Underground Cities

The region has many underground cities. The most well known one is Derinkuyu and Kaymakli.

Derinkiyu is the deepest one. 12 floors down under the ground. At that times they had everything in the underground city. Kitchens, Storage areas, School, Church, Houses, Common Area and so on. In Derinkuyu 30.000 people had lived. Amazing!
You can take a package daily tour like I did from Goreme. They take the tourists to to Pegion Valley, Derinkuyu Underground City, time off at lunch. The restaurant they take is by the river....fresh fish is great and included to the package tour. Then to Ihlara Valley...wow...what a place...trekking for a while...then to Uchisar Castle...sunset watch and turn back to Goreme!

I really enjoyed! The tour guide girl and the driver was very hot blooded...had lots of fun!
