Pamukkale and Hierapolis

For thousands of years humans have been making their way to Pamukkale and Hierapolis to take it in the rare and fascinating landscape, and to relax in the thermal springs. Join us for this full-day tour out of Istanbul to south-west Turkey and discover just why the ancients flocked here. You can choose either an early morning flight to Izmir or a coach journey to Kusadasi the night before. Please note that this is a long journey, with Pamukkale and Hierapolis located more than 600km from Istanbul. Pamukkale and Hierapolis combined are a Unesco World Heritage Site. Pamukkale, which in English means ‘cotton castle’, is a series of cascading calcium terraces formed as a result of thermal springs. There are just a handful of these in the planet and they have to be seen to be believed. The contrast with the surrounding landscape is particularly stark. Up the hill, at Hierapolis, there is a well-preserved Roman theatre and ancient thermal baths, which have been restored and converted into an archaeological museum. Other significant sites include the Temple of Apollo, the Necropolis and the Nymphaeum. Afterwards, you will return to Izmir for evening flight or to Kusadasi for the night bus to Istanbul. Includes round trip plane or bus tickets, transfers to and from central hotels, English-speaking professional guide (other languages are available on request), lunch, museum entrance. Excludes drinks and transfer from the bus station to the hotel (in the bus package) in Istanbul at the end of the tour.
