I believe this tower on the right bank of the Golden Horn was built by the Genovese in the 14th century. You take an elevator to the top floor and then climb a spiral staircase to a cafe that's surrounded by a viewing deck that offers a simply amazing view of the city. Ordering a Turkish coffee and sitting down at a window-side table was an awesome experience.
At the top of the mountain overlooking Göreme, on the way to the city of Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, we found a beautiful vantage point where you can see all the people, and what was even more beautiful: the view of Cappadocia. Fairy chimneys, cave houses, forms that are sharply tipped, mushroom-shaped buildings .Everything is possible in Cappadocia. Additionally, this vantage point is a place where you can find a few "souvenirs" shops with fun things like: discs, eyes of luck that you hang on a tree, Turkish ice cream, hookah. A splendid place to visit before going to Capadocia.
From the top of the mountain overlooking Çavusin you have the 1st sighting of the amazing formations of Cappadocia called "fairy chimneys". So far in our journey we saw houses carved in rock, Byzantine churches, and mountains in what seem to be impossible ways ... But certainly what catches your attention of the formations of Cappadocia will be the latter.
On the way along the small road toward the castle, you will see these little ads that read: "Panorama Restaurant, recommended by Lonely Planet." It's a great place to unwind with a bottle of beer or a pint, or to try a combination with natural orange juice, which is what the waiter recommended. From the top, you can see all of the coast. The dubious cleanliness of the kitchen that you can see on the way to the bathroom, doesn't make it very appetizing to stay for lunch.
The force of nature has created one of the wonders of Cappadocia: The "fairy chimneys" (conical towers capped with volcanic basalt rock), creating a feeling of equilibrium where the towers look like tightrope walkers.
