30 Mar How to get to Cappadocia?
Cappadocia is accessible by plane through the two airports of the region, in Kayseri and Nevsehir. There are daily flights from Istanbul with Turkish Airlines (www.thy.com). Sun Express (http://www.sunexpress.com.tr) has some flights from Izmir and Pegasus (www.flypgs.com) flies in high season from Antalya.
Kayseri Airport is the largest and most important in the region of Cappadocia. It has a modern terminal, at 75 kilometers from Göreme and one hour’s drive to Cappadocia.
Located in Tuzkoy, Nevsehir Airport is at 30 kilometers (19 miles) northwest of the city of the same name and has several daily flights to and from Istanbul through Turkish Airlines, in addition to receiving charter flights.
The night bus from Istanbul to Cappadocia is the cheapest way to travel to the region, but takes between 10 and 12 hours to travel the 730 miles that separate them. Several companies have night buses, including Metro Turizm and Seyahat Nevsehir.
Between Antalya and Nevsehir are several night services with journey times of between 9-10 hours. From Nevsehir, you can continue to Cappadocia by minibus. If you think is too long you can stay overnight in Konya, visit this interesting city and continue your trip to Nevsehir in the next day.
From the Main Terminal of Ankara (Asti) to Nevsehir, buses depart every two hours (and vice versa). It takes about 4 ½ hours, including a stop of 25 minutes. The ticket price is 30 TL.
La terminal de autobuses de Nevsehir (Otogar) está a unos 25 kilómetros al oeste de la mayoría de los pueblos de Capadocia, como Göreme, Uçhisar y Ürgüp. Al llegar a la Nevşehir Otogar, puede tomar un transfer en minibús (su precio generalmente va incluido en el billete) a una de estos destinos.
The Nevsehir Bus Terminal (Otogar) is about 25 kilometers west of most of the towns of Cappadocia, as Göreme, Uchisar and Ürgüp. From the Nevsehir Otogar (bus station) you can take a minibus shuttle (usually price is included in the ticket) to one of these destinations.
