Cappadocia, is one of the world’s unique regions that combines a long history starting from the Neolithic Period, with its fascinating natural beauties that spread all over the region including the fairy chimneys, volcanoes and valleys; a cultural heritage especially descending from the Ottoman, Greek and Seljukian periods and an animated daily life of the Cappadocians with a variety of products ranging from grapes and apricots to world famous hand-woven carpets and ceramics.
Starting the day early experiencing a wonderful hot air balloon ride, then going to the depths of the volcanic tuff, discovering the underground city where the early Christians took refuge from Roman persecutions, later glaring at the relaxing scenery of the the Erciyes Volcano behind the fairy chimneys in Goreme Valley or visiting the rock-cut churches from the Greek period ornamented by wonderful frescoes and finally dining with a glass of local wine are the daily routines of a unique experience in Cappadocia,
and before slepping a show of folkloric dances and a ‘sema’ (ceremony) of the whirling dervishes can be added to your evening programme.
“The country of beautiful horses” of the Hittites invites you to peace, tranquility, amazement and total well-being.
