CAPPADOCIA

CAPPADOCIA

Probably the most visually striking region of Turkey, Cappadoce is a unique, moonscape, where erosion has formed caves, clefts, 'fairy' chimneys and folds in the soft rock. Stay in one of our luxurious cave hotels, set amongst these ancient dwellings, and use it as a base from which to explore this amazing area. There are said to be more than a thousand churches and chapels in Cappadocia. The whole spectrum of religious architecture, from basilicas with single, double or triple naves to vestibules, asisles, domes, columns and pillars, can be found in these churches, all hollowed out of the stone and decorated with finely executed frescoes. Visit these historic painted cave churches, wander through monastic villages and get a taste for the surprisingly good wineries and vineyards of the area.

For a truly memorable experience take to the skies in a hot air balloon at dawn to enjoy bewitching views and get a true impression of the scale and geography of this most unusual and spectacular part of the country.
