Our first stop of the day will be at the Red Springs of Karahayit, where the water is coloured red as a result of the high iron content in the water. We will then enter Hierapolis through the North Gate, and make our way through the site, stopping to visit the following points of interest along the way:
You will also have free time to visit the Cleopatra Antique Pool (entrance fee extra) where you can swim over ancient Roman columns that fell into the pool because of an earthquake thousands of years ago.
