Aphrodisias – The temple of Aphrodite dates from the 3rd century BC and the city was built one century later. We were the only tour group visiting this idyllic site that day. Such a treasure and such historic significance.
Organic Farm Breakfast & Ancient City of Aphrodisias
Experience a traditional Turkish breakfast feast at a tranquil organic village farm before we drive to Aphrodisias, one of the largest, best preserved archeological sites in Turkey and another UNESCO World Heritage Site. Named in honor of Aphrodite, goddess of love, this city was a center for sculpture, arts, literature, and religion. Many of this city’s monuments are still standing, including the 30,000 seat stadium. Elaborate sculptural details we see date back to the 1st and 2nd century AD. Continue to Pamukkale where our hotel tonight has its own outdoor thermal pools
