Wonders of Western Turkey: Pamukkale - Hieropolis & Travertens

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from £162.72 GBP / Adult
OverviewHide
Step back in time on this journey to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hierapolis and to the surreal Pamukkale terraces. Your adventure begins with a three-hour drive through Turkey's scenic countryside. Pamukkale is the site of a natural thermal spring which cannot be found anywhere else on earth. Otherworldly white terraces made of travertine shimmer with milky blue water, through which you can see submerged Roman ruins. Here, you'll also find the ancient city of Hierapolis, known for its large necropolis, with over 1200 gravestones. Visit the sacred pool, where shallow thermal waters ripple over ancient Roman ruins which lie beneath the surface. The chemical properties of the water has created pure white stepped terraces on the mountain slope. Take a stroll through the ancient city or visit the thermal baths for a healing soak. After, sit down for a delicious Turkish-style lunch at a local restaurant.
