We think that you can finish this tour in an average of two days, although of course, it varies according to your travel speed. Best of all, let's start to give you historical information about our route first.
Contrary to general belief, the Roman Emperor Constantine I had not lived Christianity throughout his life. As a matter of fact, Constantine was a pagan and did not want to surrender his culture, which was formed by Paganism, to this monotheistic religion for many years. So much so that he persecuted his Christian people and even sent them into exile. Constantine believed in Paganism until his deathbed. Shortly before he died, he was baptized and became a Christian and announced this to the whole country. So why are we telling you this? Let's explain that.
The persecution of the Roman Emperor Constantine I against the Christians was quite severe, as we have just mentioned. The monotheist people of Rome, who wanted to get rid of these cruelty, run away from the city. They both retreated and made great efforts to spread Christianity throughout Anatolia. During this period, they built many sanctuaries for themselves in fairy chimneys made of tuff, which are very easy to carve and shape. They created so many buildings, from monasteries to churches, from communal dining tables to homes and even underground cities, that they officially set an example of urban planning. Well, what we have for this tour? We have prepared a legendary route from archaeological sites to underground cities right through history.
If you are ready, let's start our route.
