Located in Turkey’s Cappadocia region, the very small town of Goreme is part of this country’s most popular tourist destinations. Cappadocia dates back to possibly the sixth century, and the village of Goreme still retains its ancient history and charm. The city is best accessed by bus or car from Istanbul, while there’s also an option to fly into the airport at Kyseri and then take a taxi or car into Goreme.
Considering how small Goreme is, one can easily do a walking tour of the entire town in one day, making it possible to devote plenty of time for the town’s unique attractions, such as the Goreme Open Air Museum
and Uchisar Castle
The ancient underground cities of Cappadocia, and other attractions such as Monks’ Valley and Sunset Point are also within a short driving distance of Goreme, so plan ahead and parcel out the time in this area to allow for maximum exploration. The history and culture of Turkey is one that goes back to centuries before many other countries even came into existence, so of course the wealth of attractions is impressive.
