Day 7 – Cappadocia (B,L,D)

After breakfast, we set off on a full day excursion that includes lunch. We begin our explorations of the famous and intriguing valley of Cappadocia, a unique region in which Nature has created an incredibly strange and colorful world of cones, columns and needles that were shaped by the wind and water erosion of the area's volcanic tuff. Some of these strange shapes are as tall as 100 ft.  But it is not only the Natural landscape that is unique here. Our forefathers used the soft features of the stone to carve out this fantasy-like environment into homes, stables, shops, churches, hospitals, etc. etc.  Many early Christians painted the walls of their chapels with their own renditions of Bible stories.  Some of these frescoes are incredibly beautiful, attesting to the skills and religious fervor of the faithful. Among the places we will visit are Goreme Open Air Museum, Uchisar Fortress, Kaymakli Underground City, and Pasabey  We will enjoy our dinner and overnight stay in our hotel in Cappadocia.
