The Goreme area is something special, there truly is no place on earth like it. It's like stepping into another world and probably one of my favorite places to visit. Bring some good shoes because this place has endless areas to explore. Perfect for active travelers.

If you have ortodox religion it's very important to visit it. You'll find there the ruts of your relicion, the first ortodox churches from almost 2000 years.

Great experience and so much of history from the 8th century. The cave churches and dwellings made one wonder about how people lived during those times. The kids had a great history lesson and an appreciation of times gone by. It was hot in July when we visited and sun protection is highly recommended.

This was ok, but there were so many other tourists around that the photo opportunities get spoilt a bit. Added to that, you have to pay to get in!! - Instead of the main area, just visit all the free caves that surround it.... (Just across the road)

This is a beautiful area with stunning formations. Everywhere you look is a spot for a pic. recommend you take a hot air balloon ride. While expensive and cramped, it is a great way to see this area.
