I’ve been fumbling with this itinerary a lot, so please take a look and let me know what you think and if it’s feasible. We are a couple in our mid 40s, enjoying culture, nature, nice scenery, good food, history, photography, traveling in general.

Day 1 – Landing in Istanbul early afternoon
Days 2, 3 and 4 – Istanbul
Day 5 – Early morning flight to Izmir, visit Ephesus, sleep in Selcuk
Day 6 – Fly to Cappadocia
Day 7, 8 and 9 – Cappadocia, stay in Goreme. We will probably rent a car/driver for at least a day here, and use buses otherwise
Day 10 – Fly to Dalaman via Istanbul; we’ll be there around noon, rent a car, go see the ruins at Dalyan, sleep in/around Kayakoy (Villa Rhapsody if available)
Day 11 – Visit Tlos + Telmessos, sleep in Kayakoy
Day 12 - Visit Pinara + Patara, maybe explore Kalkan, sleep in Kas - any suggestion?
Day 13 – Visit Xanthos + Letoon, explore Kas, sleep in Kas
Day 14 – Boat to Kekova and visit Myra if enough time, sleep in Cirali - any suggestion?
Day 15 – Visit Olympos, explore Cirali, sleep in Cirali
Day 16 – Drive to Antalya, return car, fly home.

Is there time on any day to fit the Saklikent Gorge? Maybe just for a couple of hours? Are we missing anything that we might regret later? Where is the church of Saint Nicholas, that I keep reading about? Close to Myra, I think…but how do we find it? Are the ruins on the Lycian Way very similar to each other, that we will get ruins overload?

Any other thoughts or words of wisdom that you want to share? Thanks
