Full description

Discover the stunning region of Pamukkale and its hot springs on a day trip from Selcuk, Kusadasi, or Izmir. Begin by meeting your driver/guide at the reception of your hotel in the morning and a transfer to Pamukkale. Explore the ancient city of Hierapolis, built on solid limestone layers formed by mineral-rich waters that flowed for millennia over a raised level plateau. See the most significant sites of the sacred city including the Theatre, the Temple of Apollo, and the Necropolis. Admire the Necropolis (Cemetery) of Hierapolis, one of the largest ancient burial sites in Anatolia. See a Roman bath, the Gate of Domitian, the main street of the ancient city, and the Byzantium Gate. Walk to the natural warm water terraces, formed by running warm water rich in calcium and temperatures of 35 Celsius all year-round. Get the chance to see the gleaming white travertine terraces of Pamukkale, located next to the ruins of Hierapolis. Enjoy optional free time to swim in Cleopatra’s Pool before ending the tour with a transfer back to your hotel. And during the tour you'll have the chance to have a look at the Turkish traditional handcrafts

Great day in Pamukkale The guide was really nice with good explanations I also enjoyed the free time inside Hieropolis and the bath in Cleopatra pool Note that from Izmir it takes 4 hours and not 3. Lunch was good and pick-up time at the hotel perfectly Many thanks for this great experience!

Very well organized, the guide a 10 and the drivers very careful and complying with all traffic regulations. Rich buffet menu. The incredible visit, and bathing in hot springs in the ruins of a Roman forum is a unique experience in the world, only for this I hope to be able to return one day.
