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 Goreme's surroundings by going to Selime Monastery (in Guzelyurt) and Derinkuyu Yeralti Sehri (in Derinkuyu). And it doesn't end there: enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, look for gifts at Alaturca Taner, admire the verdant scenery at Gulludere Vadisi, and see Off-Road Tours.
