Full description
Start your day with pickup from your hotel in Istanbul and transfer to the airport for your flight to Cappadocia. On arrival in Cappadocia, your guide will first take you to see the Devrent Valley. The ruins at Devrent are spread over three valleys, which also house several pointed fairy chimneys with large stems. Next visit the Love Valley which is one of the best places to see three-headed fairy chimneys. 

Continue on to Avanos where you'll discover the 5000-year-old terra cotta art industry. Visit a traditional pottery workshop and see an artist in action. Then head to Uchisar, a troglodyte town named after the enormous piece of rock in the center of the town, which was once used as a castle. This extraordinary rock is the highest point in the area with a great view of Cappadocia and Erciyes (Argeus) Mountain.

In the afternoon visit Kaymakli underground city, and then enjoy one last photo stop at the Ürgüp Fairy chimneys, before catching your evening flight back to Istanbul where you’ll be transferred back to your hotel.
