My trip to Hierapolis and Pamukkale has been a great experience! I spent 3 days in Denizli with my family, and visited Pamukkale on my last day there. And it was marvellous. I had so much fun walking on the travertines on one side and discovering the ancient city, Hierapolis, on the other side. It offers you the perfect scenery:... More

Well protected ancient city located on hot springs. Different atmosphere and around 2200 years structures still standing with their amazing dignity. Try to visit Ephesus as well just a few hours driving distance.

You cant believe what you see infront of you. It is like a cotton sea. Thats why the Turkish name of this area Pamukkale means CottonCastle. The pool is said that heals many ilneses. The area is very large but there are shuttles carrying old people.

Recognised as a world heritage sight, Pamukkale & Hierapolis are the main reason why visitors flock Denizli. From afar, it looks like snow filled hills. Please take note, wearing shoes in the water is prohibited to protect the deposits. As so, do bring a bag to keep your shoes, wet tissues to clean your feet and a small towel to... More

A very interesting place, once a major Greek city. A wonderfully preserved/restored theatre. There is also a nice indoors museum with statues and grounds full of antiquities (gravestones, temple capitels etc.). Cleopatra's Pools with warm thermal waters.

This was the second time I have visited Pamukkale. My first visit 20 years ago, it looks like a lot changed since then. The grounds were well kept and we get to take some awesome photos of Pamukkale (the cotton castle) as well as the Hierapolis. If you are into travertine's and thermal spring waters and historical roman theaters and... More

We picked up from the hotel by the driver only and the tour guide would be picked up about an hour later on the way to Pamukkale. We booked this trip in group... More

To be in the travertines in winter was really crazy but awesome. Walking without shows upon snow, ice and pools was extraordinary. Everybody must to do it!

walk around the open area and enjoy the sights of the ruins; after that go to the cotton castle for a soak for the legs, and the ancient pool for a swim.

The area is located just behind the cotton castle, and you have to pass it first before for convenience and to give you more time to enjoy the castle in the sky. The hierapolis ruins are a unique place on its own, and is included in the UNESCO world heritage. You have to pay the entrance fee first which is... More
