Istanbul-Denizli-Antalya

Jump to last reply

Ok, we've decided on dates and I'm starting a new thread for your suggestions/comments. Our schedule is as follows:

Sept 28 - arr Istanbul 11am, check into hotel
Sept 29 to Oct 1 - Istanbul
Oct 1 - overnight bus to Denizli
Oct 2 - arr Denizli, rent car, check into hotel and visit Pamukkale/Aphrosidias
Oct 3 - take bus to Antalya, check into Belek Calista resort hotel
Oct 3 to 6 - Antalya, with day trips to Aspendos, Perge and Side
Oct 6 - morning flight to Istanbul, to connect to our international flight at 6pm

Otherchelebi, I know you suggested I keep Pamukkale for next June when we plan to visit Turkey again, but unfortunately I'll be with some others who aren't too keen on going there, so will have to do it on this trip.

Have a few questions for my Fodorite friends. First, your suggestions for a hotel at Pamukkale, we're not looking for anything very fancy.

I guess I'd better book a car at Denizli and Antalya for our day trips, any rental companies to avoid? Do you suggest a diesel vehicle? Any other dos and don's?

We'll get the museum pass for Istanbul, can this be bought online? Plan to get our visa too online so that we don't have to wait in line on arrival.

Had bookmarked several Turkey trip reports, will go through them in detail for more tips and ideas.

Thanks in advance!
