Next, visit the cave town of Cavusin, which features abandoned homes carved into the rock cliffs. In the village of Avanos, meet local ceramics artisans and hear about the terracotta ceramics that have been made in the village for thousands of years.

Take a break for a buffet-style Turkish lunch served in a traditional cave setting.
