POST CONGRESS TOUR: CAPPADOCIA
June 21 ?23, 2014
Some three million years ago, violent volcanic eruptions covered the plateau in this area with tufa, a soft stone comprised of lava, ash and mud. Subsequently, the wind and rain have eroded the brittle rock to form a spectacular surrealistic landscape of rock cones and capped pinnacles, called FAIRY CHIMNEYS that are painted in colors ranging from warm reds and gold to cool greens and grays. During Byzantine times, Christian chapels and monasteries were hollowed out of the rock, and later these dwellings served as refuge for Christians, persecuted by the Romans.
Day 1: Early departure from Istanbul, flight to Kayseri-Nev?ehir and continue to Cappadocia region. Visit the underground, eleven-storied city of Kaymakli, see the extraordinary rock formations at Uchisar and the charming town of Urgup with its fairy chimneys. Lunch will be provided in the area, dinner and accommodation at a local hotel.
Day 2: Visit the rock dwellings, chapels and monasteries of the Goreme Valley, Zelve Valley, villages of Cavusin and Avcilar. Lunch will be provided in the area, dinner and accommodation at a local hotel.
