Known as the "Cotton Castles", the landscapes and natural pools of Pamukkale are a truly unique setting. Fall in love with their enchanting beauty on this day trip from Kusadasi.
Pamukkale Day Trip
Having been picked up from your hotel in Kusadasi on the morning of your excursion, you'll set off to the city of Pamukkale, one of the most spectacular natural and monumental sites in this region of Turkey.
The first stop on your tour will be the archaeological site of Hierapolis. This ruins of this ancient town - whose name means Holy City in Ancient Greek - stands out for its extensive necropolis. As well as learning all about the history of the tombs, which are some of the biggest in Anatolia, you'll also see remains of the Roman Theatre. Despite thousands of years passing since its construction, you can still see how huge it was: there was room for up to 20,000 people in the audience!
Your route will then continue on to the Cotton Castles of Pamukkale, a natural wonder declared a World Heritage Site. The minerals left by flowing water have created snow-white terraces of limestone that look like clouds, earning it its name. You'll have free time here to explore the unique beauty of this natural phenomenon and, if you'd like, to make the most of its hot springs bathing in the natural pools (entrance not included).
Meet back up at the arranged time and head to a local restaurant where you'll indulge in a delicious traditional lunch. Then, after eating, you'll return to your hotel in Kusadasi at about 4 pm.
