Full description
Enjoy an excursion to Pamukkale, and see the ruins of the Greco-Roman settlement at Hierapolis as well as the extraordinary natural formation known as the Cotton Castle. Reach Pamukkale and visit the ancient city of Hierapolis to see the Greco-Roman ruins. These include the great Roman theater, the tomb of St. Philip, the Roman baths, the temple to Apollo, and others. The kings of Pergamon established the thermal spa of Hierapolis, which is registered as cultural and natural heritage site by UNESCO. During your visit to this open-air museum, you’ll also see a massive ancient graveyard that contains over 1,200 sarcophagi, many of which are the size of a small house. Pamukkale’s alien-seeming landscape is the result of calcite-laden waters that flow from springs in a cliff that rises 200 meters over the plain. You’ll see formations that resemble forests and waterfalls, and also a series of terraced basins.

    Great value and good fun

    This was a fantastic day trip out of Bodrum... though I would have liked more time in Pamukkale. The soak in the pool is well worth it. The only thing that spoilt it was the stop at the leather shop on the way back, where we were subjected to a naff catwalk show then encouraged to buy leather clothing on a rather warm day. It would have been better (and probably more appropriate) if we stopped at one of the Onyx workshops the region is famous for.

    The drive is very exhausting, we weren't able to look at everything, because only 2.5 hours were actually on site and that was not enough time. In addition, too many long stops, two of them at sales halls, where you don't have to buy anything but unfortunately wasted time that could have been spent better in Pamukkale.
