Full description
On this 1-day tour from Marmaris you will visit Pamukkale, known as the 8th Wonder of the World. Meaning “cotton castle” in Turkish, this natural formation contains hot springs and travertine, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. Because of the glorious white travertine and historical value, Pamukkale was added to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage in 1988. Pamukkale can be seen from the hills on the opposite side of the valley in the town of Denizli, 20 kilometers away. On the top of this white “castle”, which is a total of 2,700 meters long, 600 meters wide, and 160 meters high, the ancient city of Hierapolis was built. Here you can visit an ancient Roman amphitheater, the historical museum which was formerly a Turkish bath, the ancient Cleopatra swimming pool, the monumental tomb of Saint Philippe, and the most magnificent Necropolis of Anatolia.

3 hours was not enough time to see all of Hierapolis and Pamukkale.

Long trip there and back for a 3 hour site time, Absolutely loved exploring Hierapolis.... what an amazing site. And the information provided around it about each area was very good. Make sure you pack good footwear. Pamukkale was quite dry at this time of the year but still very busy with tour groups, can imagine that July and August is hectic. Still very beautiful and an amazing natural wonder. Next time I go, I will hire a car so I can wander around at my own pace and not feel like I was on the amazing race.

Von Marmaris fährt man ca. 3 Stunden bis zur Pamukkale. Auf dem Hinweg 2 Stunden Fahrt. Dann ein Zwischenstopp mit Frühstück. Dann eine weitere Stunde Fahrt bis man ankommt. 110 TL zusätzlich Eintritt un das Gelände betreten zu können. 100 TL kostet es, wenn man zusätzlich im Kleopatra Bad schwimmen möchte. Pamukkale sehr beeindruckend und auf jeden Fall sehenswert. Vor Ort hat man ca. 3 Stunden Zeit und alles eigenständig zu erkunden. Anschließend fährt man zu einer Steinfabrik. Danach geht's zum Mittagessen (in Buffetform, Auswahl Okay, Getränke kosten extra) Als nächstes geht's zur Lederfabrik. Meiner Meinung nach ein sehr unnötiger Stopp, dort gabs erst eine Modenshow und dann wurde sehr eindringlich versucht dir etwas anzudrehen. Lederjacken für mindestens 500 € oder noch deutlich teurer. Danach geht's dann zurück nach Marmaris (3 Stunden Fahrt) wir waren etwa um 19 Uhr zurück im Hotel. Schöner empfehlenswerter Ausflug. Guter Preis

The trip was a fantastic day out, a long but great day. We didn't know about the trip to the factories which we would have probably rather not have done and just had longer in Pamukkale & hierapolis.
