Early stages of planning for Turkey, need advice...

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are planning to visit Turkey in October 2013 (planning a bit early) for probably 14-17 days - not including travel days to/from Turkey from the US. I had posted a few questions about Istanbul and Cappadocia months ago, but we decided to extend our stay so I need some advice on the coast.

I am permanently in a small, manual wheelchair so I need recommendations from those that have visited different cities on the coast and can remember some details regarding the terrain. We are both 26-years-old and interested in history, ruins, picturesque sights, small towns, good food and shops. Honestly though, our destination doesn't require much to do- some of my favorite memories are strolling along the coast in Nice, France, enjoying good food and doing not much of anything else. Although I love being along the coast, we don't actually spend much time on the beach itself (very difficult with my chair) so while we'd like the area to be scenic, it doesn't have one of the best beaches - more concerned with the city/town itself.

One of the concerns in regard to choosing our coast destination(s) is how to get there. Buses are not an option - whether they claim to be accessible or not, I've had horrible luck with supposed accessible buses in Europe. We are not opposed to driving depending on the difficulty - the only time we've ever driven in Europe is through Tuscany. Flying always works well.

I've heard very good things about Kas, Fethiye, Marmaris and Bodrum, but I am open to all suggestions. A lot will depend upon finding accessible lodging.

Thanks so much!
