Full description
Enjoy an all-inclusive trip to Leodicea and Aphrodisias with lunch and all transportation. We will pick you up from your hotel between 04:30-05:00 in Istanbul, and travel to the airport. You will then take a morning flight to Denizli City (depending on flight schedules, a flight can also be arranged from Izmir airport). Upon arrival in Denizli, we will begin the one hour drive to Laodiceia Ancient city. Laodicea is situated on a hill amongst the valleys, with the running Asopus and Kapros streams that flow into the Lycus River, now known as Curuksu Cayi. It is one of the Seven Churches of early Christianity, and you will learn about the history from our professional guide while you take in the views. Laodicea was founded on an important trade route. Throughout the area, there are many historic ancient cities. Just 10km to the north is the famous Roman spa of Hierapolis, while Colossae lies 14.5km to the east. The city of Tripolis on the Meander is also 26km north-west of Laodicea. After your visit to Laodiceia City, we will drive to the ancient city of Aphrodisias, a small Greek city in the province of Caria. Aphrodisias was one of several ancient cities dedicated to the goddess of love. Learn about the ancient history of the area, including Roman triumphs and tribulations, and the hand the city played in the assassination of Julius Ceaser. We end of the tour by driving you back to Denizli airport for your evening flight to Istanbul (in case of flight unavailability, flights will take a Istanbul-Izmir-Istanbul route).
