DAY 1 : ARRIVAL CAPPADOCIA
Arrival to Istanbul and transfer domestic flight to CAPPADOCIA. After Arrival to KAYSERI/NEVSEHIR, our guide will welcome you. Then we will have lunch at a local restaurant .

We will visit Cappadocia’s main attraction: the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Göreme Open Air Museum, a vast monastic complex comprising churches, monasteries and dwellings, as well as its underground city. Thought to have started life as a Byzantine monastic settlement, Göreme Open Air Museum became a pilgrimage site during the 17th century and is a must-see location for all visitors to Cappadocia. The rock-hewn churches contain wonderful frescoes, whose colours are still vivid after hundreds of years.

We will also visit one of Cappadocias fascinating underground cities (Derinkuyu or Kaymakli, depending on availability and other local considerations). It is believed that these cities were formed as early as the 8th century BC by the Phrygian people to protect their inhabitants from wars and conflicts taking place above ground. The dwellings continued to be used until the early 20th century, when they were abandoned.

DAY 3 : ANTALYA- PAMUKKALE
This morning we will drive to Antalya and we will visit Aspendos, considered to be the best-preserved theatre of the ancient world. Once named Belkis, the city of Aspendos was founded by the Hittites, but it was Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius (161-180 AD) who ordered the 15,000-seater theatre to be built, which is still used for performances.

After lunch, we will visit the ancient Kaleiçi (old city). With its narrow, cobbled streets and historic Ottoman-era houses, the Kaleiçi has retained much of its historical character while hosting a plethora of bars, restaurants and shops. During our walk, you will see Hadrians Gate (also known as the Triple Gate due to its three archways), the old Roman harbour and the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.

DAY 4 : PAMUKKALE- KUSADASI
Today, we will drive to the unique site of Pamukkale, also known as Cotton Castle. This spectacular natural phenomenon was created by deposits from thermal waters that cascaded down the mountainside over hundreds of years, forming myriad pools and terraces. As the water overflows from the pools, dazzling cream-coloured stalactites are formed that, from afar, resemble cotton or snow. The pools are filled with hot spring waters that supposedly have healing properties. Close to Pamukkale there are the ruins of Hierapolis, which was founded by the King of Pergamon in 190 BC and by the 2nd century AD had become an important Roman bath centre. The extensive ruins of Hierapolis are well worth exploring and include a theatre, temple, holy area, monumental fountain, bath, basilica and necropolis. We will spend the afternoon discovering the travertines and ancient city.

After tour, we will drive to hotel in Kusadasi to have dinner and rest.

DAY 5 : KUSADASI-ISTANBUL
Tour starts with Ephesus Museum that is one of the best-preserved classical cities in the eastern Mediterranean and a great example of Greco-Roman architecture. Always an important religious centre, Ephesus was founded by Ionian Greeks in the 11th century BC and flourished under Roman rule. The Greeks replaced the cult of the Anatolian fertility goddess Cybele with Artemis and built a fabulous temple in her honour. With the arrival of the Romans, it became the Temple of Diana and was one of the original seven wonders of the ancient world. We will visit the vast amphitheatre, stroll the marble streets once graced by Cleopatra and Mark Antony, and marvel at the gymnasium, baths and wonderfully restored Library of Celsus.
