Goreme Things to Do: 251 reviews and 622 photos
The underground cities are remarkable not only because these people had everything they needed in their underground world, and that they could live in such a manner, but as well for the huge undertaking of building these cities. Derinkuyu (the largest one) occupies a total area of 1500m squared (and that is only the excavated area!), and is 8 floors deep, about 60m.
Also one tunel, that has not been fully dug out, is thought to have connected to another underground city, Kaymakli, 9km away. Imagine building that tunel!!! Plus lots of the tunels are not very big, I had to duck often, and I'm not a tall guy (165cm), so I would not recomend to claustrophobics.
