Recognised as a world heritage sight, Pamukkale & Hierapolis are the main reason why visitors flock Denizli. From afar, it looks like snow filled hills. Please take note, wearing shoes in the water is prohibited to protect the deposits. As so, do bring a bag to keep your shoes, wet tissues to clean your feet and a small towel to... More

A very interesting place, once a major Greek city. A wonderfully preserved/restored theatre. There is also a nice indoors museum with statues and grounds full of antiquities (gravestones, temple capitels etc.). Cleopatra's Pools with warm thermal waters.

This was the second time I have visited Pamukkale. My first visit 20 years ago, it looks like a lot changed since then. The grounds were well kept and we get to take some awesome photos of Pamukkale (the cotton castle) as well as the Hierapolis. If you are into travertine's and thermal spring waters and historical roman theaters and... More

We (me and my 2 daughters) did Pamukkale and Hierapolis trip on Jan 2, 2017. We booked the trip via Viator and did it with Neon tour. We picked up from the hotel by the driver only and the tour guide would be picked up about an hour later on the way to Pamukkale. We booked this trip in group... More

To be in the travertines in winter was really crazy but awesome. Walking without shows upon snow, ice and pools was extraordinary. Everybody must to do it!

walk around the open area and enjoy the sights of the ruins; after that go to the cotton castle for a soak for the legs, and the ancient pool for a swim.

The area is located just behind the cotton castle, and you have to pass it first before for convenience and to give you more time to enjoy the castle in the sky. The hierapolis ruins are a unique place on its own, and is included in the UNESCO world heritage. You have to pay the entrance fee first which is... More

Lovely place! We have to walk barefoot up the salty mountain, so it got a bit cold at one point but it was totally worth it! It's a shame they don't let the water run its course though.. if you wanna go around hierapolis too, it'll take you the whole day to see it properly! The ruins are splendid!

The travertine mountain is unique and beautiful, the Roman city ruins and museum very impressive, but... Swimming in Hieropolis' ancient Roman baths is literally a dream-like experience. Float above and swim under fallen Roman columns and Corinthian capitals in crystalline, body-temperature water, slightly carbonated to tingle the skin. Don't forget your goggles so you can examine the columns underwater as... More

This destination has everything. It is a UNESCO World heritage site. Hierapolis has well preserved remains of Greek, Roman, and Byzantine times although artifacts from Hittite and Persian times have been unearthed here. There are no end of buildings, colonnades, chapels. and mausoleums to wander about in. The area of the remains is large enough for a shuttle service but... More
