Explore ancient thermal spas and take a dip yourself at Hierapolis, a World Heritage Site. Originally a thermal spa in 2nd century BCE, the Greek ruins of baths, temples, and monuments are still visible today at Hierapolis. Visit the on-site Hierapolis Archaeology Museum to see tombs, monuments, and ruined theatre artifacts. Nearby Pamukkale is a diverse arrangement of hot springs--some for swimming and some for scenic appreciation. One notable area, sometimes referred to as Cleopatra's swimming pool, features a set of tiered travertines on top of which bright aquamarine water gathers.

A swim in the ancient pool (Cleopatra's pool) is a must. Just so you can say you've done it! I suggest arriving as early as possible too! We were the first and only ones swimming for... about 5 minutes... until a bus load of people rolled in.
History in all its grandeur. One cannot help but marvel at this great historical structure. Just imagining how it must have been there in old times with kings and princes and their subjects sitting all around on these steps is invigorating.
