  2. Devrent Valley is one of the most popular touristic valleys of the Cappadocia region. Within the open area of the valley, you can examine the rocks that resemble various animal figures. Especially the photographers visit Devrent Valley because of the rocks and fairy chimneys of different shapes. The vast majority of the rocks and fairy chimneys in the Devrent Valley have changed their color as a result of various natural processes such as rain, sun, and wind. Because of these stones which have a color similar to pink, this valley is also called Pink Valley. Another name of this valley is known as Imagination Valley.
  3. The next station within the scope of the tour will be the Paşabağları Valley in Avanos. This valley also has a popular name known by many people: the Monk Valley. This valley offers visitors a lot of information about the fairy chimney formation processes. Fairy chimneys, which have quite long and wide structures, fascinate the visitors.

In this way, you will have the chance to examine closely the structure of fairy chimneys.
  4. Our next destination on the first day of our tour will be the Zelve Open Air Museum. Cappadocia is home to two different open-air museums. Therefore, it is not a good idea to return here without going to at least one of these museums. Göreme Open Air Museum is a large area. Despite this, it is possible to say that some parts of the museum are still not open to visitors. There are close to fifteen churches in this large area. There’s a reason why there are so many churches here. These churches, built by Christians, were planned as retreat places. Many monks lived in the area, which was designed with geometric decoration as a Christian architectural method. The priests who wanted to completely isolate themselves from the city life served the churches here. People would come to these churches and visit the priests at any time.
  5. The last destination to be visited on the first day is Uçhisar Castle. This castle has a structure that allows you to watch the whole Cappadocia landscape from a very high point.

Many merchants from different regions would sell their products in the ancient city of Ephesus and buy various products from them. The ancient city of Ephesus was also a socially and culturally popular city. The Celcius Library was also visited by people from different regions. The ancient theater here was so big that 24,000 people could enter at the same time, and so many people from outside would entertain here.
