The town was really amazing and one of the best examples about the traditional Turkish villages. If you will trip to Cappadocia, you should definetly visit this small and cute town.

We purchased a beautiful ceramic tile picture at Sultan Ceramics in Avanos in July 2014. We arranged for it to be shipped to our home in Australia, but unfortunately, it was broken during transit. When we advised Sultan Ceramics of the damage, they immediately created and sent a replacement for it. However, when the replacement arrived, it did not have... More

We tried our hand at pottery and bought some lovely pieces at a fair discount. People very friendly and open to discuss their prices.

We were going to take a local bus, but the owner of hotel arranged the very very cheap taxi. so I did RED TOUR by ourselves with Taxi. Avanos was the pottery town. All the Avanos people were working for pottery cave house from ancestors to ancestors.... Great to go, especailly, if you are into art!

A rather small area where caves were carved out of a mountain (the old town). Climb the mountain to get a great view over the town and the general area. It is situated close to other major attractions and accessible by car. There are also opportunities to do some shopping.

A very traditional Muslim township where customs are observed. Don't let this stop you from exploring & talking with the locals though. A great step off the tourist super highway.

Rent a scooter and head for Ananos on fridays. Grab a Gözleme at the Avanos Bereket Manti near the market and stuff your scooter with fruits you bought from the market. Head back to Goreme and enjoy your late fruity while stargazing. A perfect way to spend a friday's night in Turkey. Highly recommended!

Most tourists head for Goreme in Cappadocia. It has got all the infrastructure and is a tourist hub. About 10km away is Avanos, a small town by a river, not yet spoilt by the tourist influx though it has got all the infrastructure and much cheaper. At the most, tourists are herded into pottery workshops on the periphery of the... More
