About Aphrodisias

Aphrodisias is one of Turkey’s finest archaeological sites. The city was named after Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. The city was built near a marble quarry, eventuating in extensive exploitation, with the city even became known for its marble statues. Unfortunately, the site is located in an earthquake zone and has suffered extensive damage over the years.
MAIN SIGHTS
TEMPLE OF APHRODITE

The Temple of Aphrodite was a focal point of the town until it was transformed into a Christian basilica in 500 AD. The site is home to many sculptures, with full-length ones being discovered in the Agora. There are also sarcophagi in various locations, with garland and column decorations.
BOULEUTERION
The Bouleuterion was preserved and undamaged for 1000 years, as it lay hidden in a bath of mud. Its open plan consists of an auditorium, a shallow stage, numerous entrances at ground level, and several stairways. The estimated seating capacity is 1750.
SEBASTEION
It is thought that the Sebasteion was originally a temple for the Roman emperors. Although according to 1st-century scriptures it was dedicated to Aphrodite, the Divine Augusti, and the People. In its heyday, it was a three-story high double colonnade, decorated with Greek friezes.
STADIUM
The stadium is 270m long and the biggest and best preserved in the Mediterranean. It was used for athletic events until it was badly damaged by an earthquake. After this extensive damage, the stadium was converted to a theatre.

Laodicea 
(Laodikya, Laodikeia), 6 km (4 miles) north of Denizli and 1 km (6/10 mile) east of the road to Pamukkale (map) near the village of Goncalı, is an extremely old city that is being “born again” through archeological restoration.
You can visit Laodicea from Denizli in 3 hours or less, whether or not you have a car.
Excavations here have revealed artifacts dating from 3500 BC (Late Chalcolithic) to 3000 BC (Early Bronze Age). The city’s name comes from the Seleucid king Antiochus ii, who named it for his wife Laodike in the 3rd century BC when it was thriving. Later controlled by the kings of Pergamum, it was willed to the Roman Empire and thrived again from the 4th to 6th centuries. Its importance then numbered it among the Seven Churches of Revelation.
Set in an earthquake zone, it was ruined and restored many times, but by the early 1200s it was only farmer’s fields
