Cappadocia area and the open air museum at Goreme in particular are amazing. The fact that so much of that very ancient landscape has survived despite the composition of the earth (solicited volcanic ash) and the wear and tear of weather over time. - Cold wet winters and hot dry summers. The area is vast. One can drive all day... More

This is worth the visit, but requires imagination. Hard to correlate these cave dwellers in the same time era that other civilizations were far more advanced. Be prepared to stoop low, not comfortable for tall people.

Visited an underground cave dwelling which was very informative. The caves themselves had everything for the residents. Restrooms, kitchens, rooms for goats, wells etc. amazing how people lived so long ago.

Cappadocia is a geographical marvel and a visit should be on everyone's bucket list. I visited with a school group (14-17 yr olds) and like me, they were in awe of the landscape. They were intrigued and engaged by the dwellings, asking our guide numerous questions, taking many photos and soaking up the experience.

Cappadocia has thousands of cave dwellings...they are everywhere, and are quite spectacular. There are dozens of them that contain Christian churches, generally from the 11th century, with frescos that are still visible.

The tour guides are very well informed and their grasp of English was great. Go in the morning unless you want to get lost in the throngs of tourists.
