Ephesus and Pamukkale: Day Trip by Plane from Istanbul

2. Ephesus and Pamukkale: Day Trip by Plane from Istanbul

Enjoy a full-day package trip that takes you on a guided tour from Istanbul to 2 of Turkey’s most fascinating attractions: the ancient cities of Ephesus and Hierapolis. Spend a full day marveling at ancient, multi-cultural architecture and monuments without worrying about any of the details of traveling and organizing. You’ll start your day with pickup from your hotel in Istanbul, bright and early at 5:15 AM for a transfer to the airport for your 7:30 AM flight to Izmir. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted and brought to Ephesus to meet with your guide and take your Ancient City Tour. Ephesus is an iconic former-Greek city, built in the 10th century, famed for its temples, monuments, and theaters. Known as the commercial, religious, and social center of antiquity, this is sure to be the highlight to your whole visit to Turkey. Explore the city’s combination of Greek, Roman and Byzantine markers of civilization. Visit the Fountains of Trajan, Polio, the Temples of Hadrian and Domition, the Library of Celcius, the Great Theater (with capacity for 24,000 spectators), the Temple of Artemis, and the House of the Virgin Mary.   On the second half of your day, you’ll be taken to Pamukkale, known for its natural thermal spring waters. Pamukkale means “cotton castle” in Turkish—due to the chemical properties of the water, pure white colored travertines and stepped water terraces have been created on the mountain’s slope, resembling piles of cotton. Visit the ancient city of Hierapolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The highlight of this site will be the Sacred Pool, which you can enter if you choose. There, shallow thermal waters ripple over a wonderful scattering of ancient Roman ruins that lie beneath. You’ll also see its Necropolis, which contains 1200 gravestones, including that of Marcus Aurelius Ammianos.   After your tour, you’ll be transferred back to Denizli Airport for your 7:00 PM flight to Istanbul, and then taken back to your hotel.

Full-Day Pamukkale Tour from Kusadasi

3. Full-Day Pamukkale Tour from Kusadasi

The rock formations of Pamukkale (literally, "Cotton Castle") are a series of white terraces saturated with dissolved calcium bicarbonate, bubbling up from the feet of the mountains beyond. As the water flows over the edge of the plateau and cools, carbon dioxide is given off and calcium carbonate precipitates as hard chalk, or travertine. The spring emerges in the middle of the ancient resort city of Hierapolis (the ruins themselves are worthy of a stop as well). Sadly, the travertine that makes up the Pamukkale is gradually turning from white to yellow, and is even thought to be drying up. Thirsty hotels are blamed by the government, which has demolished many of them. This is good for the Pamukkale, but it makes finding a hotel increasingly difficult. Most stay in Pamukkale Koyu. The Hierapolis archaeological site lies west of Pamukkale Koyu. Its main features include a temple of Apollo and the adjacent Plutonium, a cavern emitting a deadly sulphur and carbon dioxide gas. East of here is a restored Roman ampitheatre, dating from the second century AD. Most of the stage buildings and their elaborate reliefs remain intact. An interesting part of the city is the colonnaded street, once extending almost 1km to a series of monumental portals. Today, only the most northerly, a triple arch flanked by towers and dedicated to the Emperor Domitian in 84 AD, still stands. Just south of the arch is the elaborate tomb of Flavius Zeuxis. This is only the first of more than a thousand tombs that constitute the full necropolis, the largest in Asia Minor.

Pamukkale: Full Day Tour from Kusadası or Selcuk

7. Pamukkale: Full Day Tour from Kusadası or Selcuk

Enjoy a relaxing splash in the hot springs of Hierapolis, one of the sacred sites of Turkey, dating back thousands of years. They were used in Roman times because of their therapeutic powers. Also admire the white limestone terraces, known as travertines of Pamukkale.  Pamukkale has always been a very popular settlement, because of its hot springs, which are believed to have healing powers. Through this, the city became the center of a pagan cult in antiquity. Now it has transformed into an outstanding spa resort. The city was on the borders of the ancient states of Caria, Lycia and Phrygia and had a mixed population. Citizens were usually involved in the wool and textile industry. Its beautiful terraces were formed by running warm spring water. The temperature is around 35 C, containing calcium bicarbonate. When the water loses its carbon dioxide it leaves limestone deposits. These reveal themselves with different colours and shapes in the form of terraces with pools, overhanging surfaces and fascinating stalactite formations. Pamukkale takes its name from these formations.

What people are saying about Denizli Province

Unforgettable

Excellent guide, Muhmad made the trip worthwhile, I think the operator mistrusts when writing an email that the return was not included when it was, Pumakkele as a geological place is great, its valley is beautiful, how attraction for old people It is dangerous, floor with slippery seaweed and if you risk wearing a shoe that you want to wet because being barefoot is painful, Hieropolis is what is worth walking

I really liked the trip, the experience and the cities through which I did the tour, all the people from the agency and hotel staff, guides, and buses, were very friendly, they tried to make me always comfortable and happy with the service I definitely recommend it. The only thing they must take into account is the waiting time at the bus terminals to travel to each city.

We were picked up at the hotel on time. Very careful bus driver, the trip was great, no music the entire trip, very relaxing! A great private tour guide (we were the only two guests that day and still the tour was carried out very professionally) who spoke English very well and was able to answer all our questions. A very nice experience that we can definitely recommend.

It was one of my best trips during my stay in Turkey. The organization was excellent. I was picked up at the arranged time from my hotel. I was very lucky with professional guides John and Nizam, who were both friendly and helpful.

Our guide Meral was very informative abd fruendly. the tour was on time and was fun and cozy. we were not in a hurry but we were also able to see everything we wanted to see. would highly recommend it.
