Avanos

Trip Planner Europe  /  Turkey  /  Cappadocia  /  Avanos
Situated along the Kızılırmak (Red River), the ancient town of Avanos is famous for its many historical pottery factories. Traditionally formed by men and painted by women, Turkish ceramics have a huge place in the country's cultural and artistic history. Explore the town's ceramic trade district and see this long-practiced art form firsthand with a tour of its authentic factories dating back to the Hittites. Walk along the town's river, which is the source of the red silt used in the ceramics, and enjoy the picturesque cobbled streets of its Old Town. Avanos is in Cappadocia. Make your own Avanos vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Turkey day trip planning tool .

Where to stay in Avanos

In Avanos, you'll find a lively nightlife. Along the Red River, famous for its red clay, is a collection of moderately priced hotels and a few international chains. The closer you stay to the river, the closer you'll be to the busy town square, pottery making, and cafes that line the waterfront. The more budget-conscious traveler can explore the handful of guesthouses on the north bank of the river, across the footbridge from the main downtown area. If a hostel is more in your price point, look to the neighboring town of Göreme.
