CAPPADOCIA MINI TOUR


"Think of a huge cave without a top, where the stalagmites, some of them as high as ten-story buildings, are exposed to the sun and the deep blue sky. Think of them as blush pink. It is as if suddenly the moon landscape which we are now familiar with in its desolate beautiful skeletal forms, were to become a Garden of Eden, for they are surrounded and permeated with vineyards, with fields of bright vegetables and fruit, with lush river valleys and lines of formal cypress trees growing along their banks, green below the brown and fawn level of the high plains of central Anatolia."
