Cappadocia - Pamukkale and Ephesus from Istanbul by Bus

You will be thrilled with history and nature on this tour. Our first visit will be Cappadocia with its valley, canyon, hills and unusual rock formation. Cappadocia is a work of art that was formed by the wind and water slowly chipping the rock in thousands of years. Pamukkale is another extraordinary region. Besides travertines, the great Roman amphitheater of Hierapolis should not be missed, and lies just above the travertines. Ephesus is an ancient Greek city and a large archaeological site, also famous for its Temple of Artemis. In Ephesus, you will walk down the well-preserved Roman streets, gaze at the mighty monuments, and soak up the ancient soul of this ruined city.
