Goreme, Cappadocia

— 3 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.
On the 19th (Sat), get outside with Outdoor Activities, then explore the wealth of natural beauty at Goreme National Park, then stop by Turquoise Rugs & Bags, and finally appreciate the extensive heritage of G├╝vercinlik Vadisi (Pigeon Valley). Here are some ideas for day two: soar above the sights with a balloon tour, contemplate the long history of Goreme Open-Air Museum, and then explore the fascinating underground world of Uchisar Castle.

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.
