In this full day excursion, you will have the chance to discover glorious Byzantine paintings in rock-cut churches.




Depart from the hotel and start walking in Ihlara Canyon, which is a 16 km (10 miles) long gorge cut into volcanic rock in the southern part of Cappadocia, following several eruptions of Mount Erciyes. The valley was the first settlement of the first Christians escaping from Roman soldiers. In the Ihlara Valley, see some of the hundreds of old churches in the volcanic rock caves. Lunch in Belisirma, a local restaurant by the river. Stop by Selime at the end of the canyon, a village with cave houses at the end of the canyon and a "star wars" like landscape. See Derinkuyu Underground City, which was the hiding place for the first Christians who were escaping from the persecution of the Roman Empire.

After the tour, return to your hotel.
