Help with two weeks in Turkey

Jump to last reply

We will be visiting Turkey May 2013 for 12 days (not including fly in and out days). We will arrive from London. We are a couple in our early thirties with a child (will have turned 4 when we travel). Our tentative plan is as follows

Wednesday 5/8/2013 Day 1 Late arrival at Izmir (from London). Drive to Kusadasi
Thursday 5/9/2013 Day 2 Kusadasi (day at beach and about town)
Friday 5/10/2013 Day 3 Kusadasi (early visit to Ephesus then Selcuk)
Saturday 5/11/2013 Day 4 Drive to Pamukkale (via Aphrodisias)
Sunday 5/12/2013 Day 5 Day at Pamukkale / Heirapolis, then back to Izmir
Monday 5/13/2013 Day 6 Very early morning flight Izmir to Cappadocia
Tuesday 5/14/2013 Day 7 Cappadocia (Ballooning, then Goreme)
Wednesday 5/15/2013 Day 8 Cappadocia (Underground cities)
Thursday 5/16/2013 Day 9 Fly to Istanbul
Friday 5/17/2013 Day 10 Istanbul
Saturday 5/18/2013 Day 11 Istanbul
Sunday 5/19/2013 Day 12 Istanbul
Monday 5/20/2013 Day 13 Istanbul
Tuesday 5/21/2013 Day 14 Morning flight to Edinburgh

Aside from general feedback on the itinerary a few specific questions

a) Is 5 days in Istanbul too much given the overall trip is a fairly brisk 12 days. Would an extra day in Cappadocia make more sense
b) What is a good base, Selcuk or Kusadasi. We wanted to spend a day relaxing before we get ruined out with Ephesus, Aphrodisias, Pammukale/Hierapolis
c) Any alternate ideas on spending time in the Selcuk area. Is Pammukale worth it... other ideas instead of doing that drive which does seem a little out of the way.
