The tour starts with Kaymaklı Underground City which is one of the most interesting underground settlement in Cappadocia. The underground city was originally carved out as eight floors; however four floors are visit able. In wartime about 5000 people can refuge in. Soganli valley, an open air museum in a wild natural setting near a typical Cappadocian village with its different style rock-cut churches and frescoes. Villages in the valleys, surrounded by the ‘’table top’’ mountains, are spectacular. The valley was continuously inhabited since the earliest days of the Christian era, has churches that date from the 9th to 13th centuries. Some of the churches contain inscriptions giving the exact dates of construction and thus have provided scholars with valuable clues to help date other churches in Cappadocia.
