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 Fethiyefrom Oludeniz 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 clear water 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. If time permits, your tour will also include a trip to a gemstone factory.

A long but really great day. Received more than what was advertised for this trip. Our tour guide. Yalcin, was awesome. Funny and educated in his history & geography. He had all of us, different races, ages, home counties laughing and entertained on the 3+ hour ride each way. Our driver Chiat was also very nice and helpful. Pamukkale was absolutely beautiful. Be very careful it can be slippery. Take caution signs seriously. The spring water was warm and soothing. We opted to swim in Cleopatra's pool. The hot mineral water felt so good and left my skin feeling and looking better. Hierapolis was incredible to see in person. It was very hot outside the day of our trip, 99 degrees. Be prepared with sun block or an umbrella. The archeological history is beyond measure. Keep track of time - 3 1/2 hours seems long but with clothes changes if doing Pamukkale & the pool first it's easy to lose time in Hierapolis.
