  • It's true that some pools don't have water anymore, but some still do! The place is still a wonder and amazing. I was astonished and impressed by the huge and white place. You have to walk bare feet.....  more »
  • You walk through the tranvanter by bare feets feeling the thermal water underneath. View is amazing and atmosphere is great. Strongly advise to see the ruins from the ancient city at the top.  more »
  • We wade from pool to pool, from one corner to another corner. Some could not roll up their tight long trousers, had their pants wet. The floor of the pools can be slippery. Don't spend too much time.....  more »

  • Amazing and beautiful pools with light blue water pools with clay. Simply stunning views and experience. These pools are in steps one after the other however the temperature of the pools was bit cold and stones are slippery so one needs to be extra careful . You require the full day to enjoy the thermal pools, ancient pool and the ruins as 2 3 hours are not enough ...do remember to wear glasses
  • Beautiful landscape, clean and amazing heritage
  • Most breathtaking place ever. Be wary of the heat and long walk up to get there, wear flops and then you can remove them once you reach the running springs. It is an uphill walk so perhaps choose a cooler day to go
  • One of the best places I have ever seen.
  • Breathtakingly beautiful travertines
