1 Night 2 Days Ephessus Pamukkale Trip 

From Kalkan & Kas Turkey

 

The day begins early with a drive from guests' accommodation to Pamukkale, which is known as Cotton Castle. On the way, we stop for a break in Bekciler Village, then drive straight to Pamukkale. Depending on the time, we might have lunch before visiting Pamukkale.

After a lunch break, we will visit the Hierapolis ancient city which used to be a healing and health city for Roman soldiers.  Its amazing necropolis and Amphitheatre is definitely worth a visit.  During your free time, you can walk on the calcium terraces, which give the name to Pamukkale as Cotton Castle.

There is an ancient Cleopatra pool where guests can swim in a hot spring water pool full of columns.  During your free time, you can visit the museum (closed Mondays) which was once an ancient bath from Roman Empire.

After visiting the ancient city and Cotton Castle, we can stop in a textile factory (Denizli city is the capital for textile in Turkey) or a local weavers' association.

After this break, we'll dive directly to Selcuk which is the nearest town to Ephessus ancient city and stay overnight in our hotel in Selcuk town.

After breakfast, we leave the hotel and visit Ephesus.

While you are walking in the ancient city, the ruins will take you back in time. Its Celsius library, theatre, Odeon and house of slopes are worth visiting; all of them are unique and beautiful.

After Ephesus, we will drive to the Virgin Mary House followed by lunch at Selcuk.

After lunch, we will stop for a photo break near the Artemissia Temple which was one of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World.
