How to get to Cappadocia
You can reach Cappadocia from the capital city of Turkey Ankara 4 hours drive by car and from Istanbul about 10 hours drive by car.
The rock formations of Cappadocia and some underground caves have played a large role in the history of the region, therefore gaining its inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. Since Neolithic times, many have used the caves and rocks as homes. They gained a lot of their fame in the 9th – 11th century when the Byzantines painted thousands of Christian frescoes on the walls and ceilings. This continued until the Seljuks conquered the area.
Still people lived in the caves, and they still do today. In fact, if you go to Cappadocia, yo will enter many. Some are now museums, some are shops or cafes, and I even saw one that is a police station. However, the most popular for tourists are the cave hotels, of which I’ve stayed in many. Some are much more luxurious than others.
In Goreme, you can walk up and down the valley, on narrow streets, and everywhere there are homes and hotels built into the rock formations. It really is a magical place.
