This city is so cool! Do pay for a guide outside the city to fully enjoy the experience! The price for a guide is generally 59 lira.

Visiting the Underground City was better than I expected it to be. Our guide outlined a few key points before we embarked on our tour, so we were prepared for the claustrophobia, the low ‘ceilings’ and tunnels. Hearing all this you start to have second...More

The things people had to do thousands of years ago to survive . . . and, likewise, the things you have to do to visit the site. Not for the claustrophobic, but does that not add to the experience ? The fact that these people...More

This is an underground city carved out by the early christians who lived here to hide. The place also provides insulation and protection from extreme weather. It is an amazing place and architectural marvel which dates back thousands of years. A must see when in...More

First, I'd like to note that this underground city will not be good for claustrophobic visitors. My husband had to go back out to the entrance early on in the tour. The operator also cautions against people who have asthma or heart conditions -- I...More

This was a very interesting tour but not for the faint-hearted. You need to make sure you have a good guide to explain the intracacies of what is where. It is best to go later in the day when it is less busy. We let...More

It was a rather amazing experience to tour the underground city - we were part of a tour group and so had a guide with us to explain along the way (where the winery is, the kitchen, ventilation, etc). However, this is not recommended for...More

This underground city is located 9km away from the Derinkuyu. I love this place as it amazed me with the complex passages and tunnel. There were a lot of tourists when I get there which made me feel uncomfortable exploring the narrow passages of the...More

When under siege, locals from the 8th to 7th centuries began to move their families and their livestock underground. There are kitchens, churches and lots of wine storage areas-they had to have something to entertain themselves. The volcanic rock is comparatively easy to chisel, and...More
