One of the highlights of Nevsehir, the underground city of Kaymakli is must on every list of things to do in Nevsehir! Set deep into the crust of the earth, this city is a formation eight levels under the ground. However, today, only four levels are open to the public. It is indeed an experience in its own, to go four levels below the surface of the earth. Administratively, it lies in the Central Anatolia Region of Turkey. It is a result of an excavation that took place in the 19th century, after which it was open for public access in the year 1964. It lies a little outside the city of Nevsehir at about 19-odd kilometers. Definitely a must-visit while in this city!

Kaymakli Reviews & Ratings
A wonderful experience for 42 Liras. It could have been better if the rooms were better labelled and explained on its uses and functions. It's a very bare bones walk through the tunnels. Apparently only 5% is open for public viewing. I think a guide would help.
Oh this is just amazing. It's something very mystic. This is part of GREEN TOUR, and that's why Green Tour can't be missed. The guide will tell you everything about it. And yup if you going on own please do get a guide, as details he/she can only tell you. It's crowded, man on man, somewhere you have to literally do duck walk as in there are tunnels, but it's must go. May be you can study and two about all it in advance and then go there to put best questions to your guide.
Cool to see, but you get the gist in the first 10-15 minutes. My husband and I didn't pay for a tour guide, save your money, there are so many people that you end up hearing the tour guides talk around you. Do not go here if you are claustrophobic!!
Visiting this underground city was one of the most unique experiences we have had. It is fascinating to see how people could build such a thing and to use it as their shelter. There are several floors underground with different rooms. Very narrow stairs and hallways and a fascinating ventilation system. Comfy shoes and water bottles are recommended.
Really fascinating place. It is huge. Apparently so far 4 floors have been excavated but there appear to be more judging by the ventilation shaft. Probably not a great idea to visit if you are claustrophobic as there are some fairly narrow tunnels. I would also try avoid it if it's too busy. There are red arrows which you follow to descend and blue ones to ascend. It's pretty well lit.
