Pamukkale Tour (Departure from Kusadasi)

Pamukkale Tour (Departure from Kusadasi)

  • You will be met at Harbour, Airport or at your Hotel in Izmir or Kusadasi. The guide will hold up a sign with your name on it. We will leave the colorful town behind and pass through the verdant countryside. It takes 3 hours to get to Pamukkale (Hierapolis) from Kusadasi, and 4 hours from Izmir. There will be a break halfway for the needs. You will have an open buffet lunch upon arrival in Pamukkale, then head to the North Gate of Pamukkale (Hierapolis)

    You will see Necropolis (cemetery) of Hierapolis which is one of the biggest ancient cemeteries in Anatolia with 1.200 graves, Roman Bath, Domitian Gate, and the Main Street, Byzantium Gate.
  • After the tour in Hierapolis, there will be a break which you can spend your time to swim in the Ancient Pool (aka. Cleopatra Pool).Please note that swimming in the pool costs an extra fee. The Cleopatra Pool is warmed by hot springs and littered with underwater fragments of ancient marble columns. It is possibly associated with the Temple of Apollo. The pool provides a rare opportunity to swim among antiquities to visitors! During the Roman period, columned porticoes surrounded the pool; earthquakes toppled them into the water where they lie today.

    Last, you will walk to the natural warm water terraces which were formed by the hot water that contains calcium. The temperature of the water is about 35 degrees. You can see the gleaming white travertine terraces of Pamukkale, located next to the ruins of Hierapolis. The extraordinary effect is created when water from the hot springs loses carbon dioxide as it flows down the slopes, leaving deposits of limestone.

    The layers of white calcium carbonate, built up in steps on the plateau, gave the site the name Pamukkale (cotton castle). After the tour you will be taken back to Harbour, airport or your hotel in Kusadasi or Izmir.
