Description

Wander between the fascinating formations around Cappadocia's Devrent Valley, explore Greek ruins in Ephesus, and take a dip in soothing thermal baths surrounded by glowing white limestone cliffs. Discover Turkey's hinterland on this 4-day excursion to Cappadocia, Pammukale, and Ephesus.

Day 1
After taking an overnight bus from Istanbul, spend the morning meandering around the Devrent Valley's “fairy chimneys,” so named because of their unique silhouette. In nearby Göreme, investigate churches that were carved into these strange rocks, and snap a few photos from the stunning vistas at Uchisar Castle.

Day 2
Take a stroll down the lanes of an ancient underground city at Kaymakli, learn about the Christians that hid from persecution there, and then wrap up your day with a eye-opening trip through a valley home to one of the world's largest collections of pigeons. in the evening, board a spacious bus for the comfy overnight ride to Pamukkale for another day of adventures.

Day 3
Relax and recharge in the limestone-surrounded thermal baths of Pamukkale, learn about the geological forces that keep the temperature just right for a leisurely soak, and check out a local archaeological museum to find out how the Romans used the area as their own spa retreat.

Day 4
Spend your last day wandering through the ruins of ancient Greek temples and courtyards as you dive into the remnants of Ephesus. Peek in at the exhibits of the Ephesus Archaeological Museum, and see the foundations of the Temple of Artemis, built in the 7th century BC. When it's time to head back to Istanbul, hop on a comfortable coach and enjoy your evening return, passing through ochre-hued valleys and rolling hills on the way.
