There is nothing more tempting than spending two whole days in the most amazing place on the whole planet – in the mysterious Cappadocia. Local landscapes excite the mind, and the number of unsolved mysteries only gives this region a special charm. Excursion Mania invites you on an excursion expedition to the most memorable places in the lunar landscapes – unforgettable moments await you!
Be prepared to get up early – we have to leave early in the morning in order to arrive in Cappadocia on time. To make your trip as comfortable as possible, you will go to Cappadocia on a modern bus equipped with comfortable seats with legroom, as well as air conditioning.
Your tour in Cappadocia begins in the morning – as soon as the sun appears over the horizon – you will find yourself surrounded by incredible architecture and picturesque landscapes. You will get acquainted with the culture of Cappadocia at the Mevlana Museum – one of the symbols of Turkey today is the image of whirling dervishes. Here you will not only see with your own eyes the symbols of this mystical teaching, but also dive deeper into that mysterious atmosphere. Continue your acquaintance with the culture of travel in the local Caravanserai – earlier, it was in such structures that travelers stayed for the night. A very authentic building immerses you in the atmosphere of oriental trade – it was within these walls that lucrative deals were concluded.
The next attraction of Cappadocia hid from prying eyes under layers of volcanic rock – the underground city of Saratli. In many ways, life in Cappadocia was able to take place because of the soft tuff, which could save hundreds of thousands of human lives. Here people could hide and arrange their life. Everyone must visit these dungeons to feel the spirit of Cappadocia. The evening ends with check-in at the hotel – after all, our tour is designed for 2 days, which means you will not only spend time in the valleys of Cappadocia, but also spend the night in this fabulous place. You can always diversify your Cappadocia trip with a hot air balloon flight or a delightful Turkish night in one of the local restaurants (booked and paid separately).
In the morning you will have a tour of the most colorful valleys of Cappadocia. Among the stops we visited are such amazing places as the Devrent Valley – aka Imagination Valley with its quirks and unusual sculptures; Pashabag Valley or Monks Valley with a whole string of Cappadocian “mushrooms” – small pillars with two or even three caps; panorama of Goreme – the most famous city of Cappadocia, which personifies the amazing fate of the Christian faith, which experienced its difficult times here. The infamous Valley of the Pigeons, which overlooks the empty dovecotes, is another visiting card of Cappadocia.
The last stop before returning to Alanya will be the Uchisar fortress – a defensive structure – a real fortress, which was cut right into the rock. Advantageous location and impregnable vaults made it possible to perfectly defend Uchisar from invaders. Here you will find the famous fairy chimneys – about which more than a dozen legends and tales have been added. On such a fabulous note, our trip to Cappadocia ends – the bus returns back to Alanya.
