Pamukkale, 20190 Pamukkale/Denizli, Turkey
From Istanbul to the Cotton Castles of Pamukkale in a DayStroll barefoot past the cotton castles of Pamukkale, then wander the ancient ruins of the Hierapolis, before finishing the day soaking your cares and wrinkles away in Cleopatra’s thermal pool. It’s all possible in a long day trip from Istanbul.
If you’ve always wanted to see the calcium travertines of Pamukkale or experience the so-called, anti-aging magic of the ancient thermal pool, then pop your head into a travel agency in Sultanahmet and ask for a quote for a day tour to Pamukkale, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The price will vary depending on the size of the group, but it should include return airfares to/from Denizli, private guiding of the travertines and Hierapolis ruins, lunch, and entrance to the pool. Shop around for the best deal.
