Goreme, Cappadocia

Famed for its landscape of unusually shaped stone formations and churches cut into the natural rocks, Goreme sits in the central part of the country, an area originally settled during Roman times.
Change things up with a short trip to Kaymakli Underground City in Derinkuyu (about 32 minutes away). There's still lots to do: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, admire the verdant scenery at Gulludere Vadisi, explore the striking landscape at Love Valley, and contemplate the long history of Goreme National Park.

To see photos, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Goreme online trip itinerary builder.

Basrah, Iraq to Goreme is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of flight and car. Prepare for cooler weather when traveling from Basrah in November: high temperatures in Goreme hover around 16°C and lows are around 0°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) early enough to travel to Pamukkale.
