lovely view, nice walks even for less active people, caves made me a bit claustrophobic especially since with many visitors it is hard to get in and out and excavated skeletons lying in some of the graves don't make the atmosphere any better in there.

We booked a one day trip to Cappadocia as we had gone for a very short trip to Turkey and had a limited number of days in hand. We saw quite a few things in Cappadocia; the fairy-chimneys, the mushroom-shaped pinnacles at Pasabag, the natural castles at Uchisar, the city of Avanos, and the open-air Goreme museum where we saw...

A nice walk from Goreme, especially on a spring day. The buildings and frescoes were very interesting and beautiful. Pay the extra entrance to the Karanlık Kilise. If you are short on time, visit the Apple (Elmali) Church and Karanlik Kilise which has the most impressive frescoes.

Te ancient volcanic formation is something we cannot find anywhere in this Planet. I must to see.

This is culture at its best. The natural fairy chimneys carved out into habitable houses/churches/cathedrals are a truly unbelievable sight and the very colourful frescoes are unbelievable. There is also a very good food bar and lovely Museum Shop with many intersting items to purchase. Don't miss this spot.

This is probably the finest collection of rock-hewn cave churches in the world. The lack of light has preserved the frescoes vivid colour some dating back to the 8th Century in Byzantine times. Each church has a detailed description outside and audio guides are also available.

Not so much to see along the way (or maybe in went in the wrong season) but the place itself is quite interesting. Better to rent a guide/ audio guide for more information about the place.

Beautiful fairy chimneys carved by nature itself. Viewing on a hot air balloon is a must-do for every visitor here.
