Miletus turned out to be one of my favorite sites of the trip: sprawling and full of impressive remains but without all the crowds plaguing Ephesus. There is also a nice little museum nearby. [see also my earlier post on Miletus with (somewhat less impressive) photos taken with my phone]

On the coast south of Troy, Alexandria Troas was once a big deal. Now it’s just a scattering of ruins. Admission: free.

Signage was at a minimum at Alexandria Troas. I'm guessing this was some sort of cistern...
On the road
According to Lonely Planet, Alexandria Troas once boasted the largest Roman baths in Anatolia. It's not hard to believe.
Baths of Herodes Atticus. Do not climb!
