This remarkably well-kept remains of Greek-Roman era with full of supreme combination of human-made structures and natural wonders. Its strictly forbidden to walk with your shoes or slippers to avoid damage over this delicate white deposits but this is a really good thing as you let this surface message your soles while walking its warm healing waters grazing your toes. If you are not willing to swim, you can simply rollup your pants but its recommended to wear your swim suits to splash its mineral waters during your hiking and you may also succumb to your childlike instincts and jump to these natural infinity pools to the best of your ability. Your guide will give you some free time to linger on these White terraces made of limestone deposites and take some pictures for making your family and friends jealous.
The original Hellenistic constructions had been devastated by earthquakes in the first century so majority of the historical artifacts we will visit today are from the Roman era. The antique pool of Cleopatra(additional cost applies) offers us a rare opportunity to swim in warm healing water amongst the collapsed marble columns of Apollo (divine founder of the city) Temple which was toppled into the water after many successive earthquakes.
