We visited Cappadocia with a 8 years old child, and even for him it was not hard to climb the mountains. Some cave buildings are abandoned, and that’s even more interesting to explore

About 15 minutes away from Goreme city centre, a little hike that is worthwhile the visit. Entrance fee is TL 30 and audio guide is TL 15. Prepare yourself to be amazed on the history and amaze balls architecture!

It is so good. You should go there and the landscape is excellent to take pics. I enjoyed there and I took a lot of photos in Acikhava Muzesi. There was a lot of tourists.

Being an orthodox, I just couldn't miss this gem. It's beautiful, mesmerizing and very touching. You can still see Byzantine crosses, typical orthodox frescos and icons. The dark church is 10 liras extra and totally worth it. I didn't want to leave. I could feel God's presence even after all these years. Too bad many faces are damaged, but that's part of human history. Make sure to avoid large groups of Chinese tourists. They are loud and very disrespectful, laughing inside the caves and prancing around in search of a better photo op.

If you have any interest in the Early Christian Church, it is a must-see. Before there were the massive cathedrals and basilicas of Europe, these chapels and monasteries were carved out of/into caves. The Dark Church is worth the extra fee. The guides are happy to show you all the hidden gems in the paintings.

Just a short walk from town, you can wander about at your own pace, take in the vistas, stop in other similar sites along the way—walk up the hill to see another small church complex, or down (towards town) to see the Al Nazar church—highly recommended over doing a motor coach tour trying to cover everything.

I went during the off season (March) and was alone until three buses showed up with tour groups at the same time. To avoid this (and the heat) making this an early morning stop might be the best option for having some elbow room.
