Day 1: Departure
Early morning departure at 05:30 with a pick-up from your centrally located Belek hotel, first stop will be in Korkuteli (approx. two hours after departure) for breakfast. As it is a considerably long journey from Belek (around four hours), there will be a total of several stops to make your trip as smooth as possible in our air-conditioned comfort vehicle.
Last stop before lunch will be in Denizli (the centre of Turkish textile), the nearest big city to Pamukkale where you will enjoy stunning panoramic views. Next is buffet lunch at a local restaurant in surroundings of Pamukkale where you can have a peek at the stunning white terraces from a distance.
Upon arrival in Pamukkale, your first visit is to the ruins of the ancient city of Hierapolis which includes an amphitheatre, great city walls, bath houses and necropolis and where you can find out about the history and culture of this unique location. Due to the neighbouring divine white terraces of travertines and historical values of the ancient city, Hierapolis was added to UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list in 1988.
After your cultural tour, have a walk on the terraces of carbonate minerals left by flowing water and bathe in the natural pools of hot spring water. At a near location to Hierapolis ruins, there is the ancient pool called ‘’Cleopatra’s Pool’’ where you can soak in at an additional charge.
Your first day ends after your check-in at your hotel in Pamukkale which includes dinner.
