All included Cappadocia Package -3 nights accommodation and 2 full days of extraordinary activities 

We have received a lot of requests for the Cappadocia package (exclusively). Then, we decided to prepare this package to highlight the best out of Cappadocia.

Itinerary

First day: Arrival

In the afternoon, we will take the flight to Cappadocia from Istanbul airport (Don’t worry, we will buy the domestic tickets for you). The flight takes 1h10 minutes.

After landing in Cappadocia airport, we will transfer you to the booked hotel.

Note: Dinner is not included in the hotel, but we have a few options near the building.

Second day: Tour in Cappadocia

During the early morning, while the sunrise is happening, we can do the famous activity of a balloon ride (optional).

At 10:00 am, we will follow toward some external visitations with our private guide in the following sightseeing:

– Underground City of Kaymakli: You will travel to the underground city built under the hill known as the Citadel of Kaymakli and opened to the public in 1964. People who lived in Kaymakli (Enegup in Greek) built their houses in the underground tunnels;

– Pigeon Valley: It is one of the most famous valleys in the region of Cappadocia and its name comes from the pigeon-cotes carved on its walls. The valley provides a walk in a green valley with many different rock formations and hundreds of pigeon houses carved into the rock and painted white to attract the pigeons. Farmers collect the droppings of pigeons which are an excellent fertilizer for vines and orchards;

– Uçhisar Castle: Uçhisar means “fortress” in Turkish and is one of the most typical localities of Cappadocia, with its house being confused with the rocky landscape so characteristic of the region. Situated on the highest point in Cappadocia, it houses the Uçhisar Castle, which provides an incredible panoramic view of the region. The rock castle was used as a shelter in the Hittite period (about 1500 BC) and later by the early Christians during the Roman period and the Byzantines during the Arab incursions in the 7th and 8th centuries and the first Turkish invasions. The fortress is an authentic labyrinth that includes chapels, monasteries, rooms, dining rooms, warehouses, and rooms linked together by a network of galleries spread over twenty floors. Some of the houses are still inhabited;

– Pink Valley: It is located valley between Göreme and Çavusin and is divided into many small valleys: Gulludere, Kizilcukur, Meskendir, and Zindanonu. This beautiful valley was named after the color of the rocks, which varies in tone and intensity depending on the position of the sun, the season and the weather conditions. During the walk, we will visit several churches, houses, and tunnels in the caves. The pink Valley has trails in low, medium, and high difficulty.

–Çavuşin village: It is one of the oldest settlements in the area. In this village stands the Church of St. John the Baptist, which offers a panoramic view of the village. Built-in the fifth century, it has an impromptu location, and columns emphasize its prominence over the whole valley.

Tickets and lunches included on this day.

Return to the hotel around 5:30 pm.

Note: Dinner is not included in the hotel, but we have a few options near the building.

Third day: Tour in Cappadocia

After breakfast at your hotel around 9 am, you will meet our local guide and our driver and we will take the tour around the region visiting the following sightseeing:

– Esentepe: The region of Esentepe is the best place to observe the variety of colors of the fairy chimneys and the incredible landscape that reminds the moon;

– Open-air museum Göreme: It houses treasures from the time of the first Christians, who took refuge in this place to survive the persecutions by the Roman empire.   For a long time, it was the center of the monastic life, it housed several Churches excavated in the stones, constructed between centuries VII and XIII that continue in their great majority, open for visits, revealing its interior covered of Byzantine frescoes. Some are in a better state of preservation than others, and in some, the frescoes are repeated, understandable if we judge for the educational value they represented, since the images facilitated the understanding of the teachings of the gospel of Christ. The museum has been a member of the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1984;

– Devrent Valley: It is also known as “Valley of Imagination” or “Pink Valley” and reveals many rocky lunar formations. The little fairy chimneys of the valley form a lunar landscape because of its strange appearance. The valley also has several rocks in the form of animals. It looks like a zoo carved out of nature! Some of the most easily visible forms are camels, snakes, seals, and dolphins. If you give wings to your imagination you can also see other shapes. It’s like looking at the clouds and seeing dragons. There is even a rock that looks like the Virgin Mary with the Baby Jesus;

– Paşabağ valley: The vale has the mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys where the monks lived alone and reserved on the rocks;

– Avanos: It is situated on the banks of the Kızılırmak, and known as the “Red River”, which is the largest river in Turkey and separates the city from other parts of Cappadocia. The town is known mainly for tapestry and for its red clay pottery from the banks of Kızılırmak, a traditional activity in the area since the time of the Hittites, and still very important. It is a popular tourist destination due to the beauty of the old town with its cobbled streets and river views.

Lunch will be served at a local restaurant.
