Mid-April 2012: WHERE to spend 3-4 days w/ car after Selcuk/Ephesus area?

Jump to last reply

After 5 nights in Istanbul, we fly to Izmir and pick up a rental car for a week, with drop-off at Izmir airport.

We arrive in Izmir around noon on Tuesday, April 17. We depart from Izmir at 1 PM on Tuesday April 24 -- destination Istanbul, then a connecting flight to Amsterdam .

We have a booking for 4 nights at Hotel Bella in Selcuk. We can amend or cancel that reservation until a few days prior to our scheduled arrival date.

While at the Hotel Bella, we will probably divide our time as follows: Selcuk, Sirince (Day 1) Ephesus (Day 2) Pamukkale, Hierapolis, Laodicea (Day 3) Didym, Prienne, Miletus (Day 4)

(I'm thinking 3 nights may be enough, to liberate more time for areas further to the south. Perhaps we could visit Didym etc while en route to our next hotel)

I'm hoping to get advice on where we should spend our time after Selcuk.

All the accounts I've read about the Antalya region make it sound delightful -- but all the accounts seem to be from warm-weather months.

I realize it is not really beach weather but I do like the sea. Even temperatures of 16-18 C (normal April temperature = 20-21 C) would be satisfactory, it there's sun.

I'd like to see some historic sites. I like just relaxing on a hotel terrace or over a nice lunch. I like to walk. One constraint is my spouse's heart condition: vigourous hikes and hill-climbing are not entirely practicable, unless I do them alone.

If we had 4 nights (perhaps 2 + 2 or 3 +1) to allocate, where should we base ourselves? Antalya/ Cirali? Fethiye? Kas?

(For the night of April 23, we would have to be somewhere within 2-3 hours' drive of Izmir airport)

Or is this simlpy the WRONG season to take a trip along the coast? If so, can someone suggest a completely different strategy? We're open to all suggestions. Thanks.
