It was the home of St. Paul between 54 and 57 AD. Nearby we visit Virgin Mary’s House on a wooded hilltop where it was miraculously discovered. Finally we stop at the restoration of St. John’s Basilica where according to legend, he was buried. For evening we continue on to Pamukkale, the white “Cotton Fortress” lime cascades of the Roman spa Hierapolis. Enjoy a leisurely bath in the warm mineral waters of your hotel’s pool. ( B LD )
