17 Days in Turkey in December

Jump to last reply

Plan to visit Turkey for 17 days with my wife and 20 year old daughter in December 2013 (12-29) of which the first or the last 2 days will be in Istanbul. Being from the tropics (India), we are not used to cold and wet winters. We love history, culture, architecture and the sea, although none of us can swim, which I understand is a no go in any case in December. This is our first trip to Turkey, but we'll do another one in May-June 2015/16 to visit destinations like, Cappadocia, Ankara, Konya, Istanbul (in details) and other summer destinations.

For this trip the Aegean and Mediterranean coast from Izmir to Alanya seems to be our best bet. It will be madness to even think of covering the entire stretch. And there lies the confusion... where to begin and where to end so that we can cover the sweet spots without running all over the place. Good weather, connectivity (we'll be using public transport), clean seas, nice and less crowded beaches, ancient sites are the critical elements. We are not too much into boat trips although we'll love to do the ones which are a must. Looking for your advice before finalizing the itinerary.
