Visiting: Pamukkale, Hierapolis

Duration: 11 hours

As you walk out of Izmir Harbour, please locate your guide who will be holding your name placard, ready to transport you around 3 hours inland to one of Turkey's most famous sights - the “Cotton Cliffs” of Pamukkale and the ruins of Hierapolis.

The World Heritage listed site of Pamukkale is a landscape of white terraces that have been formed over thousands of years as water rich in minerals, chalk and limestone cascades down the mountain. In Turkish, Pamukkale means 'Cotton Castle', hence the nickname it is given. Although most of its travertines are now protected, there are some areas where you can walk and swim.

Above Pamukkale lie the ancient ruins of Hierapolis, also listed as a World Heritage Site. During the 2nd century, Pamukkale was a popular spa retreat for people to cure their ailments and the town of Hierapolis blossomed with retirees enjoying their final years of life. We will spend time wandering among its ruins, including the well-preserved Roman built amphitheatre that is said to be one of the steepest in the world. 


Lunch is not included in the cost of the tour. We will suggest options for local Turkish restaurants and provide ample time for you to have a sit-down lunch.
