What awaits you
Day 1: road, cave cities and valleys

In addition, the program includes a stop for breakfast with a picturesque view of the Tauride Mountains. Upon arrival in the "land of beautiful horses" you will visit:
- Underground city Saratli, by the example of which you will understand who, when and how lived in the caves of Cappadocia.
