We are still in the Aegean Turkey where an abundance of history rested in Western Anatolia. Our destination is moving from the Southern Aegean where there is Denizly, the inland city as a hub to Roman sites such as Pamukkale and Hierapolis, to the Northern Aegean where Bergama is located. Bergama is known for its archaeological ruins from the ancient Roman city of Pergamon. It is another ancient city which is not as crowded as Selçuk or Ephesus.
After strolling around the gorgeous turquoise pools of Pamukkale, let’s go further to the ancient city which is definitely different to others in Turkey. This ancient city named Hierapolis, which literally means “Holy City”, is just located on the top of Pamukkale where is high enough to see Denizli town in 20 km distance and the Hierapolis was totally destructed after several earthquakes. Later, its ruins were designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
