Miletus: Miletus was the principal port and the richest imperium at the Aegean coast.

There is also the council-chamber, marketplace, temples, baths and Islamic monument: Ilyas Bey Mosque to be visited.

Didyma: Didyma was an ancient Ionian city, the modern Didim, Turkey. The town formed just outside of the sanctuary containing a temple and oracle of Apollo, the Didymaion.
