I really wonder how people can caved a rock into some living place and go through high and low rooms one by one and withstand the cold. really good for sightseeing and took photos but nothing more. Oh, you can find a camel to ride on outside if you want to try for liras (sorry forgot the price)

if You're visitng Avanos,-- yes, it's the land of the pottery and you can visit those demonstration sessions with the tourist group and all that. Please be aware of the shops you enter at the potter's paradise. They are all very attractive and beautifully hand painted. You can get all types of antiques made up of red and white clay..... More

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 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.
