Summary of The Day: Discover one of the most gorgeous natural wonders in Turkey with a day trip from Bodrum to the unique travertine terraces of Pamukkale (literally “Cotton Castles” in Turkish) and the ancient ruins of Hierapolis.
Heading out of Bodrum by air-conditioned coach, we'll head straight to Pamukkale, known as the “8th Wonder of the World” to those in the know. Here we'll explore the natural landscape of limpid pools, hot springs and travertine, terraces of carbonate minerals left by flowing water. Inscribed by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 1988, Pamukkale attracts some 2 million visitors every year. Get a view of the terraces from the hills on the opposite side of the valley in the town of Denizli.
Then, we'll play archaeologists and uncover the ruins of the ancient Greek-Roman city of Hierapolis, built on top of the “Cotton Castles” in the 2nd century BC. Wander through the remains of the Roman amphitheater and visit the former Turkish Bath, now converted to an archaeological museum.
We'll also encounter the pools where Cleopatra used to swim, the monumental tomb of the Christian apostle St. Philippe, and the Necropolis of Anatolia, filled with sarcophagi, most notably that of Marcus Aurelius Ammianos.
Afterwards we'll return to Bodrum.
