Our professional guide and the driver will pick you up at your hotel at 9.30 am. Our first stop is the amazing Derinkuyu Underground City. Used to be known as Melagobia, Derinkuyu was one of the biggest settlements in Cappadocia and its 8 level underground city is the deepest of the region today.
We will explore the caves of this interesting city and talk about the way of life here. After departing Derinkuyu, we will drive further south to the magnificent verdant Ihlara Valley. We walk alongside the Melendiz River for about 1.5 hour which winds its way through the Ihlara gorge, stopping for lunch in a restaurant on the river in the village of Belisirma.
We continue to the Selime Monastery, the largest rock-cut monastery in Cappadocia with large cave cathedral and breathtaking views over the area. On our way back to Goreme we stop at the spectacular vista point overlooking Pigepon Valley. Our final stop will be at a local onyx factory to see a demonstration on carving and shaping onyx. You will arrive back at your hotel around 17.30 pm.
