The city of Miletus was already a center of Greek civilization in the Bronze Age, and was to remain the largest Greek city in Asia Minor until the Roman age. Today, however, the ruins are a bit disappointing. There’s the theater, of course, but the ancient market is usually a sad, wet field, and you can not reach most buildings. The best moment to go to there is, I think, the end of summer.

I already had some photos online of our rather disappointing visit; I’ve now added a history of the city. Somehow, the subject did not make me very enthusiastic.
