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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Red and Rose Valley Tours, Zelve Open Air Museum, Fairy Chimneys, and other attractions. On the 31st (Sat), head outdoors with Turkiye Balloons, take in the dramatic natural features at Fairy Chimneys, then explore the galleries of Zelve Open Air Museum, and finally do sightseeing your way with Red and Rose Valley Tours. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get to know the fascinating history of Goreme National Park and then don't miss a visit to Kaymakli Underground City.

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.
