Meet a driver at your hotel for a morning departure, then travel through the Taurus Mountains on the trip to the modern-day city of Denizli.
Just beyond the city, you’ll find the city of Hierapolis, where everyone from the Attalids to ancient Romans came to soak in mineral pools. On a tour of the city, you’ll see Roman baths, a basilica, gymnasium, and a street lined with stone columns, and learn the story of the 1,000 sarcophagi in the city’s necropolis.
From the city, continue to Pamukkale, a landscape of cascading travertine pools, basins, waterfalls, and bristling mineral formations. Enjoy the view from a pool as you swim through the water, with the option to visit the Cleopatra Pools at your own expense.
Following your time at Pamukkale, visit a nearby restaurant for a buffet lunch, then begin the return trip to Kusadasi and Selcuk, with a stop for afternoon tea along the way. This day long tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
