Anadolujet has an evening non-stop flight in each direction between Antalya
(AYT) and Nevşehir-Kapadokya Airport (NAV) in Cappadocia (map) in summer (April to late September). These flights take a little over an hour.

Air via Istanbul, with a flight time of about 3.5 hours or more.
There are flights between Antalya
and Ankara. Then you must take
a bus or drive (4-1/2 hours) from Ankara to Cappadocia. More...
Overnight buses run
between Antalya and Nevşehir,
about 9 or 10 hours. From Nevşehir,

for a meal or overnight stop), then
through mountain country down to the Mediterranean
