cappadocia tours from istanbul

Cappadocia, Turkey is a great city that’s famous for its ancient history. It’s home to hundreds of rock-cut churches and underground cities. In fact, it was recently recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site because of its unique geological formation and how it’s been used by humans throughout history!

Take a sunrise hot air balloon flight over Cappadocia

If you want to see Cappadocia in all its glory, then you should take a hot air balloon flight over the area. Hot air balloons are available early in the morning or late in the afternoon and may be booked with your hotel or through an outside tour operator. You can also book a nighttime flight where you’ll spend a few hours flying over Cappadocia at night and seeing how beautiful it looks when lit up by thousands of lights from hotels, restaurants, bars and other attractions.

Visit underground cities

The underground cities of Cappadocia are an unreal sight to behold. The buildings and streets of these underground metropolises have been carved out of the volcanic rock that makes up a great deal of the regions. The largest city, Derinkuyu, is more than 10 levels deep and can hold up to 20,000 people at any given time!

While there are many ways to visit these wondrous sites (e.g., on tours), there’s no denying that doing so alone can be both exciting and frightening. However, with some preparation ahead of time you’ll make sure that your trip goes off without a hitch.

Hike through the valley of Ihlara

If you’re looking for something a little bit different, and want to experience the beauty of nature, hiking through the Ihlara Valley is a great option for you. The valley is located in Cappadocia and is home to many waterfalls and rock formations. There are plenty of hiking trails throughout this area but if you don’t want to spend too much time walking, then there are also other options available such as following the river bed or just exploring on foot.

Ihlara Valley is one of Cappadocia’s most popular destinations during the summer months due to its cooler temperatures which makes it ideal for hot weather conditions during these months so if you plan on visiting during this time period then make sure that you book your flight accordingly so that you will have enough time before leaving home (or another location) in order to reach this destination safely without running into any issues along the way!

Gaze at the Devil’s Castle

  • Gaze at the Devil’s Castle

The Devil’s Castle is a rock formation that looks like a castle. It is located in the Göreme Open Air Museum, which also has other spectacular rock formations. The museum is a popular tourist attraction and also has many shops selling handcrafted items, so it can be crowded.

  • Take Pictures at Open Air Hot Springs

You may want to take pictures of some of Cappadocia’s famous hot springs! If you do decide to do this, make sure you bring your bathing suit or swim trunks because some of these springs require swimming gear. In general, though, this activity is pretty simple: go stand by one of these places where people are standing around soaking in hot water and take your own picture there as well!

Stay in a cave hotel

You can choose to stay in a cave hotel with a private hot tub, or you can pick one with a private pool. If you’re feeling adventurous, there are also some hotels that offer their guests the chance to relax in a sauna or steam room while they’re staying in Cappadocia.

Explore Pigeon Valley

Pigeon Valley, close to Göreme and Kaymakli, is a prominent feature of Cappadocia’s landscape. The valley has an unmistakable silhouette, with its distinctive rock formations resembling giant stone birds taking flight. This area is also home to several underground cities (such as Derinkuyu) that were carved into the cliffs and used by Christians hiding from persecution during the Byzantine era.

Visit the Göreme Open Air Museum

One of the most popular things to do in Cappadocia visits the Göreme Open Air Museum. The museum is a collection of rock-cut churches and chapels that have been cut into the volcanic rocks surrounding Göreme. The museum has become one of the most important archaeological sites in all of Turkey and it features more than 75 excavated churches, monasteries, and hermitages dating back to Byzantine times (5th century AD). It was added to UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list in 1985 because it shows so much about how Christians lived during that time period.

If you plan on going here, make sure to bring your camera because there are many beautiful sights inside these caves that would be perfect for taking pictures!

Cappadocia is a geological wonderland and an unforgettable place to visit.

Cappadocia is a geological wonderland, and it’s one of the most unique places you’ll ever visit. You’ll be amazed by how it feels like you’re on another planet while still being in Turkey. There are lots of things to do in Cappadocia, but these are some of the highlights:

  • Hot air balloon flights are one of the best ways to see this unique landscape. These flights can last up to two hours and cover several different areas within Cappadocia depending on what you want to see. The balloons fly at 6-7 ft above ground level so that you don’t have any trouble seeing anything!
  • Underground cities are another must-see attraction here because they’re unlike anything else you’ve ever seen before! These ancient underground towns were created centuries ago as a way for Christians to escape persecution from Muslim Turks during Ottoman rule (1453–1923). They’ve been preserved very well over time so now visitors can explore them and learn more about their history through guided tours provided by locals who know everything about these fascinating places.”
