How to reach Nevsehir

Nevşehir is a province in central Turkey with its capital in Nevşehir. It adjacent provinces are Kırşehir to the northwest, Aksaray to the southwest, Niğde to the south, Kayseri to the southeast, and Yozgat to the northeast. Nevşehir includes the area called Cappadocia - a very popular tourist attraction in Turkey.

From Istanbul to Cappadocia
You have a choice of ways to travel the 730 km (454 miles) from Istanbul to Cappadocia, in central Anatolia.
 
By Plane
Fastest, and inexpensive if you purchase your ticket in advance, are several daily nonstop flights from both Istanbul's Atatürk Airport (IST) and Sabiha Gökçen Airport (SAW) to Kayseri's Erkilet Airport (ASR) and Nevşehir's Kapadokya Airport (NEV) on Turkish Airlines, Pegasus Airlines, Anadolu Jet.
 
Conference shuttle vans can take you from both airports directly to your Cappadocian hotel for a fee (15 Euros).
 
If you're arriving from abroad and you plan to visit both Istanbul and Cappadocia, consider leaving your Istanbul visit until the end of your trip. Arrive at Istanbul's Atatürk Airport International Terminal on your international flight, walk to the Domestic Terminal, and catch a flight directly to Cappadocia (if the connection timing works.) You'll save yourself a back-and-forth transfer from the airport and an unpacking and repacking at your Istanbul hotel.
 
Turkish domestic flights are often much more expensive if purchased outside of Turkey, so you should consider having a good Turkish travel agent make your internal flight reservations, or make them yourself on the airline's website. Turkish travel agencies can help with any other arrangements (private guides, hotels, rental cars, yacht cruises) you may need as well. 
 
By Train
High-speed trains connecting Istanbul with Ankara and Konya are in service. From Konya you can continue to Cappadocia by bus or rental car (232 km/144 miles, 4 hours).
 
By Bus
A night bus from Istanbul to Cappadocia is usually the cheapest way to go (about TL85), but it's a long ride—730 km (454 miles, 10 to 12 hours). Still, if you can sleep on buses, this may be your favored way as it takes you directly between the two points. Several companies run nightly buses, including Metro Turizm and Nevşehir Seyahat.
 
By Car
It's a long drive (800 km/500 miles; map), 8 hours without stops, and it only makes economic sense if several people share the car and the fuel expense.
 
Use the E-80 otoyol (expressway) between Istanbul and Ankara to save time, then follow the E-90 highway south from Ankara to Aksaray, then go east along D300, the ancient Silk Road, to Nevşehir. This way you avoid the heavy long-distance truck traffic along the alternate route, E88/D765 via Kırıkkale and Kırşehir.

You can visit the page for more information about reaching Cappadocia from other cities in Turkey.
