeus to have their twins Apollo and Artemis. Didyma was famous for being a prophecy centre dedicated to Apollo which served a comparable ambition as the Delphi of Anatolia. It was not a metropolis but a sanctuary linked to Miletus by Milesians with a 19 km/12 m holy road. This road may not have been made until the end of the 1C AD. Lunch is recommended in a Local restaurant at Selcuk town.
Then, you will visit the site of Ephesus, a stunning standout among ancient ruins remaining in the world of today. This incredible city was founded by the Carians and Lelegs, that later was to become the honeymoon playground of Anthony and Cleopatra.
