Enjoy a day full of archeological wonders on this archaeology tour. Start in Didyma, also known as the home of God. It is famous for the Apollo Temple which is slightly larger than a football field. There were 128 finely decorated columns, some of which are 19.50 meters high. We’ll also head to Miletos, one of the greatest and richest of all the Greek cities. It was also the hometown of the Olympic Games which had nearly 90 colonies. Here, we will explore the Theater where St. Paul gave his emotional good-bye message to the elders of Ephesus, the Faustina Baths, The Harbour Monument and the Ilyas Bey Mosque. Next we’ll head to Priene, the favorite home of Alexander The Great because it had one of the best settings of any of the cities of the ancient world. Although an earthquake and malaria became two major reasons for the end of the city’s inhabitation, you’ll get to see the best preserved attractions including the IVth century BC Athena Temple, Parliamentary Building, Fish Market, the Theater and the city walls.
