Welcome! I am your virtual tour guide around the world. I have prepared for you an overview of the full-day tour to Pamukkale and Hierapolis from Alanya.
Review and Facts:
Pamukkale meaning 'cotton castle' is a marvelous natural wonder, a must-see attraction in Turkey. Join a 1 day trip from Alanya to see the stunning white travertines, to swim in the hot springs and discover the ruins of an ancient city Hierapolis.
The closest city to Pamukkale is Denizli, there you will stop to enjoy the beautiful panoramic view.
On arrival to Pamukkale first discover the ruins of Hierapolis (amphitheater, city walls, bathhouses, necropolis, etc.) to learn more about the history and culture of this area. Then you can walk on the white travertines enjoying the full beauty of this natural wonder and swim in its natural pools with the hot spring water. Not far from the travertines there is an ancient pool called Cleopatra's pool.
Because of the glorious white travertine and historical values of Hierapolis Ancient City Pamukkale was added to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage (1988).
On the way back you will pass Denizli one more time and stop for some shopping (textile / leather shop and onyx fabric). You will have dinner at a local restaurant and after drive directly till Alanya. There will be the last stop before you come back to your hotel.
