Cappadocia Itinerary

Day 4: Arrival
Welcome to Cappadocia, known for its otherwordly landscape and rich history. Upon arrival at Kayseri airport, your private driver takes you to your hotel in Cappadocia for check-in. After check-in, the rest of the evening is free for you to enjoy the town on your own.

Day 5: Full Day Tour of Cappadocia
In the morning after breakfast, you meet your private guide and driver to explore the spectacular landscapes of Northern Cappadocia. 

Today you start your exploration of Cappadocia with a visit to the Goreme Open Air Museum, the most famous tourist attraction in Cappadocia. Here you witness ancient cave churches from the 10-12th centuries, cut into the rock by Orthodox monks, decorated by original frescoes. 

Next on your list is the Zelve Valley, an amazing cave town, honeycombed with dwellings, religious and secular chambers. Zelve is among the earliest-settled and last-abandoned monastic valleys in Cappadocia, which was an inhabited town and a living community up until 1952. 

Devrent Valley which you visit next, in contract to Goreme and Zelve, also known as Imaginary Valley, was never even inhabited, but boasts incredible pink hued rock formations and geological anomalies that have been formed by centuries of erosion and forma an amazing lunar landscape. The valley also has many animal shaped rocks, it looks like a sculpture zoo made by nature. 

You then proceed to the Cavusin Village, one of the oldest settlements in the area, is famous for its Church of St.John the Baptist that dates back to the 5th century and is the oldest church in the region. The old Cavusin village, which was abandoned several decades ago due to rock falls, was all carved into the hillside. The inhabitants of Cavusin lived in houses which were cut into a massive rock wall. Now the insides of many of the dwellings are exposed due to hundreds and hundreds of years of weathering and erosion. So, now from a distance you can look into a church or what was once someone’s cozy little cave home. 

As a culmination of the tour you visit the town of Avanos set on the banks of Kizilirmak (Red) river, which supplies the town with clay for pottery, from which the area derives its main livelihood for centuries. It is believed that some of the techniques still used today date back to 2000 BC, and today you have a chance to learn these ancient techniques on a pottery masterclass at a local pottery. 

After the tour and masterclass, you are transferred to your hotel and have the evening at leisure.
