I visited the place twice 10 years ago and a week ago. Galip was there 10 years ago, a friendly atmosphere and place was full of visitors. Last week I encountered an unfriendly waiter and no visitors at all. Galip was not there. The bizarre hair collection still deserves a short visit.

Cappadocia to the best of the best accommodation and free shopping arena.   Ottoman stone bridge over a small river serves the best for motor vehicles. and the old wooden swinging bridge day and night for the people who live in the memories of a fantastic and romantic atmosphere in a convenient location is perfect for.

We were in Goreme, but took a taxi to Avanos, and it was well worth it. Its a nice lovely little town. It had some gondolas on the river as well, but at it was hot and we didn't stay till evening we didn't try them, but they looked good. We tried the Mado restaurant next to the river and... More

The best to do is to visit the pottery fabric named Firca We bought handcraft pottery super nice but not cheap, at least it is really from here and not from China as everything in Gran Bazzar ( Istanbul ).

If you’re visiting the region of Cappadocia I recommend you visit the small village of Avanos. Avanos is considered the pottery capitol of the Cappadocian Region.

Most shops have their own... More

Avanos is worth a half day visit! It is not about the tourists but local people living and hanging out there...more authentic and good shopping opportunities. We went on Friday, and had the chance to visit the local market, where local people go for veggies and other staff's shopping. That was an interesting place to visit. Also walking along the... More

Our guide drove us around wherever we wanted. He recommended many places and we visited them. Churches, ruins, old Christian underground cities. Places where pottery and jewelry are made. Avanos was part of this tour. Wonderful!!!!
