At Aphrodisias, explore the ruins of the ancient Greek city named after the goddess of love, Aphrodite, which became famous for its abundance of marble and talented sculptors. What was once the capital of Lydia province is now considered one of the most well-preserved of its type in the Mediterranean. Be sure to take a look at the imposing stadium, which once seated over 30,000 for various athletic events. Examine the other remaining structures that have been arranged to replicate a small city: the temple of Aphrodite, the monumental gateway, the Bouleuterion council house, and the Sebasteion. Stop by the museum on site to see some of the most remarkable remaining marble sculptures. Take time for an audio tour if you would like more information. If you decide to drive to the ruins, park in the lot below the entrance and wait for one of the shuttles to take you to the site.

  • We visited the scope of our trip to Pamukkale. In some of the navigation, the bloody terror, you can go through. One silly application, on security grounds, not your car in the parking lot next to the box office, 100 m away because they wanted to park the land empty, that you get the Gendarmes. Other than that, the design of the Museum is gorgeous, thanks to the sponsor. Flashsız photo shoot. Works as well as inform. Introductory information and travel itinerary of works outside routing is insufficient. Before you go, why this is important with regard to your information required, otherwise, stone, Earth and you don't realize the importance of, say, the sculptures. One of 50 places to see before you die. ...

  • It's amazing place and nobany knows about this place it's very quite no tourist around
  • A little jewel, a must see!
  • One of the best archaeological sites in Turkey. If you're in the area, this is definitely worth a visit. There are a number of well preserved parts to the site - and the enormous stadium is truly a highlight. It takes a few hours to walk around the large complex and see it all properly.
  • There was a sculpture school in the ancient times there. So, see the sculptures in the museum. I still can't forget them. You can even see the statues of well-known people, figures, philosophers of the history.
