A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sultanahmet District and Topkapi Palace. Get some historical perspective at Basilica Cistern and Galata Tower. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take a stroll through Ortakoy, get engrossed in the history at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Suleymaniye Cami .

Famed for its landscape of unusually shaped stone formations and churches cut into the natural rocks, Goreme sits in the central part of the country, an area originally settled during Roman times.
Goreme National Park and Uchisar Castle will appeal to history buffs. Cappadocia Cave Dwellings and Goreme Acikhava Muzesi are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's lots more to do: stroll through Cemal Ranch Horse Riding Center, stop by Sultans Ceramic, identify plant and animal life at Damsa Baraji, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.

You can do a combination of flight and taxi from Istanbul to Goreme in 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of bus, flight, and taxi; or drive.
