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.

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.

Still in excavation stage for the most part, but it was a great place to visit. The theater and Athena`s temple were the most impressing parts as of 2014

Priene is the smallest of the Ionian cities but set amongst pine trees and an hour from Ephesus it is a total joy to explore. We walked beside the massive town walls, down the same street that Alexander walked, through the Agora, sat on the...More

The amphitheatre thrones blew me away!! And the old temple, which now looks like a column graveyard, was spectacular. Some of the architectural preservation was amazing :) Well worth the couple of quid to get in, but expect a bit of a steep walk to...More
