WHERE IS CAPPADOCIA?
Once a province of the Roman Empire, Cappadocia is now the sprawling area of central Turkey which lies between Aksaray in the west, Kayseri in the east and Nigde in the south. Modern Cappadocia is an incredible place, criss-crossed with valleys and dotted with dramatic rock formations. Whatever your expectations you are unlikely to go home disappointed.
There are many tour options that TURCO Travel organizes to see these highlights. You can also hire a car, motorbike or scooter and make up your own itinerary as you go.
By far the best way to get your bearings is to float gently over the landscape in a hot-air balloon, picking out the many valleys as you go. Or you can take your time and explore the valleys on foot. Alternatively, why not saddle up and explore the back roads on horseback, following in the hoof tracks of the first European explorers?
