After Epheseus is Pregamon worth visiting?


I plan to take daily tours to Ephesus, Priene-Miletus-Didyma & Pamukkale on three consecutive days from Kusadasi.

After these is Pregamon worth visiting? OR should I devote the next day touring Kusadasi?

I have bad knees . How steep are these ruins? Will it be possible to climb up to Priene?

Looking forward to your advise.

Thanx in advance.

Selcuk, Turkey

Priene is a beautiful place but I find it very hard work. You might want to stay at the tea-house down in the village, as I do when friends visit (I've been up there often enough already!) If you're doing Miletus and Didyma the same day (they're mostly on the flat), that's a long day anyway.

Your extra day would be best spent looking around Selçuk town especially if you're there for the Saturday market.

Pergamon is a great site (but you'll have seen enough by then) - there's a new cable car taking you from the buses to the Acropolis, but I noticed that foreign visitors were having trouble even negotiating the ancient cobbled road at the top. Pergamon is more than 3 hours from Kusadasi, so I wouldn't bother.

If you can find someone who'll take you to the ruined temple of Apollo at Claros, all the better. That's only 40 minutes from Kusadasi.
