Gorgeous ruins and not to be missed. This has the largest natural amphitheatre in their modern world and it can hold 30,000 people. The name of the city is derived from the goddess of love, Aphrodite. A must see and the museum at the end.

Good Museum with huge collection fo marble sculptures depicting scenes from Roman history and Greek mythology. Grounds contains so many ruins that are well preserved. Stadium was huge. Highly recommended. Worth the detour from pamukkale. Less crowded and touristy

We went to Aphrodisias by ourselves. Did not require a guide, but did need transportation to get there. The guide books were enough for self guided tour at our own pace and comfort.
