Mustafapaşa, Sobessos + Soğanli Valley Excursion

Between 4:30 am and 5:30 am we'll pick you up from your hotel in Istanbul and take you to the airport for your flight to Kayseri. Upon landing, we'll be waiting for you to start this fascinating tour of Cappadocia.

First, we'll visit the small village of Mustafapaşa, also known as Sinasos. This lost town in the Cappadocia region has a unique architectural style that perfectly preserves its Greek heritage. As we stroll around, we'll learn all about the history of Mustafapaşa, which has been shaped by both Greek Orthodox and Ottomans.

Before leaving Mustafapaşa, we'll stop at a restaurant for lunch. With our batteries recharged, we'll head to the ancient city of Sobessos. It's the only late Roman settlement in Cappadocia. This site is that it was discovered in 2002, with the remains of baths, an agora, a basilica and a bouleterion

The next stop of the day will be in the Soğanli Valley, an open-air museum where we'll see rock-hewn churches of different styles. We'll walk through the structures in this area as we discover the historical significance of this part of Cappadocia.

In the final stretch of the tour, we'll head to the Keslik Monastery to see the frescoes hidden inside, which can only be seen by torchlight! Over 2000 years old, this temple has had different uses that we'll reveal to you during the visit. Finally, we'll visit Avanos, famous for its pottery and handmade carpets.

Finally, you'll be dropped off at Kayseri airport for your flight back to Istanbul. Upon arrival, we will be waiting for you and take you back to your hotel after 13 hours of sightseeing.
