Ideas for trip to Turkey

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planing a 23day trip to Turkey in August.
As we will be flying from Sydney-Australia I feel we may need a few days in Istanbul at both the beginning and end of the hoilday. Looking at pervious threads, most people suggest more than 3-4 days. So I thought maybe 3 days at the start and another 3 days at the end.
Will this be enough, if we want to also do a food tour around Istanbul (can anyone suggest a good tour) and also a day on the Bosphorus (again are there any suggestions)?
This will leave us with 17 days to see as much of Turkey as we can.
Most people seem to spend time along the west coast and then up though the middle via Cappadocia area. There is so much to see, it is hard to decide which areas to rule out and the ones we cannot miss. Is Pamukkale a must?
I have also noticed that few people include the area along the Black Sea. I like the look of Safranbolu and Trabzon, are these worth trying to include?
Should we try to drive everywhere or include some flights to help cover the vast area in a short time.
Looking forward to some helpful suggestion.
