We visit this place in our second day in Goreme and it was well worth it. Plenty climing steps but those small churhes were all very neath to see. Take water with you, everywhere you go around the attractions are twice as much as price...More

Must do this! Audio not worth it and hard to follow. The plaques told just as much. If you can avoid the heat of day you’d enjoy it more. And the shirts in the gift shop can be found for half as much elsewhere.

This was part of the red tour. Being out all day the day before with the green tour, this was a bit much for us. Wear flat shoes.

This is a collection of churches that were hewn from the rock and then painted and fresco-ed with various scenes. Some of the best scenes are in the church where you have to pay additional Turkish lira to view but it is well worth 2.00...More

The open-air museum is only few minutes drive from Göreme town. It has a big space of ancient cave monasteries.

We were disappointed that the museum closed ticket sales a good 45 minutes prior to the closing time stated at the ticket booth without any explanation. Many tourists that arrived well in time to see the museum were refused entry. I would suggest doing this...More

The museum is outstanding. Visiting the different caves, the wall paintings and just thinking when they were constructed is just amazing. The wall paintings, their age and the beauty just leave you in awe. Fully worth the time to visit the museum

Likely the highlight of our Cappadocia trip, explore the one-of-a -kind cave monasteries of Cappadocia here.

No, not in the centre of town but a pleasant walk of about 10 minutes. Wonderful place to walk around and worth paying a little extra to see the Dark Church. A very beautiful place and do not miss it
