Prime season: May-September
Cappadocia is a region in central Turkey, set about 1000 meter above sea-level. With a continental climate, the summers are hot and dry but the winters cold and snowy. So rooftop season in Cappadocia is only during the summer months. Rich in culture and historic features, Cappadocia is a very natural place, and there are no modern skyscrapers around. So while the rooftop bars found here are not set on high level floors, building using cliff- and mountain sides still offer grand views over the impressing landscape. While the rooftops are great to visit for lunch, dinner and drinks, the prime hour is sunrise and the show of hundreds of hot air balloons. To enjoy this, you should book a stay at one of the hotels listed above, as breakfast on the terrace is usually exclusive to hotel guests.
