Göreme, Turkey, is right in the middle of the magical, world-famous rock formations known as fairy chimneys. Views of the Rose, Honey and Pigeon Valleys further enchant, while sleeping in one of the hotels or hostels carved into a sandstone cave is sure to give even your dreams a wondrous tinge. Explore the small, tight-knit village on foot and marvel at the wind hewn rocks, or travel a bit farther afield to an underground city. Shop for some pottery to take home, although no souvenir can adequately capture the sheer experience of wandering the natural landscape.

    Goreme is the principle town in Cappadocia and easily the best place to stay. The town boasts many cave houses and hotels. Among the best are Kelebek and Kismet. Goreme is also home to a handful of excellent restaurants that serve authentic Anatolian food.

    Goreme is a small fantastic town in Cappadocia. There are plenty of restaurant and tour agency in the center. Most landscapes are amazing for me.

    Wow! stunning landscape. It's worth the 12 hour bus ride or the flight. Check the prices of flights vs. buses, sometimes the flights ( to Nevesir only a 40 min drive to Goreme ) can be only 10 to 20 dollars more. Cute little town and really easy to just head out on foot to go hiking for the day. I would return again and again!

    There is such a great energy in this little town, known for its rock-hewn hotels and homes. The surrounding area is gorgeous as well. A tour will introduce you to the pigeon valley, the underground city, local fare and the the pottery crafted in the region.

    Goreme, in Cappadocia, is one of those magical places. The setting is unique with its famous fairy chimneys and proximity to so many sites where Western Civilisation began. A balloon trip is a never to be forgotten experience, as is a visit to underground cities where early christians hid from the Romans for months at a time. The people are friendly and the welcome iis warm.

    Wonderful place to visit with many quirky shapes and forms created from different types of lava together with time through weather conditions. If you have possibility to stay in one of the cave hotels I warmly recommend it.

    So you decided to do a trip to Greece and Turkey. You're a smart person, and I bet you were more excited about Greece. Yep, me too. If you're into nature and the outdoors, Turkey will become one of your favorite countries and likely trump Greece. Goreme is a town, in the land of Cappadocia and where you begin your adventures. This town is quaint, but the day hikes are incredible. The caves, Love Valley, the Monastaries, this is a must do, and my absolute favorite in all of Turkey!

    A magical place! The soft volcanic tuff that has eroded to create this beautiful lunar landscape complete with cave hotels, underground cities, balloon rides to the heavens. The people are very friendly and the value is incredible. I love the food. The history is amazing as well. And this is the best place on the planet for balloon rides!

    It is the most amazing and majestic place I have ever been to! Breath-taking landscape! You have to take the hot balloon ride. Everyday there are over 80 balloons taking off at dawn. It is a sight itself!
