Cappadocia is one of the most unique sightseeing places in the world, which is housed in the middle of Anatolia in the history of thousands of years. Whether you travel by bicycle or with balloons, you will have been trapped in the fascination of this land in very short time.

When I first went to Cappadocia in the 1980s, I was still in the age of youth. The endlessness of the soil color, the huge caves with the hats, the thousands of years old churches carved into the rocks, the stone armchairs and the giant castles have fascinated me.

It was a huge natural history museum as if it were spread out over such a large area, and there were so many different works from different civilizations coming together.

Cappadocia is starting from the foothill of Erciyes Mountain and extending to the steppes of Anatolia. Cappadocia must definitely be seen as cultural heritage besides the wonderful natural beauty, with hundreds of square kilometers of underground cave cities, underground cities, spas, huge stone carved from natural stones, potters which carrying the heritage of thousands of years to date and incredible vineyards.

Today there are only a few places where such isolated and preserved historical artifacts coexist. These lands, which include the authentic air of Anatolia as well as natural history, will offer you a very different unforgettable experience.

After coming to Nevsehir and getting to your hotel, get up in the morning and make your nice Anatolian breakfast.

Kaymakli and Derinkuyu regions are famous for underground cities. The kilometers long corridors and hand engraved hundreds of meters depth caves are definitely the places to visit.

Visit the Uchisar castle, whatever on your route. I would definitely recommend you to drink a cup of hot Turkish tea in the traditional coffee shops in the shade of the castle walls.

Nevsehir Castle is located in the city center and you can watch the whole city from one point. Make sure to visit the castle to make a trip to the depths of history.

Although Avanos is famous for its fairy chimneys, don't forget to visit local pottery ateliers and get a handmade soil pot. Soil pots allow you to take the history of Cappadocia to your home.
