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.

The best part of this gorgeous place is that is NOT CROWDED at all, I guess the mass of tourists only stays doing the main things in Pamukkale but this place definitely worth a visit. If you are in Pamukkale and you don't have a...More

Our hotel recommended we visit Laodicea and explained it has only opened up to the public in recent years, excavation of site only been underway about 10 years (Turkeys best kept secret?). Well worth a visit, so different to Pamukkale site but only about 15-20...More

The surrounding scenery around Laodicea is BREATHTAKING! The site itself is quite good considering the price (10TL). It is not as stunning as Ephesus but it is much better than Smyrna (which is also 10TL). If you have a car, you can drive through most...More

This is such a cheap place to get into (10 TL) and it is so worth it, especially if you like exploring on your own. It's definitely not an entire day adventure, but you could easily combine it with Pammukkale/Heiropolis. Some people complained about the...More

This archeological site has potential but it can be so much better. Of short route with the foremost sites almost 60% is not accessible due to excavation works (but there was no one working there at all). As for the toilets...we have seen many public...More

It's quieter, but it has the same splendour. You will get views of the Street to Syria, and Ephesos, still with columns, there is an old basilic, a theater for 8000 spectators, and nature gives it a special, imaginary flavour, which reminded us of... Narnia!

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