5 full days in Cappadocia - Mid March - help,with itinerary

Hello,

We will staying in Goreme from 16/3 - 22/3. We have 5 full days.

As we will have travelled from Australia we will be quite jet lagged.

Can the experts suggest how we should use the time wisely?

We would like to do 1 hr Balloon flight but other than that what do you suggest? We are in our mid 50's and enjoy walking/hikes. We are prepared to hire a car if necessary.

Thank you

You really don't need a car to go to Göreme open air museum. It's about 15-20 minutes walk from the centre of Göreme and you have to pay for parking there. It's best to go there early in the morning, so that you'll be done by the time most tour groups start arriving at about 10.

You should also definitely go to Cavusin and visit the biggest and oldest church in the area with is up there in the old abandoned part of the village https://www.facebook.com/media/set/… If you have a car and enough time, you can also go to Ortahisar and see the old abandoned village therehttps://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.366928326722813.85671.357922964290016&type=3 .

Wow, thanks for the great advise and links. I just hope we don't get the "ugly weather" mentioned in swampeatstmike's post!

We will be arriving in Cappadocia 2 weeks from today.

I think it may be worthwhile hiring a car for some of our stay - I think I'll organise it through the hotel when we arrive and I can see what the weather is like. We are staying at Kelebek hotel in Goreme.
