Goreme, Cappadocia

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 duringĀ Roman times.
Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Fri): head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, appreciate the extensive heritage of Goreme National Park, and then stop by Tribal Collections Nomadic Rugs and Textiles. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: do a tasting at Kocabag Winery, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Gore Harabeleri, then get outside with Honey Valley, Goreme Turkey, and finally see Off-Road Tours.

Plan my trip to Goreme with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

New Delhi, India to Goreme is an approximately 16-hour flight. You'll gain 2.5 hours traveling from New Delhi to Goreme due to the time zone difference. Expect colder temperatures when traveling from New Delhi in April; daily highs in Goreme reach 22°C and lows reach 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Istanbul.
