Goreme, Cappadocia

— 2 nights
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.
Goreme is known for museums, historic sites, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, browse the exhibits of Goreme Open-Air Museum, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Güvercinlik Vadisi (Pigeon Valley).

To see maps, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Goreme route builder site.

Istanbul to Goreme is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. Traveling from Istanbul in March, Goreme is a bit cooler at night with lows of 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Thu) so you can travel back home.

The region of Cappadocia reveals fascinating tales of civilizations long past with its honeycombed hills characterized by geological rarities, including two World Heritage Sites. Sedimentary rocks formed in lakes and ignimbrite deposits from erupted volcanoes left soft rock formations scattered across the land, which were then carved out to create houses, churches, and monasteries in 300 CE. Explore these rock houses on your own or on a tour, or take in the topography from above on a hot air balloon ride. Complete your holiday with a hike along the trails and marvel at the dusky orange panorama and accordion-shaped valleys.
