Full description
Explore the unique travertine terraces of Pamukkale (literally “Cotton Castles” in Turkish), and enjoy a full-day trip to one of Turkey’s most popular attractions.

Depart Bodrum and transfer by air-conditioned coach to Pamukkale, known as the “8th Wonder of the World” to those in the know. Explore the natural landscape of limpid pools, hot springs and travertine, terraces of carbonate minerals left by flowing water. Inscribed by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 1988, Pamukkale attracts some 2 million visitors every year. Get a view of the terraces from the hills on the opposite side of the valley in the town of Denizli.

Then, go to the ruins of the ancient Greek-Roman city of Hierapolis, built on top of the “Cotton Castles” in the 2nd century BC. See the remains of the Roman amphitheater, and visit the former Turkish Bath, now converted to an archaeological museum.

Discover where Cleopatra used to swim, and the monumental tomb of the Christian apostle St. Philippe. Marvel at the Necropolis of Anatolia, filled with sarcophagi, most notably that of Marcus Aurelius Ammianos.

We really enjoyed the tour, especially on site! It is wonderful. We had 3 hours on site in Pamukkale. This is enough to see most of it, but you could definitely stay there much longer. I would have liked to have had more time here and left out the stops on the way there and back in the stone and leather shop. These were only for sale. Toilet breaks would have been enough for me. Otherwise everything was pretty well organized and it was a nice tour.

The path is a bit long but it is worth it to see this fabulous landscape of indescribable beauty. On the other hand for the road plan something to eat the food is horrible and expect unnecessary stops like to see a leather factory or a bazaar ... Overall we were satisfied with the execution
