Tour Description : Meet with your tour guide at Kusadasi or Izmir. Drive through the Aphrodisias Ancient site. Visit all historical place with accompany of professional guide. Aphrodisias is one of the oldest sacred sites in Turkey. Dedicated to the ancient Mother Goddess and then the Greek goddess Aphrodite, it was the site of a magnificent Temple of Aphrodite and the home of a renewed school of marble sculpture. The Temple of Aphrodite later became a Christian basilica through an impressive swapping of columns. Today, the Temple of Aphrodite is well-preserved and partially restored; it is not hard to imagine its ancient splendour. Aphrodisias also offers ruins of a large theatre, a stadium and other structures, as well as an on-site museum displaying artifacts. Join the lunch and rest for a while then drive through to Pamukkale (cotton Castle) Visiting to white Terraces, You can see the gleaming white travertine terraces of Pamukkale, located next to the ruins of Hierapolis. The extraordinary effect is created when water from the hot springs loses carbon dioxide as it flows down the slopes, leaving deposits of limestone. The layers of white calcium carbonate, built up in steps on the plateau, gave the site the name Pamukkale (cotton castle). Unfortunately, but understandably, visitors are no longer allowed to walk on the terraces in order to protect them from damage. Then walking to Hierapolis Ancient city, visit the Necropolis , Theatre , fountain, St.Philip Church. Afterwards you drive back to Izmir or Denizli airport or your hotel in Kusadasi, Izmir or Pamukkale.
