Ride in a Hot Air Balloon
This is a MUST. You haven’t been to Cappadocia if you haven’t had a ride in a hot air balloon! I'm sure you've seen the images a million times over, but maybe didn't know exactly where it was. Well it is here in Cappadocia where you can have the ultimate experience of taking a hot air balloon ride at sunrise, gliding through the sky with amazing views of Cappadocia below.
Explore underground cities
These caves were excavated and expanded over centuries as the local people often had to hide from armies by escaping underground. Now beneath the rock formations lies and underground city with a maze of narrow tunnels, steps and connecting rooms which you can see and explore!
The harsh weather conditions over centuries have created this amazing landscape. Lava from volcanic eruptions created huge rock formations, which wind and rain sculpted into valleys, cliffs and the iconic fairy chimneys. It’s described as looking almost moon-like and easily the inspiration for movies like Star Wars.
The Görme Open Air Museum
This open air museum will amaze you with its cave churches and their frescoes that date back to the 10th century. The Görme is a member of UNESCO World Heritage List and was one of the first UNESCO sites in Turkey
