CAPPADOCIA SIGHTSEEING TOUR (CODE DCAP171)

Full day tour ( Lunch Inc.)

One of the oldest settlements of the region is Goreme. The Christians who were under attack by the Arabic Muslim conquerors occupied this small town. Some of the earliest churches in this area date back to the 7th century A.D. Goreme was an important settlement even before the Christian era. The chimney-like, rock formations that spread throughout Cappadocia's rugged landscape are as fantastic as man's accomplishments within its stone. Visit the Byzantine churches of Goreme carved into the cliffs and caves with colorful frescoes dating to the 7th century, including Yilanli (Snake) Church, Elmali (Apple) Church, Tokali (Buckle) Church among many others

Originally, there was a church for every day of the year.  Continue your exploration of this intriguing region with a visit to the hidden, monastic valley of Zelve and the ancient town of Uchisar. The ancient settlement place of Zelve is one of the most spectacular points in Cappadocia. The narrow valley, in which the old settlement of Zelve located, has a large number of carved rock houses and churches.  Zelve had always been a secure hiding place for early Christians against the Romans and later on Arab conquerors. The most interesting churches in the area can be found here.

UNDERGROUND CITY & IHLARA VALLEY (CODE DCAP172)

Literally walk in the footsteps of early Christians during a morning visit of the Derinkuyu underground city.  Descend 8 stories beneath the surface of the earth to the underground city with its wine cellars, classrooms and tombs where early Christians, fleeing persecution, lived for months at a time undetected.  Approximately 15,000 people used to live in this underground city. The city was sub-divided into separate sections for better defense purposes. Each section could be isolated from each other by closing the mill stone shaped round rock gates with a diameter of 1.5m. The passages between these sections are about 30kms long. The corridors are very narrow. But the living rooms, meeting halls, churches and other facilities are very comfortable.

 The storage rooms were capable of storing enough food for the residents for many months. The airshafts and water wells were adequate for 15,000 people, living all together for a very long time.  After lunch continue to explore Cappadocia's beauty above ground as you drive through the twists and turns of Ihlara Valley.
