Famed for its landscape of unusually shaped stone formations and churches cut into the natural rocks, Goreme sits in the central part of the country, an area originally settled during Roman times.
Step out of the city life by going to Goreme National Park and Uchisar Castle. Do some cultural sightseeing at Derinkuyu Yeralti Sehri and Güvercinlik Vadisi (Pigeon Valley). Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Goreme: Kaymakli (in Nevsehir) and Derinkuyu (St.Theodore Church, Uzumlu Kilise, &more). There's lots more to do: soar above the sights with a balloon tour, get outside with Honey Valley, Goreme Turkey, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, and explore the striking landscape at Love Valley.
