Cappadocia Tailormade Holidays

The mysterious rock formations and underground cities of Cappadocia are perhaps the jewel in Turkey’s crown. Whole troglodyte villages, subterranean churches and fortresses have been hewn from the soft porous rock, creating a complex system of apartments, public rooms and underground interconnecting streets that once easily housed hundreds of people. The underground cities were largely used as hiding places by Hittites and early Christians and even today some are still inhabited. The UNESCO Listed Goreme is probably the biggest attraction in Cappadocia with over 30 magnificently frescoes Byzantine rock churches open to the public. At Zelve the remains of a monastery complex and the famous phallic-like rock formations nicknamed ‘fairy chimneys are the main draw. As well as being a place of unique beauty, Cappadocia is also an excellent region for purchasing handmade carpets and for adventurous activities such as mountain biking and hiking. A hot air balloon ride over this magical landscape is highly recommended!
