Description

On a hill dominating the Plain of Menderes, you can find one of the most remarkable sites in Turkey. This full-day tour shows you the bleached travertines and pools of Pamukkale and the ancient necropolis of Hierapolis, offering a remarkable look at these highlights of the ancient world.

Join your guide for the journey out from your hotel across the ancient Anatolian countryside to Pamukkale, your first destination. The name, which means “Cotton Castle” in Turkish, comes from the pale travertine formations that cascade down the hills, resembling a frozen waterfall. Formed by the mineral-rich waters of the thermal spring, these terraces give this UNESCO World Heritage Site its famous, distinctive look.

Next, head to the ancient city of Hierapolis, founded in the 2nd century BC and once an important Roman community. The city's thermal springs were used as a healing centre from ancient times and its necropolis contains some 1,200 graves, making it the largest site of its kind in Anatolia. Admire the sarcophagi and house-type tombs, along with the ancient theatre and the Martyrium dedicated to Saint Philip, before you head back to your hotel.
