Being tight with money I am still using my 1997 Rough Guide to Turkey which describes this site as 'the bleak melancholy of the meager remains accentuated by tractor furrows and power pylons'. This is now a vibrant site where under a meter of top...More

Although it's very close to Denizli town, few people visit these beautiful ruins. The site needs work, archaeologists are still working on restoration and digging new spots. There's few information, no maps, so before you go, I recommend to read a book or the articles...More

From the amphitheatres it takes you down to the Pamukkale mountain... the geothermal pools where you can relax and enjoy your afternoon, this is a place you can spend a lazy afternoon at.

This is a must visit site for those interested in history. To see the opulence that once was being revealed. Marvel at the structure forms and wonder how such construction was carried out. Wear good footwear as the paved streets are tough on the feet.

Visited the ruins as part of an excursion. Our guide Fatih was really good and very knowledgeable about the ruins. Interesting to learn / hear about history.

We rented a car in Izmir. Drove to Pamukkale, Laodicea, Kusadasi & Ephesus. For us it worked quite well and was the best option.
