We travelled to Goreme in May by car. It was approximately 840 kilometres from Altinkum and cost about 500 lira for petrol. We planned the trip with overnight stops in both directions and did some sightseeing en route. By driving we were in a position to do a leisurely trip and to visit many of the historical sites in the greater Goreme area. We spent 6 nights in total on the trip and it was definitely a good decision.

We stayed in Aksehir on the way to Goreme and in Konya on the return journey. Aksehir splits the journey in half. Konya is quite a bit closer to Goreme but we stopped there as it has an interesting history, being the home of the whirling dervishes.
