Goreme, Cappadocia

— 6 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.
Take a break from the city and head to Goreme National Park and Zemi Valley. Visit Mazi Yeralti Sehri and Güvercinlik Vadisi (Pigeon Valley) for their historical value. The adventure continues: explore by horseback at Lucky Horse Ranch, look for gifts at Cappadocia Dowry Carpet, see the interesting displays at Cappadocia Art & History Museum, and look for all kinds of wild species at Damsa Baraji.

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.
