1 Day Aphrodisias Tour from Denizli Or Pamukkale

The ruins of Aphrodisias are off-beaten tourist tracks. It is a well-preserved Greek/Roman city where several archeological excavations are still in progress since the site is far from well-known routes. It is easy to imagine the grandeur of the city in the past. Sebastion is the most exciting spot and is sought as nothing is like in other ancient cities. The Temple of Aphrodite; now only a few columns are left; the rest are used in the stadium, theater, and especially the 170-meter-long swimming pool.

Once three stories high, some columns and buildings lined both sides, and the Tetrapylon, probably the most famous image of Aphrodisias at the head of the main street towards the Temple of Aphrodite. The museum is also well worth a visit. One room, maybe 50 meters long, lined with dozens of carved sculptures and panels depicting stories from Greek mythology with very informative descriptions alongside, is fascinating.

Aphrodisias Ruin

Aphrodisias was named after Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of Love who had her unique cult image, the Aphrodite of Aphrodisias. The excavations have been going on since 1961, after Aphrodisias, which gained fame all over the Mediterranean world in Antiquity with its high-quality marble quarries and talented sculptors, was accidentally discovered by master photographer Ara Güler in 1958. Known as the most magnificent of the cities dedicated to Aphrodite, the goddess of Love and beauty in mythology, Aphrodisias took its place among the best sculptor centers of the Roman period.

Buildings such as the city pool, Tetrapylon Gate, Sebasteion Temple, ancient theater, and bath reflect Rome's magnificence, especially the stadium with a capacity of 30 thousand, which is shown among the best of its period, are the areas that attract the most attention. About 200 of the 1100 statues unearthed from the region are displayed in the ancient city. At the entrance of Aphrodisias, the face sculptures, some of which were made later, almost resemble a painting.

Aphrodisias Archaeological Museum

The museum, where sculptures from the excavations in the Aphrodisias Ancient City belonging to the Roman Empire period, which is on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List, are exhibited, takes its visitors on a journey in history and takes them 2,500 years ago. It is noteworthy that the elements of women, family, and mythology, called the "Aphrodisias school," were engraved on 300 sculptures, 80 of which were 3D relief sculptures made by the students of the sculpture school of the period.

Relief and statues that preserve their originality were placed in a specially made corridor inside the museum, as they faced the street in front of the Sebasteion Temple in the center of the city at the time they were made. An atmosphere of that day When we examine the sculptures in detail, more mythological scenes are described in marble, where the human anatomy reflects very well. It offers us sections from the lives of the emperors of that period. We see the victories of the emperors reflected in the reliefs. We will have a local lunch by Aphrodisias; after lunch, we will drive back to Denizli Cardak Airport.
