Visited the pools with my husband a few days back. Love the travertines, such a gorgeous white colour along with the green/blue of the hot water. I visited here in the extreme winter season, had to walk around without my shoes(you've to take off your shoes when walking on the travertines) and went to the bottom gate (not an easy... More

Not only the Thermal Pool is an exotic experience but rest of the garden is also a great place for travelers. Make sure you cover everything especially the colosseum

This place is like nowhere else. You can take off your shoes and jump to the pool in warm water. The water is blue.

There was no water !!!! Only a few pools were having small water. It didn't look like the pictures and videos we saw over internet. It was a disappointment actually.

Cotton castle is really like soft, white cotton; unbelievably beautiful scenery; soak your feet in the warm spring water that is around 35 degree C even in Winter; no shoes allowed to prevent damaging the calcium carbonate; bring a towel along to wipe your feet after the soak; go to the nearby Ancient Pool if you want to soak the...

This place was created by gods! It is insane the beauty that nature has to offer. It is so beautiful, especially on a sunny day. The water is pristine and it the lanscape straight out of a movie. Go early because it gets busy quickly. Don't forget your swimsuit, you would regret not being able to swim!!!!

Great experience in the snow! White rock and white snow made for an interesting landscape - not the blue pools we expected. Only a small area was open for paddling. Pools we saw were shallow, ideal for splashing about with rolled up jeans! You do need to take off shoes and socks, a bag for your belongings would help, as... More

Highly recommend you rest by putting your feet in the pool and the warm water will rejuvenate your spirit. Spare at least three hours to explore this place and try to breathe in as deep in your...
