“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Yo ucan visit this site in a day trıp from Istanbul - fly down early morning and back late at night. We loved the walk up through the thermal baths, looking back down on the view and then strolling through the amazing old roman ruins, before a final walk back down through the thermal pools.

“A must see”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

I agree with all the other reviews. We were blown away by this awesome natural spectacle. We didn't realise that you got a 2 for 1 deal with the terraces leading up to the ruins of Hieropolis. The added extra was the spectacular display of rose gardens on either sides of the walkways which are meticulously kept by the gardeners. Added to that is that you can freely walk around the excavations without the crowds of Ephesus as it is so spaced apart.
You should be aware that you have to take off your shoes so bring your own bag to carry them in.

“Warm Water and Warmer Guide!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Definitely a must for anyone's trip to Turkey! Nizam, our tour guide, had us in stitches the whole time, so the tour was not just informative, but very fun! We saw the Roman amphitheater on the hilltop above the travertines. Although it started to rain, we were still able to enjoy the naturally heated pools. It was fairly crowded the day we visited, so if you go during high tourist season, be prepared for massive crowds. You are allowed to take a dip in Cleopatra's Pool, but for an admission fee. Walking downhill will take your breath away when the travertine pools come into view. Pictures don't do justice to what you see all around. The travertines can be a little slippery at first, but oh so wonderful when your toes hit that warm water. You can forgo the pedicure- the ridges in the travertines will leave your feet feeling like they had their own Turkish Bath!
