Full description
Upon your pick-up time from your hotel or port, meet with your guide and be transferred to Aphrodisias, the first stop of your tour. It is one of the oldest sacred sites in Turkey. Dedicated to the ancient Mother Goddess and then the Greek goddess Aphrodite, it was the site of the magnificent Temple of Aphrodite and the home of a renewed school for marble sculptures. The Temple of Aphrodite later became a Christian basilica through an impressive swapping of columns. Today, the Temple of Aphrodite is well-preserved and partially restored. It is not hard to imagine its ancient splendor. Aphrodisias also offers ruins of a large theater, a stadium and other structures, as well as an on-site museum displaying artifacts. Join lunch, rest for a while and then head to Pamukkale (cotton castle). Here you will visit the white terraces of Pamukkale, located next to the ruins of Hierapolis. The extraordinary look of the terraces 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). Unfortunately, but understandably, visitors are no longer allowed to walk on the terraces in order to protect them from damage. Then you will walk to the ancient city of Hierapolis and visit its necropolis, theater, fountain and St. Philip Church. At the end of the tour enjoy a transfer back to your accommodation.
