Explore ancient thermal spas and take a dip yourself at Hierapolis, a World Heritage Site. Originally a thermal spa in 2nd century BCE, the Greek ruins of baths, temples, and monuments are still visible today at Hierapolis. Visit the on-site Hierapolis Archaeology Museum to see tombs, monuments, and ruined theatre artifacts. Nearby Pamukkale is a diverse arrangement of hot springs--some for swimming and some for scenic appreciation. One notable area, sometimes referred to as Cleopatra's swimming pool, features a set of tiered travertines on top of which bright aquamarine water gathers.

  • This is a place thats probably worth a visit though if I had to do trip over again I'd skip it; huge crowds, including hordes of school children, during day made hard to enjoy the travertine; ruins...

  • Beautiful amphitheatre..its a beautiful walk up from the pools (the pools are included in the same ticket).. there is also a nice food court at the base of it which is a nice break between seeing the travertines and exploring all the historical sites.. wonderfully restored.. awestruck by how far back these date
  • Feel in love with this place. My watch showed 24500 steps in this area alone. And I didn't cover even half of the places. 1 full day is not enough. Like Ephesus, this city is also stunning. Vast area.
