There's nothing quite like the unique experience of Pamukkale. It is known as the "Cotton Castle" as it boasts dazzling white, petrified castles and home to Turkey's famous thermal springs. Bring along your swimming suit and bathe in the therapeutic pools. Also visited is the Roman city of Hierapolis and the Apollo Temple.
Today is a combination of history and nature. In the morning you will leave Izmir behind and drive to Pamukkale.

This amazing place is a beautiful and spectacular natural site, unique in the world with its fairylike, dazzling white, petrified lime cascades. There you will see the thermal spring water laden with calcareous salt, plunging down the mountain side which has created this natural formation of stalactites, cataracts and basins. The thermal water has been used since the Roman period for its therapeutic powers.

Next you will visit the Roman city of Hierapolis, which is not located not on earth or rock, but on solid limestone layers formed by limestone water that flowed for centuries over this raised level plateau. The name means "sacred city", and according to Stephanus of Byzantium the city was given this name because of the large number of temples it contained.

While here you will visit the Apollo Temple competing with Delphi, Monumental Nympheum (a 4th century Basicala) and the Theatre. After visiting the best preserved Necropolis, return to Izmir.
