Cappadocia extension program with two ways domestic flight:

Cappadocia may seem like a lost world to the arriving traveler. It is almost a fairy tale landscape, where you expect elves and fairies to emerge through little doorways in the rocks you are standing on. Millions of years ago the landscape was covered with a torrent of lava. Later floods, rain and wind sawed away the lava rock, creating deep valleys and fissures, and slopes turned into cones and columns. The white dust from the rocks looks like sand, but it is quite fertile, and trees, vines and vegetables grow quite easily in it. The rock is also perfect for carving entire buildings - homes, stables, chapels and cells for hermits and monks. Thousands of rock churches can be found in the area, and many people still live in the rock formations, which are cool in the summer. Cappadocia is a region rich in history and natural wonder.

Day 1 Upon arrival to Istanbul, you will be met and transferred to your hotel, which is located right on the shores of the Marmara Sea. The rest of your day is at leisure.

Day 2 In the morning drive to the airport and fly from Istanbul to Central Turkey, to the gateway to the Cappadocia region. Upon arrival transfer by coach to an area which looks like the Moon's surface, and here your discovery begins. Your tour starts with the natural citadel of Uchisar, which will enable you to get a panoramic view of the region. Continue to Göreme Valley. This valley houses the Göreme Open Air Museum with its churches and monasteries hewn out of rock and colorful frescoes which decorate them.

Enjoy your lunch at a Turkish Restaurant before the visit to the Zelve Valley where the settlements and houses were carved into the rock and see the villages of Avanos and Cavusin. Walk through the pigeon Valley. In the early evening, return to the hotel, where also dinner will be served.

Day 3 On this day you can enjoy an optional balloon ride over this fascinating region. It's a memorable experience to silently glide over this dramatic landscape as the sun rises.

After a late breakfast in your hotel explore further. Drive to the south of Nevsehir and visit the underground city of Kaymakli. Your lunch will be served at a Turkish Restaurant en route. In the afternoon drive to Ortahisar which is one of the high elevations of the area. You will get full view of the spectacular volcanic formations. Enjoy shopping the local handicrafts of pottery, onyx stone carvings, kilim and carpets. Dinner and entertainment at a local site.

Day 4 After breakfast depart for the airport. Fly from Nevsehir / Kayseri to Istanbul. Upon arrival transfer to your hotel for your Istanbul program.
