Pamukkale-Hierapolis Tour With A Private Guide
You will be picked up from your hotel or port. Then driven to Pamukkale which is the center of natural thermal spring waters with healing properties. Due to the chemical properties in the water, pure white colored travertines and stepped water terraces have been created on the mountain slope. It is for its resemblance to cotton piles that it is called "Cotton Castle" in Turkish. Visit the travertines and the Ancient City of Hierapolis which has the biggest Nekropol with 1200 gravestones in Anatolia. The sacred pool also is one of the highlights of the site. There shallow thermal waters ripple over a wonderful scattering of ancient roman ruins which lie beneath. Transfer back to your hotel or to the airpoort after the tour.

The city of Hierapolis, which was founded on this site in the 2nd century B. C. , differs from all other ancient cities in being located, not on earth or rock, but on solid limestone layers formed by limestone water that flowed for centuries over this raised level plateau. "Hierapolis" means "sacred city", and according to Stephanus of Byzantium the city was given this name because of the large number of temples it contained. Hierapolis, the city of temples, but it seems reasonable to assume that this not the original meaning of the name. Today, the theatre, the Apollo temple and the necropolis are the most important places to see in Hierapolis.

Celcuk very friendly & knowledgeable - especially about history & Turkey in general. Appreciated him being flexible & great enjoyed his company! Loved Pamukkale and finally realized my dream of visiting. Cleopatra Bath crowded & nasty, but loved the Terraces and walking down to the very end. Celcut made a long day very enjoyable!
