  • The dungeon was created by the beginning of the Christian retreat from Islam. Underground city should have a taste, there are wine cellar kitchen and so on, as well as an outside the tower and so on. The dungeon is more crowded than this. Many roads need to be crouched down or crawled, so if your feet are not good or have a hidden phobia, I don't recommend you to take this trip.

  • Made from 3,500 years ago, when a lot of 20000 people seems to be lived. Live and I understand it is a city.

  • This is a great attraction to visit on your own. It's a 30 min drive from Goreme, but the underground city is huge and the entire area is open for exploration. We had a lot of fun here as adults and I'm sure it would be even better for kids.
  • This place is amazing! The inside is nice and cool unlike many other locations in Turkey. We went pretty late in the afternoon as well so the merchants were not as prone to harassing as other places. Bathrooms are 1 lira though! Which i feel is something unique to Turkey as well.
  • this is the biggest and the most original underground city of all. u need to buy a ticket for a small amount of money to enter. the tour take almost 45 minutes and its really awesome
  • UNESCO world heritage site and well worth a visit. There are some low and narrow sections and you'll need to be sure footed and comfortable in closed spaces. If that's the case the Underground City is a must see if you're in the area.
  • It's an amazing experience. Make sure to bring close shoes because it's really slippery. Also, they have various tour guides with multiple languages. They might charge something around 20-50 TLY, depending on the size of your party. Make sure to get one as it will give you a better sense of what it was to live in there.
