Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

For any sane person with a semblance of historical attraction and consumption, this site will and should overwhelm you. It gives you simultaneous feeling of utter amazement and gloominess straightaway. The grandeous nature and the history that the whole place oozes is just outrageously good!

I'd say its comparable to any Greek amphitheatre around Europe and deserves more traffic.

Visited Hieropolis and Pammukkale as part of small group tour
Hieropolis was a HUGE city and is quite spread out.his part is nearer to the pools and the entrance so is nearest to visit.But the whole site is fascinating and really needs a whole day to wander around the cemetary,the market area,the museum to fully appreciate the civilisation of the ancient world.
BEWARE.Careful if walking off pathways with anything but thick soled shoes.Ground hugging plant has giant spikey bits like caltrops that come out in the soles of shoes and can reach in as far as your foot!!

The amphitheater is definitely stunning and there is a lot to see here. You cannot go all the way down to the stage at present, but you can get down to about halfway down the stands and that is close enough for a good view.

When we got to this spot, I initially thought this was all there was to see in Heiropolis and I was dead wrong. Definitely go beyond the amphitheater and check out the martyrium of St. Philip and the remains of the agora. Signage is not great, but this site is much bigger than it looks at first.

Although it took 3 hours from Kusadasi to get there, it was definitely worth it! Take sunscreen, even if you don’t usually get burnt. We went in April & it got up to 30C! We did not realise the Hierapolis, Pamukkale & Cleopatra’s pool are all on the same grounds. Cleopatra’s pool was €15 Euros & there is an ATM onsite. This is to cover a key locket to keep your things in.

Wear comfortable shoes (lots of walking), take flip flops, swimwear (if you want to swim) and a towel. You cannot wear any shoes onto the mineral site (Pamukkale) so if your feet are sensitive, take care. Some areas can be slippery but it is a must. Some pool areas are warm and others are cool.

We didn’t swim in Cleopatra’s pool as we did not have enough time to do it all. You can rent golf carts & other types of vehicles or a mini van to get you around the vast site but it is pricey. The hierapolis is one of the best ones we have seen & we have seen several in Greece, Rhodes and Rome. This was really put back together over 40 years by the Archaeologists. So amazing! Enjoy!!

The ruins are well spread out. Yet the highlight is still the huge amphitheater. But be careful if you want to explore, since the steps going down or traversing can be quite steep. Great for photo ops. Or just appreciating work of human kind during the Roman era.

Roman amphitheatre is definitely a highlight. Keep going towards the North to find some great roman streets with columns on each side. The site is pretty big so walking takes a pretty long time so budget that out.

you'd need 3hrs+ if you wanna visit both the travertine pools and the ruins because the pools are hard to walk on so you go very slowly and carefully there - wastes a lot of time. these ruins are far and you have to walk uphill so if you wanna see everything in this complex set aside 3-4 hrs. you can also do paragliding.

It was a little bit of a walk up a hill to get to it but definitely worth it. The theatre has been kept in a good condition and was an incredible view. Lots of people taking photos which made it awkward to walk around the top. Still an incredible sigh to see.

Well preserve and grand even though it is a smaller theatre. Look out for the depth of each level, it give the audience a good view of the stage and the view beyond. I particularly love this Hierapolis theatre out of the 3 I visited in Turkiye. It was lovely to just sit on the steps and soak in the history and view! Totally worth the climb up for the view and grandeur of it all!
