Duration: 8 hours
Cappadocia is a region in Central Anatolia, largely in Nevsehir Province. It is a "must see" region of exceptional natural wonders, in particular characterized by fairy chimneys and a unique historical and cultural heritage. Depart from the hotel at approx 09:30–10:00 hours and visit the Devrent Valley to see the unique fairy-chimneys. These are moonlike landscapes formed by the continual erosion of the volcanic landscape by the wind and rain. They are tall, thin spires of rock that protrude from the bottom of an arid drainage basin or badland. Drive to Pasabagi (Monk's Valley) to see the most interesting mushroom-shaped pinnacles.
Drive to the city of Avanos for lunch. In the afternoon visit the Open Air Museum at Goreme with its remains of 12th to 13th century rock-cut churches containing beautiful frescoes (wall paintings) and Christian settlements dating back hundreds of years. Lastly, before returning to your hotel, visit the natural rock citadel of Uchisar, the tallest point in Cappadocia.
Hot Air Balloon Trip
Duration: 3 hours
This is a unique experience that is worth every penny. You will have to wake up quite early that day, but it's an experience you will remember. To do a balloon trip in Cappadocia – it's just magical.
Derinkuyu Underground City
Duration: 4 hours
Another "must see" in Turkey. These troglodyte cave-cities were excavated as early as Hittite times, and expanded over the centuries as various marauding armies traversed Central Anatolia. There are 36 underground cities in Cappadocia and the deepest one is Derinkuyu, while the widest is the Kaymakli . Derinkuyu is 40 km from Goreme. There are eight floors that extend to a depth of approximately 85 m. The extensive network of passages, tunnels, stepped pits and inclined corridors link family rooms and communal spaces where people would meet, work and worship. The cities were complete with wells, chimneys for air circulation, niches for oil lamps, stores, water tanks, stables and church. The city was connected with other underground cities through miles of long tunnels. The city could accommodate between 20,000 and 50,000 people.
