4-Day Tour - Cappadocia, Pamukkale & Ephesus
Day 1 - North Cappadocia Tour ( L )
At about 4.00am we take you to the airport in Istanbul for a 6.30am flight to Kayseri (Cappadocia). You arrive at 7.45am and your first stop is to check into a cave hotel and have breakfast. These hotels have bedrooms dug out of Cappadoccia's famous fairy chimneys. Some are around 2,000 years old, yet they are as warm and comfortable as a good city hotel.
After breakfast at the hotel your fully-guided North Cappadocia tour begins:
Uchisar, the highest point of Cappadocia and right in the centre of the region, is a troglodyte town with an enormous rock, which was used as a castle, overlooking it. From this vantage point you can enjoy a spectacular view of the fairy chimneys.
Goreme Open Air Museum Goreme was an important Christian centre in the early Middle Ages and is now a protected world heritage centre. A walk round this network of ancient fresco-covered churches that were laboriously carved out of the rock so long ago is a truly moving experience.
Cavusin, a deserted town because of frequent rock falls, was once inhabited by Dervishes and Christians, and before that by the Byzantines and Romans. With its beautiful rock houses, this is one of the essential sights of Cappadocia.
Monks Valley (Pasabag) is the best place to see three-headed fairy chimneys and beautiful natural rock formations .
Avanos is a centre for the local pottery trade, where you will be given the chance to try your hand on the potter's wheel .
Devrent Valley, a lunar landscape with animal-shaped pink rocks and some of the largest fairy chimneys in Cappadocia.
Urgup's Fairy Chimneys are yet another variety of these unearthly shapes created by volcanic ash, erosian and the passage of time. These have conical shaped bodies topped with a giant boulder.
At the end of the tour , we take you back to your hotel in Cappadocia .
Day 2 - South Cappadocia Tour ( L )
After breakfast, we pick you up from your hotel and your full-day guided tour (lunch included) starts with a panaromic view of Goreme with its unique fairy chimneys .
Underground City - an unbelievable experience, as you head down to what seems like the centre of the earth. Some of these cities go ten stories underground and could house 50,000 people, with their livestock and foodstores. Possibly built by the Phyrigians in the 7th century BC, they were later used as a refuge for persecuted Christians.
Ihlara Valley Explore the famous rock-hewn Byzantine churches and hike 4km through this beautiful valley .
Selimiye Mosque, this marvellous complex was carved into the volcanic rock during the Byzantine era .
Pigeon Valley, see the cliffs studded with pigeon houses, so high up it's hard to believe anyone could reach them to collect the droppings that were sold as fertilizer.
At the end of the tour you collect your luggage and head for Pamukkale by overnight bus.
Day 3 - Pamukkale ( B / L )
Our first stop in Pamukkale is for refreshments, after which your full-day guided tour of the area begins. Pamukkale, which means cotton castle, was formed over thousands of years by the natural hot springs, rich in calcium and carbonate, that flow down the cliffs. After exploring the travertines, you visit the ancient Roman health spa of Hierapolis, famous for its hot springs, theatre, agora and necropolis.
Bus to Kusadasi, check into your hotel for overnight stay.
Day 4 - Ephesus ( B / L )
After breakfast your full-day guided tour of Ephesus begins. Among the many stunning sights you will see the Temple of Artemis and Hadrian, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Celcius Library and the house where the Virgin Mary is said to have spent her last years. At the end of your tour we take you Izmir airport for a flight to Istanbul, where we transfer you to your hotel.
