Enjoy a full-day guided tour in Pamukkale National Park, one of the most interesting places in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
What to Expect
Upon your arrival to “Pamukkale Village”, brilliantly white dramatic travertine appears in the distance which is visually quite stunning.
Firstly you will have your lunch at a local restaurant. Then your guide will take you to visit Hierapolis, an example of an ancient Greco Roman Spa City from the late 2nd Century AD. You may then have a look at its ruins like the great necropolis (or ancient graveyard) which is the evidence that here was a place where many sick people came in search of a cure, but died anyway.
Then you begin your approach to the white calcium ponds filled with heavily mineralized therapeutic warm water, which flows from the surrounding hot springs. Take off your shoes and have an interesting walk in these natural pools for a while. You will also go to the public Antique (or Cleopatra’s) hot spring pool, which is the only one in the world where one can swim on fluted drums of fallen marble columns from the nearby ancient site. The pool is constantly refreshed by an inflow of hot calcium-laden mineral water.
After the tour transfer back to the hotel.
