If you have never heard of the wonder that is Cappadocia, you’re in for a treat and a new item for your bucket list! Picture Star Wars, the lunar landscape, and entire cities in the caves—it’s unlike anything you have ever seen or are likely to see again! Volcanic eruptions created the “fairy chimneys”, which are shaped like everything from mushrooms to animals to totem poles.
To add to the amazing experience, you have the chance to stay in one of the amazing cave hotels. We chose the Esbelli Evi Hotel. Our group of four stayed in the Labyrinth Suite and I can’t say enough wonderful things about the hotel and staff.
Our two day tour of the area took us to the Goreme Open Air Museum, Pigeon Valley, Zelve Open Air Museum, and Kaymakli Underground City, along with many other stops at the fairy chimneys. We also enjoyed a sunrise hot air balloon ride. Turkey has a little something for everyone, and Cappadocia is a must-see!
