    Hierapolis: It is believed that the king of Pergamum Eumenes II, discovered the city in 190 BC. It was called Hierapolis after the Amazon's Queen Hiera, the founder of Pergamum. Hierapolis was completely damaged by the earthquake in 60 A.D. during the time of Roman Emperor Nero. After the earthquake, the city changed into from its Hellenistic Style to a typical Roman City. In 80 A.D. St. Philip came to Hierapolis and was killed by the Jewish inhabitants. Hierapolis was handed by the Turks at the end of the 12th century A.D.

    Pamukkale: That means 'Cotton Castle' in Turkish, is known as 8th world wonder by Turkish people. The water which is flowing down the cliff of Pamukkale has changed the area into as white as cotton color, and hallowed this fantastic formation of stalactites and basins. Pamukkale is a very popular destination for a short visit, the wonderful white calcium pools, which hold to the side of a ridge, is one of the most famous picture postal card views of Turkey. It is the largest and most stunning example of elaborate calcium formation in the world, which dominates the landscape miles around. You will have a fantastic trip in this fabolous place for a day.  


    Theatre: It is a nice building from the Greeks, which is located on a hillside. It is nearly 91 meters high. It was started to be built in 62 A.D. just after the earthquake of 60 AD in the Flavius era. The cavea is 7 parts by 8 steps, and there are 50 seats. The Diozoma (a kind of passage) is in the middle of the cavea with a vomitorium with 2 vaults. There are 10 columns in front of the emperor box and orchestra, which are 3.66 meters high. The front door of the scene has 5 gates and 6 niches. Many statues were found during the excavations. There are marble embossments on the wall which is behind the scene. It is worth seeing if you are fancy to historical places.
     


    After the tour, you will be transferred back to the hotel or Kusadasi cruise port.
