Cosa vedere in Turchia: le città sotterranee in Cappadocia

NEVSEHIR, TURKEY - APRIL 17: A cave hotel is seen at sunset in the town of Goreme on April 17, 2016 in Nevsehir, Turkey. Cappadocia, a historical region in Central Anatolia dating back to 3000 B.C is one of the most famous tourist sites in Turkey. Listed as a World Heritage Site in 1985, and known for its unique volcanic landscape, fairy chimneys, large network of underground dwellings and some of the best hot air ballooning in the world, Cappadocia is preparing for peak tourist season to begin in the first week of May. Despite Turkey's tourism downturn, due to the recent terrorist attacks, internal instability and tension with Russia, local vendors expect tourist numbers to be stable mainly due to the unique activities on offer and unlike other tourist areas in Turkey such as Antalya, which is popular with Russian tourists, Cappadocia caters to the huge Asian tourist market.

Dopo quella di Nevsheir e di Derinkuyu, in Turchia è stata recentemente scoperta un’altra antica città sotterranea. Si trova nella provincia centrale di Kayseri, ed è composta da oltre 50 stanze.

Secondo le prime indiscrezioni, l’area archeologica potrebbe essere a breve accessibile ai turisti ed è unica nel suo genere in tutta la Cappadocia. A differenza delle sue “sorelle”, infatti, quest’ultima non è stata costruita in verticale, bensì in orizzontale.

Quelle citate sono alcune delle più note città sotterranee della Cappadocia, che ne conta oltre 200 su tutto il territorio, molte delle quali realizzate addirittura su 3 livelli di profondità. Le città di Derinkuyu e Kaymakli sono le più apprezzate dai turisti (quest’ultima addirittura è realizzata su 8 llivelli, di cui soltanto 4 visitabili).

Una cosa imperdibile da fare se vi trovate in queste aree è il tour in mongolfiera, molto richiesto, che vi regalerà un’esperienza davvero unica nel suo genere. Prenotatelo prima se potete ed evitate di volare in giornate ventose.

Per arrivare in Cappadocia, ci sono molti voli interni da Istanbul o da Ankara verso Kayseri o Nevsehir. Per chi ha più tempo e ama la strada, consigliamo un bel viaggio in pullman.
