The PMD (Priene, Miletos and Didyma) Tour is a great opportunity to see some of the most impressive ancient ruins around today.
PRIENE was one of the most active ports of Ionian Federation. Making the site particularly interesting is the unique system of geometric city planning introduced in the 4th centry B.C. by Hippodamos of Miletos. The theater is the most popular and impressive monument of Priene.
MILETOS, like Priene, was a great Ionian port and the native land of several philosophers and sages. Most of the monuments at the site are badly ruined except for the theater and the baths of Faustina. The theater, reconstructed during the Roman Period, is an impressive building leaning against the slope of a hill.
DIDYMA only possesses a single monument, but is nevertheless a marvelous site. The temple of Apollo was one of the most sacred places in antiquity; it has been looted and burned many times. The sanctuary is still impressive and elegantly beautiful. The colossal Temple (measuring 180m by 60m) was surrounded by a portico of double colonnades.
