You can start the visit by the theatre, then go to the western agora, the Ionic Stoa and continue by the eastern agora.
This is the first monument you see when arriving, as it is very close to the main road. When Milet was a port it was by the water, but now the shoreline has moved some kilometres away...
Bouleterion was a kind of ancient senate. You can see the steps where the citizens used to seat to discuss about city matters.
You can still see here the central atrium surrounded by doric columns, where the sportmen used to train naked. It's in the lower part of the city, near the stadium.
Priene. Athena's Temple
This was the most important temple of the city. Now there's only some ionic columns standing. The temple was finished during Alexandre the Great times.
