After getting picked up from your hotel, head to your first stop, the famous ‘Three Beauties of Ürgüp’. Here, admire mushroom-shaped rock formations and learn more about their geology from your expert guide. Your next stop is the ancient village of Mustafapaşa, where you can admire fine examples of ancient Greek architecture.

Later, drive through Taşkınpaşa which has some of the best examples of Seljuk architecture in the district, before arriving in Sobessos, a recently-discovered Roman archaeological site. Here, admire beautiful mosaics and Roman baths. Next, drive through Şahin Efendi, where you can observe typical local residents doing their daily chores, dressed in traditional costumes.
