Number of days in Istanbul

Jump to last reply

So now that you've helped me convince my husband that we'll be fine... Onward with the planning. So from Chicago, the direct flight to Istanbul lands at 5:00 in the evening. That means I'm counting the first full day as our first day. Is four days a good amount of time to see the highlights, take the Bosporous boat ride and do the markets?

The next place I want to spend a few days is Cappadocia. I'm thinking that we should fly to Ankara and pick up our car there. Should we spend the night there before heading out or can we make the plane ride and drive in one day without it being a really long day? Also, is that the best way to get to Cappadocia? We do want to have a car and drive along the coast and a few other stops. We'll drop it off at Izmir and fly back to Istanbul and then home.

All help with itinerary is appreciated!!
