Pamukkale Day Tour
Visit the Red Springs of Karahayit and the magnificent UNESCO-World Heritage-listed ancient city of Hierapolis and Pamukkale’s travertines in ths full day Pamukkale tour which will see you marvelling at the natural wonder of Pamukkale’s famous white travertine pools, exploring the ruins of the ancient spa town of Hierapolis and swimming in the soothing thermal waters of the Cleopatra Antique Pool.
You will be picked up from your Pamukkale or Karahayit hotel between 9.15-9.40am, depending on its location. We will then start our tour from the village of Karahayit, home to the Red Springs, whose thermal waters are a reddish-brown colour due to their high iron content.
We then enter the ruins of the ancient Roman spa town of Hierapolis from the North Gate, working our way through the ruins, with highlights including the necropolis, with over 1500 graves, the Roman Baths, Domitian Gate, the Latrina, Frontinious Street, the Agora, the Byzantium Gate, Triton Fountain, Apollon Temple, Plutonium, and the impressive theatre.
You will then be given free time at the Cleopatra Antique Pool (entrance extra 32TL per person) where you will have the unique opportunity to swim over fallen Roman columns in its thermal waters.
You will then have the opportunity to wander around the travertine pools which were formed by the mineral-laden waters flowing down the hill and depositing calcium carbonate which has built up over time. We will walk down over the travertines together and end the day with a late lunch at a local buffet restaurant.
