It worth to spend some hours to visit the ancient city Hierapolis. It was really big and the distances between remaining ruins are pretty long. The amphitheater is being renovated. I liked more the historical part of this place than the travertin terraces.

An amazing, historic and dreamy place. You have to visit the historic bath and swim among Roman columns.

I really liked cos it is a natural wonder however each year it's drying up and the beauty of it is vanishing but still it's a must see if you're in the neighbourhood. It's absolutely worth it with a visit to the Hierapolis city with the old Roman theatre. I took these photos last week and they should give you... More

Cleopatras spa makes for a good day trip. The calcium rich pools and white cliff makes for some beautiful pictures and the amphitheater at the top of the hill is very touristic. Hierapolis is said to be the site where St. Philip was martyred.

Good way to do this was a hire car from Marmaris.....the roads are good and scenic too..Parking was free on the roadside next to a lovely public park and lake at the foot of the the hill with the travertine slopes. Don't take any notice of pushy people who flag you down to buy guide books and direct you to... More

This natural jewell is devastated and destroyed by turist industry. I have visited this place many times since 1998. The area of the travertin sediments is actually aprox. 20% only of the original one due to the hotels constructed on the hill and actually left out.

This is a busy tourist site and has the attractions of extensive ruins and thermal baths. For the less able there are motor trikes and golf buggies to get around on. You can pay to swim in Cleopatra's Pool which is like warm Perrier, or just go for a paddle in the travertines. Give yourself plenty of time to explore... More

We were a bit hesitant to go, as the temperature was 112 degrees. However, You start at the bottom of a calcified hill, and wade thru shallow, running water, working your way up the hill. The traction is excellent, and the cool water keeps you from getting overheated. It's actually quite enjoyable. At the top is a park and a... More
