Pamukkale

4.1
Hot Springs · Ruins · Theaters
A popular spa since the second century BCE, the modern city of Pamukkale continues to draw worldwide attention with its hot springs and travertines--naturally formed calcite bathing pools. World Heritage status makes the area one of the country's most visited tourist destinations, boasting a temperate climate for most of the year. The remains of the ancient Greco-Roman city of Hierapolis sit right above the otherworldly travertines, providing history buffs with a chance to briefly visit ancient times. Pamukkale can get extremely crowded with day-trippers arriving for a quick swim, but you can avoid them by visiting the travertines at sunset, the quietest time of day. Take stress off the schedule by using our Turkey trip maker.
