Full description
Go back in time as you learn about the history of Cappadocia on this guided day tour. Explore historical sites, have lunch at a local restaurant, and see the magnificent Selime Monastery all in one day. After meeting your guide, commence your tour by discovering the underground city in Cappadocia that was once a refuge for thousands of Christians. See the ancient bedrooms, church, meeting hall, and food storage rooms in this eight-story city connected by 30 kilometers of corridors and passageways. Then, head over to the Ihlara Valley, a deep and narrow river gorge cut by the Melendiz River. It is a great trekking route for those who enjoy trekking. You can also marvel at the churches, monasteries, and cells of anchorites found in it. Afterward, have lunch at a local restaurant on the Melendez River. Lastly, finish your tour at Selime. Visit the Selime Monastery, which is the largest of the many rock-cut religious buildings in the Cappadocia region. Learn about the story of the monastery and walk around Selime village before driving back to your hotel.
