Aphrodisias was one of the leading cities of the era, surrounded by fertile fields where all kinds of foodstuffs were produced.

This natural phenomenon; designated a UNESCO Heritage site in 1988, with spectacular white calcium cliffs and beautiful turquoise blue pools is truly a sight to behold.

Pamukkale or ‘Cotton Castle’ when translated has been drawing tourists from all around the world to its thermal springs for more than 23 centuries. These Tours is one of the top Famous Turkey Trips. The Turkish name refers to the extraordinary surface of the snow-white cliffs, shaped over millennia by the accumulation of calcium deposited by mineral springs. Legend has it that the Cotton Castle formations are solidified cotton (the area’s principal crop) that was left out to dry by giants.

Dripping slowly down a vast mountainside, mineral-rich water foams and collects in bowls that terrace the decline down the mountainside spilling over petrified cascades of stalactites into milky pools below.
