Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Goreme: Derinkuyu (St.Theodore Church, Uzumlu Kilise, &more) and Kaymakli (in Nevsehir). The adventure continues: soar above the sights with a balloon tour, make a trip to Zemi Valley, head outdoors with Honey Valley, Goreme Turkey, and appreciate the views at Gulludere Vadisi.
