Once an ancient city of Ionia, Prine, with its well-preserved remains of the Temple of Athena, theater, gymnasium and many excavated houses, form one of the best examples of the grid type of town-planning.

This contemporary city of Ephesus is only about 5% uncovered from 5000 years of dirt, but what is uncovered reveals a city laid out in a grid and a well defined plan. The climb up the hill is steep and walking amoungst the ruins was...More

I visited with my 10-year-old who recently went to Ephesus. This was a much more interactive experience as we got to walk among the ruins and explore the streets on our own. Everything was easy to access with simple signs that explained the ruins. There...More

Located at the base of an escarpment, it is one of the most syphatetic ancient Greek city I have ever been to. It is really hard to believe that it was an important port in the ancient times since you don't even have a sea...More

An awe inspiring place with oodles of history :) very nicely preserved with plenty too see. Very reasonable price for entry unlike other archeological sites and also fairly quiet which creates a nice ambience.

These sites are great! Given that it's probably a little off the map for most tourists and lesser known than e.g. Ephesus or Troy, we had the entire archaeological are for ourselves (almost - there were maybe another 8-10 visitors). This makes a huge difference...More

We visited Priene on a one day trip as part of the 3 important ancient sites - Priene, Miletus and Didima. We went by our car but there are also organized tours offered by local travel agencies in Kusadasi. If you go by your car...More

Visited with another couple and this was our favorite ancient site near Selcuk, even over Ephesus. I strongly recommend going, but you will need to do research in advance or have a guide. Good: - It's not crowded! This gives it an air of peace...More

Another ancient archeological site where we felt like it was booked only for us. Apart from the lack of any brochure or map of the site, the ruins are amazing and the location, on a pretty steep hill, is uncomparable.

I would only add to the above advice to wear good walking shoes as the marble steps in Priene can be slippery and uneven in places. A whole day in Priene seems overkill however. We did Priene, Miletus & Didyma easily in... More

This is a tough one to reply to as both tours have their unique features. Ephesus is the big tourist destination due to easy access from ships & Izmir. I think I got more out of Priene & Miletus, due to the different... More
