Day 10 - Pamukkale - Sardis - Izmir (B, L, D)

In the morning we visit Pamukkale, "The Cotton Castle," with its snow-white terraces formed by thermal waters cascading down the hillside. We next drive to Sardis, the capital of ancient Lydia, where, among all of the many ruins, we pay special visits to the Temple of Cybele and Diana (later transformed into a church), the famous 3rd century synagogue, and the gymnasium. After lunch we get to see the “Golden River” of Pactalos. We continue on to Izmir for dinner and our overnight stay at our hotel.
