CAPPADOCIA

Cappadocia lies deep in the heart of Turkey, where people settled in lunar-like landscapes and burrowed their houses and churches into stone cliffs and built cities underground. Where else in the world can you float over beautiful fairy chimneys in a hot-air balloon in the morning, admire Byzantine frescoes in the afternoon and sample fine food and wine at night? Here you can also take a spectacular hike through a rose-tinted gorge, indulge in a frenzy of shopping at a covered bazaar dating from Ottoman times and see dervishes whirl in an atmospheric caravanserai. I recommend two days on your Turkey tour to explore this area, but you will not find a shortage of things to enjoy if you can squeeze three or four days into your itinerary.
