Cappadocia is a land of true wonderment with a landscape resembling that of another planet entirely, where people of times past and present have sought shelter in houses carved out of the side of mountains and rocks, and where the cultures of multiple civilizations have combined to produce an extraordinary culture still visible today. The area is comprised with small villages and towns, like Uchisar and Goreme, where travellers can find a wide-range of Cappadocia hotels to stay the night.
The region of Cappadocia is located in the Central Anatolian region of Turkey and is easily accessible from all key cities of the country by various means of transportation in Turkey. It is serviced by both the Kayseri Airport and the Nevsehir Airport, and being only one hour's flight from Istanbul, it is popular choice for independent travellers. There are also bus connections to Cappadocia from many cities of Turkey, whilst obviously longer than a flight, the standard is quite high and prices very reasonable.
There are many Cappadocia tours available with many including a visit to the Open Air Museums - basically abandoned cave cities - as well the various Underground Cities. One very popular activity, would have to be a sunrise Cappadocia hot-air balloon tour, which provides an amazing view and perspective of the lunar-like landscape below.
One unique aspect to this fairy-tale land is the opportunity for travellers to actually stay in one of the remarkable Cappadocia Cave Hotels.Often dating back hundreds of years, these Cappadocia cave houses are decked out in modern and sometimes luxurious trimmings making for a truly unique experience!
In summer the average rate for a double cave room is between EUR 80 - EUR 120, with the more luxurious cave hotels in Cappadocia going for anything up to EUR 400 per night. In the winter expect prices to drop quite a lot, with averages for a standard double room at around EUR 30 - EUR 60.
