Trip Report Daytrip From istanbul: IZNIK (NICEA)

Jump to last reply

the first part of this thread is composed of Driving Directions.

you can also take an ido.com ferry from yenikapi to yalova and take a dolmus for the 60 kilometer route to iznik. The dolmus runs every hour on the hour and leaves next to the ferry landing.


If you are interested in roman and ottoman historic sites, tiles and life in a small Anatolian town, visit Iznik (Nicea)
renting a car for a day is the best idea to enjoy the route and the surronding area. This may be expensive but i would do it in your place.
- Ask to have the rental car delivered to yenikapi ferry landing at 7AM for the 7:30 Ferry, if you can. Delivery to your hotel will also work because there will be very little traffic at that early hour and the route from Sultanahmet or Taksim is easy.
- Ask your hotel reception to help you to get your ferry tickets by phone, 444 4436, the day before, including the return for the 7:30PM ferry, from and to YALOVA. You can buy by credit card, and swipe the same card through the machine at the booths to get your ticket,)
After landing, leave the landing through the underpass to go left, follow the main highway out of the town, streight through all intersections. Make sure not to exceed speed limit, as there are lots of radar on this stretch.
-20 kilometers will bring you to Orhangazi, where you check the road sign to turn left in the middle of the town at the traffic lights. Another 41 kilometers will bring you to Iznik. All together 50-60 minutes.
- For lunch, either eat at Yusuf Kofte on the main road through the city after the central roundabout, or one of the restaurants on the lake coast promenade.
- Visit the roman theatre, drive along the city walls, visit the historic tile kilns, the basilica, the hamam and the mosque built before the conquest of Istanbul.
- Get directions to drive up to the mausoleum on the hill behind the city for an excellent panoramic view of the town and the lake.
- Visit DARKA, 2 kilometers on the Yenisehir-Bursa highway, on your right, driving streight after the security, parking the car, walking to the lake side, and turning right to have something to drink at the restaurant, and maybe also bathe in the lake. (Let me know if you wish to do this and i will arrange for you to be allowed in DARKA)
On the way back, take a somewhat longer alternate scenic route:
- either, take a right at Boyalica village where the sign says Kizderbent/Karamursel, for a lovely 34 kilometer country road, to turn left at the highway at Karamursel for another 24 kilometers to Yalova fast ferry landing (all together about 75-90 minutes.)
- or take the Bursa road to drive on the Southern coast of the lake, more scenic, with some interesting former Greek villages on the way. This will also take about 75-90 minutes.
