A lace where John probably stopped with Mary after leaving Israel. You can't beat that. See history as it was and still remains.

An organised tour with a guide is the way to see Cappadocia. There are masses of caves and dwellings, churches carved in the rocks and the Open-air Museum at Goreme is excellent. Try to go on a balloon ride - quite spectacular and awe-inspiring.

A chance to walk through these ancient dwellings and wonder how people actually lived there... the play of light and shadow makes for interesting pictures.

We spent two days touring this area. It included the Cave Dwellings, Fairy Chimneys and Underground Cities. Every one of these attractions is unique and breathtaking. It is truly a photographer's dream. To enjoy all these attractions, you have to be ready to walk and climb mostly gentle hills. We (a gorup of about 12 people) were very fortunate to... More

Very unique place! There are many sights, including the Fairy Chimneys, monasteries, underground cities, and we even stayed in a cave hotel. All caves, all the time! Amazing how the people lived here, raised pigeons (which are still there) and collected the guano for fertilizer through small openings on the cliffsides, farmed, created incredible paintings to decorate the walls of...
