Feast your eyes upon the natural phenomenon of the calcium pools at Pamukkale, visit the ruins of the ancient Greek city of Hierapolis and fall for the spell of Aphrodisia. Come with us to this thermal spa resort and see why to this day there are still hot springs drawing thousands every year. You will be greeted by a professional tour guide at Izmir and drive for more than three hours to this combined Unesco World Heritage Site – the journey is worth it. Pamukkale, which in English means ‘cotton castle’, is a series of cascading calcium terraces formed as a result of thermal springs. You will see water laden with calcareous salt, which as it plunges down the mountain side, has created this natural formation of stalactites, falls and basins. 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 and the fourth century basilica. Explore Aphrodisias, the city from where some of the most prized marble used uses in classical sculptures was quarried, which is has some of the best-preserved ruins of the ancient world. Admire the longevity of the Sebasteion and Tetrapylon, the Theatre, Odeon, Bishop's Palace, Stadium and, of course, the temple of the goddess of love, Aphrodite, the city’s focal point. Other information Museums are closed on Mondays. In the event of any museum closures, an alternative similar museum will be visited. Redeem informationVoucher type: E-VoucherE-voucher.
