Our guide and driver will meet you at your hotel at 09:00am and you will start touring in magical Cappadocia. We will first drive about 1 hour to get to Eski Gumusler Monastery which is the best protected one in Cappadocia region as it is a little further from the main living areas. The most interesting point about this monastery is the church. There is a scene in this church which is depicting The Virgin Mary while she is smiling. Even though it is probably because of a mistake on restoration, it is still worth seeing this fresco.
After visiting this beautiful monastery, we will drive to Guzelyurt (Gelveri) village. This village was accommodating the most crowded Christian population in Cappadocia until 1924. We will visit the Monastery Valley which includes some church including St. Gregory Church which is the oldest church in Cappadocia from 385 as well as visiting a small underground city. After having lunch, we will drive to Selime Monastery and Catedral. Selime was the biggest monastery in Cappadocia region. We will climb up to this majestic monastery and visit the sections of it. After this visit, we will start driving back to your hotel and we will drop you off around 4:30pm – 5:00pm.
