10 Day Trip to Turkey

Jump to last reply

I'll be heading to Turkey early fall for about 10 days excluding travel days. After doing research I plan on heading to the Aegean Coast/Ephesus, Cappadocia and Istanbul. I've planned out the must-dos in each location, but have 1-2 days currently open that I could add to one of the sites. Any thoughts on where they would be best used?

We're in our early 30s and like a mix of cities, natural scenery and historical sites plus want to spend a day or two at the beach. We plan on having a car in Cesme and maybe in Cappadocia as well.

Day 1 - Cesme, beach day
What are the best natural springs in the area to visit?

Day 2 - Ephesus
Drive to Selcuk and Ephesus for the day. See Ephesus, House of Virgin Mary, Basilica of St. John and Ephesus Museum. Better to go to Ephesus last for fewer crowds?

Day 3 - Open
Considering a couple of options for this day: another beach day, taking the ferry to Chios or exploring more ruins in the area. Does anyone have any thoughts on Chios or are there any other major ruins within an hour or two that are worth visiting? We're planning to leave Aphrodisias / Pamukkale out because of the distance.

Day 4 - Morning beach, afternoon fly to Cappadocia

Day 5 - Cappadocia
Goreme Open Air Museum, Zelve Valley, Avanos

Day 6 - Cappadocia
Hot air balloon flight, Kaymakli underground cities, Üçhisar
Evening flight to Istanbul

Day 7 - Istanbul
Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, Basilica Cistern

Day 8 - Istanbul
Topkapi Palace, Sogukçesme Sokagi, Grand Bazaar, Turkish bath, Bosphorus tour ferry

Day 9 - Istanbul
Open

Day 10 - Istanbul
Morning open
Afternoon flight
