Aizanoi

July 9, 2011

Aizanoi was a pleasant surprise. Its temple of Zeus is apparently one of the best preserved in Turkey, the theater is pretty spectacular, there are some Roman bridges, baths, a stadium, forum, and a round building with Diocletian’s Price Edict inscribed on it. All these things are spread around the modern village of C╠žavdarhisar.

Aphrodisias

Easily the best place I visited in Turkey this summer, Aphrodisias is sprawling and full of great sights (even before you get to its excellent museum).
