Start with a drive to Devrent Valley to see a geologic array of volcanic formations. Hear about how wind and air eroded these unique fairy chimneys over millennia. Continue to Pasabag (Monks Valley) to admire mushroom-like obelisks that look like something conjured up by Dr. Seuss. Next, cruise to Avanos and learn about Turkey’s age-old craft of pottery-making. Enjoy a chance to put your hands to work as you mold your own creative pottery during a workshop. Before heading to the Open-Air Museum, break for lunch in Goreme.
Then, duck in and out of the museum’s preserved Christian cave dwellings and discover chapels and churches covered in ancient frescoes. Leave the museum and head to your overnight accommodation in a fairytale cave hotel. (Suite Cave Room with Jacuzzi) Savor a pleasant dinner and enjoy a relaxed evening under the stars.
