Visit Hierapolis and Pamukkale on a full-day tour from the Fethiye region that explores spectacular hot springs and an ancient Roman spa city. Spend the morning in the stone ruins of Hierapolis, soak in the warm water of Pamukkale’s travertine hot springs, then hit the local stores for some afternoon shopping. This 10 hour Hierapolis and Pamukkale tour includes pickup and drop-off at hotels in Fethiye and selected areas, breakfast, and entrance fees at both sites.
Despite pick up at 6.30am, we arrived at Pamukkale at 11.30 due to an undesired and unannounced stop at a marble factory.
Climbing Pamukkale and visiting Hierapolis with more than 30°C has been hard: too hot, considering that the white around you doubles the heat and the reflexions.
Once on the top we had around 1 hour to bathe in the Ancient pool or visit Hierapolis, it was too hot and too little time to see everything and rest a bit in the shadow which is necessary due to the high temperature.
Same for lunch: just 30 minutes.
This is not the way I expect to enjoy my holidays or an amazing and unique place such as Pamukkale.
And the minivan had no air/con on the back, so we were really hot and sweating. Not really comfortable
