Itinerary help needed!

Jump to last reply

My SO and myself are planning a vacation to Turket in May of this year for my birthday. We are thinking of staying either 7 or 8 days- flying out of the states on Thursday evening (May 7 specifically) and flying back that next Saturday.

What I'm struggling with is how to fit the multiple places we want to see in- while still doing them all justice.

Here are the must sees:

1) Istanbul

2) cappadocia (I'm hoping for a hot air balloon ride on my actual birthday- May 13)

Here are the places we are deciding between:

1) Ephesus

2) pamukkale

3) hierapolis

4) antalya/fethiye (or anywhere comparable on the sea)

Like I mentioned above- Istanbul and Cappadocia are non-negotiable, but we love food, culture, history, and beaches- so we are struggling figuring out where else to go.

From what I've read we could certainly find enough to do to fill the 7 or 8 days in instanbul and cappadocia. But we are hoping to visit one or two of those other cities/sites.

We haven't gotten our flights yet, so we can still be somewhat flexible on days- but are hesitant to go past 8 days. We are planning on using domestic flights between Istanbul and cappadocia, and would be fine with a few additional flights- I'm just weary about spending too much of our little time there, flying/in transit.

Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you so much!
