Goreme National Park, Goreme
(4.8/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
Get a bird's eye view of the natural rock formations at Goreme National Park. As a World Heritage Site, the park's ancient structures have been protected from development. Many have been left untouched, though some were carved out and used as churches during the Roman period. More recently, some have been transformed into housing and restaurants. The park covers 40 sq km (15.4 sq mi), and while it may seem untraditional, the best way to see it is from above. Consider taking a hot air balloon ride over the entire park and, along with the landscape, you'll likely see dozens of other balloons in the distance. Ask your hotel for a suggestion on who to book with, as there are many companies throughout Cappadocia that organize these rides.

  • the open air museum would be the biggest attraction if it weren't for the fact that a lot of people and the disappointment of not being able to take some pictures ... at least to signal/documenting the great churches). ... The red tour maybe to have been done in a more customized (private tour) seemed better than the green one ... indispensable was the balloon flight!
