Goreme, Cappadocia

— 7 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.
Explore Goreme's surroundings by going to Guzelyurt (Selime Monastery & Ihlara Valley) and Derinkuyu (Derinkuyu Yeralti Sehri & Kaymakli Underground City). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Goreme National Park, appreciate the views at Gulludere Vadisi, trot along with a tour on horseback, and explore the historical opulence 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.
