Looks nice but it has to pay more to get into the pool. But it's nice to go inside and see the pool.

It was really cool thinking that you are swimming in a pool that Mark Anthony had built for Cleopatra. We arrive by gullet and jumped in. It did not take long before I had wounds on my feet from some very rough surfaces under the water. Just be sure you have something on your feet.

Pamukkale terraces are made of travertine, a sedimentary rock and the place offers a view of the historic city of Heirpolis. The place could be little slippery and steps may need to be watched. The Cleopatra pool which is a natural hot spring consists of minerals good for the body. It’s a relaxing to spend time in the pool and... More
