    A beautiful national park - and we only saw about three other people all afternoon. Loved the Cross Church and all the other cave dwellings. Incredible landscape

    This was well worth doing and an easy walk around. The dark church was an additional small fee but well worth doing - probably the highlight of the park. Whilst crowded it was never too busy to see everything

    We did not actually walk through the valley but we enjoyed the view from the top. It is really beautiful.

    A nice location to walk up (really up) to. After sunset, you can also enjoy the views of the lighted city from the top.

    A Stone Mountain Castle makes you feel like a barbarian king…. Very agreeable and beautiful view from the top. We took a fun camel ride after the visit.

    Zemi Valley is set between two most famous castles in Cappadocia - Uchisar and Ortahisar.
    Driving between them there're several places to stop and park your car to explore more amazing landscapes with fairy chimneys and other rock formations.

    We visited a pottery shop. They showed us how the potteries were made.There were lots of colourful items for sales ranging from utensils to lamps.

    This is the main highlight of Goreme open air Museum, and one of the best in entire Cappacocia.
    It is one out of 15-16 churches spread throughout the Goreme open air musuem, and it requires a small extra entry fee (though, it is included if you hold the Museum Pass which I strongly suggest, as it saves you around 40%).
    The Dark Church dates back to 11 c, and the name derives from its dark interior, as there's only one small window letting the light in. This enabled amazing interiors to be greatly preserved - outstanding frescoes of Christ the Pantocrator, Judas betrayal, Last Supper,....etc
    Photography officially is not allowed, but as you see most manage to capture something from this amazing historical Church.

    The real advantage of this spot is the more red color of the rocks, making for some excellent pictures. That said, you will be aiming away from a flood of tourists taking selfies.

    An excellent visit that you must do. A complete underground city. It can be tight and low in some places. Definitely worth a visit.

    This is the deepest tunnel complex open to the public in Cappadocia and you get to go 8 levels below ground and witness where many thousands of people once lived underground. The history of the area is fascinating.
    The floors are fairly good but tunnels are steep in places, not good if unfit.

    Mazi is one of many underground cities In cappadocia but this one specially could be acceptable for people who has Claustrophobia because of the high ceiling. Only few stories open for public and amazing lighting inside the cave.

    Shortly before the last, frighteningly steep, descent to the open air museum, there is a sign indicating a rather nice though plain church: the Aynalı church. . Apart from the church there are several other rooms that one can reach climbing through the rocks. It is named Symmetrical Church on some sites, ayna meaning mirror as in my dictionary it is translated as "paneled", and the front has noticeable panels (though they are not unique to this church).
