Upon your arrival to the Cardak Airport (Airport code is DNZ ) , will meet you with a sign on which your name is written.After meeting, We lead you to Aphrodisias which is an ancient city nearby Karacasu, Aydin Turkey. It was established by the name of Goddess Aphrodit. Aphrodisias is one of the greatest sites in Turkey. It’s the ruins at Ephesus that generally get most of attention when it comes to the ancient sites of Turkey. But, in many ways, Aphrodisias is far superior.The site stretches out over a large area, it’s been extremely well preserved or restored, and it’s easy to lose yourself in the moment because it doesn’t have the large tourist crowds it probably deserves.Imagining life in the Aphrodisias of old is not difficult. It truly is a sight to behold.
In Aphrodisias you can see lot of structures made of marble such as Tetrapylon. Stadium of Aphrodisias which is one of the best preserved stadium in Anatolia with a 30,000 spectator capacity. The Temple of Aphrodite, Odeon, Agora , Baths of Hadrian,The Theatre and Sebasteion.
After the ruins, we can visit Aphrodisias Museum. Opened to visitors in 1979, the museum is near the ancient city of Aphrodisias, and only the pieces taken out from the excavations in Aphrodisias are exhibited.
Lunch in Aphrodisias and proceed to Pamukkale Turkey.
The ancient city of Hierapolis is known as the “Holy City” on account of its several temples and the other religious structures.The site is famous for its hot water springs and spectacular travertine hills which are above the plateau where the modern Pamukkale village is located. Your first visit will be Roman Theatre which is incredibly well preserved with the capacity of 20.000 seats.Then we go to Antique Pool (Pools of Cleopatra).It's the most atmospheric hot spring experience you'll ever have, with fantastic scattering of ancient marble columns in the water.
Then you visit Pamukkale(Cotton Castle).It was inspired by the foamy white hillside created as a result of the sedimentation of hot calcareous water coming down the cliff.The water is in calcium hydrocarbonate as it comes out of the spring.When it gets in touch with the outside air,it cools down and the precipitation settles down on the ground. The site is unique and has exceptional beauty with the formation of shallow pools and sequences of cascades down the slope.
After our visit Hierapolis and the unique cascades, we transfer you to Denizli Cardak airport.
