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

We wished to stay in Avanos rather than touristy Goreme. Avanos is a small beautiful village with local shops and river. Only few minutes driving form Goreme, we felt like "coming back " to Turkey with friendly people around ... and we can find simit (pastanesi or bakery) shop. Walk in the evening along the river, is just pleasant.

It's great to go to Avanos for few hours, to have a lazy walk in town's park alongside river and to feed dozens of wild geese

Capoccia is a beautiful place where you always come back, not only to cross this beautiful bridge, but cross into the depths of the soul and its underground cities .

My husband and in-laws visited in April 2015. We had a great time! We took a walk along the river bank and walked across the bridge to get to the center of Avanos. Spent the afternoon just browsing through the shops. Stopped by at a pottery shop and they showed me how to make a pot! It was so much... More

What a lovely town. First went to the hair museum, entrance is free. Over 3 million pieces of women's hair. It was started in 1979. Had a bite at the Macdonalds, must be the best Macdonalds I have ever seen worth popping in even if you aren't eating. The town has its weekly market on a Friday, rows of fresh... More

We travelled with RSD Travel to this amazing region of Turkey. The hotel was average but the region is amazing and very well worth a visit. Just remember 4/5 star in Turkey is not the same as the UK except the drinks prices !! The overall experience was extremely good and the places we visited were most interesting. I opted... More

Avanos famous for its pottery and for the Kızılırmak (Halys in ancient times) River. After visiting the ceramic workshops in Avanos, take a stroll along the banks of the Kızılırmak or walk on the suspended cable bridge. There are several restaurants and cafes to sit and relax with some Turkish coffee or chay and enjoy the view.
