Driving from Istanbul to Cappadocia

Hi,

We'll be visiting Istanbul in February for a week and are thinking of driving from Istanbul to Cappadocia (approx 800kms) as an adventure trip and also to experience the hot air baloons in Cappadpcia.

Please e share your experiences or advise on car rentals, weather & driving in Turkey.

Kind Regards,

Abdullah

    It is cheaper and more comfortable to fly from Istanbul to Cappadocia (Nevsehir or Kayseri). Nevsehir Airport is closer to Cappadocia. You may find flights almost everyday with Turkish Airlines. You may rent a car in Cappadocia to explore the area. Do not miss Ihlara Vadisi , the underground cities Derinkuyu Underground City and Kaymakli Spending 2 or 3 full days would be enough to see the most important attractions in Cappadocia.

    Personally, I would just fly. It's a very long drive and while the landscape is interesting, it's a lot of the same thing for a long, long time. Very monotonous. The one good thing is that you can plan it so that you can stop at Ankara, which is interesting, but I would say not as interesting as Istanbul or Cappadocia.

    I also considered this option, until I found out that Pegasus Airlines has also everyday flights and it is much cheaper than Turkish Airlines. Like this, you can spend more time in Cappadocia which has so much to offer. :)
