Goreme, located among the "fairy chimney" rock formations, is a town in Cappadocia, a historical region of Turkey. The time that the Goreme was first settled is unclear, but it could date back as the Hittite era, between 1800 and 1200 B.C. The location was central between rivaling empires, such as the Greeks and Persians. During the Roman era, the area became home to Christians retreating from Rome. Its main sights include the Ortahane, Durmus Kadir, Yusuf Koc and Bezirhane churches, in addition to the richly decorated Tokali Kilise, the Apple Church, and a number of homes and pigeon houses carved straight into the rock formations in the town.

Alanya is a beach resort city and a component district of Antalya Province on the southern coast of Turkey, in the country's Mediterranean Region. Because of its natural strategic position on a small peninsula into the Mediterranean Sea below the Taurus Mountains, Alanya has been a local stronghold for many Mediterranean-based empires.

Other landmarks are Alanya Gardens, Aquapark, Archeology Museum, and the Damlatas Caves.
