The archaeological site of Miletos (or Miletus) lies 22km north of Didim and several km inland from the coast. Here are the ruins of the ancient city of Miletos, which before the Persian invasion in the 6th century BC was the greatest and wealthiest of Greek cities.
The most significant structure visible nowadays is the theatre, a huge structure with 15000 seats built in Roman times on the site of a previous Greek theatre with 5300 seats. Other ruins are spread over an area of about 500m x 500m. These include baths, two agoras, a temple and a dephinion.
How to get to Miletos

Miletos is just an archaeological site with no accomodation adjacent to it. Tourists usually stay in one of the nearby cities along the coast.
