  • You will surely be able to visit the Uchisar Castle, Goreme Open Air Museum, Paşabağı, underground cities etc etc. You can usually make the shopping from three beauties, Avanos and Ürgüpten also find a suitable place for your cut. I strongly recommend you to experience the pottery making in the Avanosta. Don't get on the balloon, it's already been robbed for 150 euros. When I say 150-200 TL is expensive in time.

I am amazed at my country that does not have these historical structures, hopefully someday it will change.
