1- Cappadocia city:
The mysterious land, the love road, where you can genuinely fly with your beloved in the sky of Turkey, beyond the marvelous historical landscapes of Cappadocia.
Cappadocia is such a perfect winter detestation; anyway, we don't encourage you to visit it in summer times, it would be very crowded, and the weather is capable of frying your breakfast eggs quickly, while the stone cave is spread in the city.

It's not fair to mention the winter vacation and pass by Uludag mountains, the white city; Uludag is a mountainous region with one of the highest mountain peaks in Turkey and Europe.
The district belongs to the city of Bursa, which is 154 km from Istanbul; there are three means of transportation to go to Bursa from Istanbul, the car = 90 MIN, bus = 120 min, or water ferry (IDO) = 120 MIN.
At the highest peak of Bursa's mountains, many sports activities can be enjoyed during the winter, such as skiing, cable car rides, overseeing the city from the highest peak in its mountains, and even reaching the center of Bursa. What we really appreciate in Bursa is the several vital options that you can enjoy, not only the white hills are full of surprises, but also the city center of Bursa; actually, the city was the center of the Birth of the Ottoman Empire (Cumalıkızık), where you can go into the depth of the Ottoman history, discover their mysterious tales, have a traditional meal and meet the locals, who are always ready to accompany you in time travel trip.
