Famed for its landscape of unusually shaped stone formations and churches cut into the natural rocks, Goreme sits in the central part of the country, an area originally settled during Roman times.
Explore hidden gems such as Goreme National Park and Love Valley. Get some historical perspective at Zelve Open Air Museum and Goreme Open-Air Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Kayseri (Ipeksaray AVM, Museum of SeljuK Civilisation, &more) and Mazi Yeralti Sehri (in Urgup). There's much more to do: head outdoors with Royal Balloon, appreciate the views at Peri Bacalari, explore the world behind art at Guray Museum, and make a trip to Camel Rock.
