Suggestions on 13-Day Turkey Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I was hoping those of you who have traveled to Turkey before could give me some advice on the itinerary I've come up with for an upcoming 13-day trip. My husband and I both enjoy cities and natural landscapes (we spend a lot of time outdoors hiking, backpacking, etc.) and I really enjoy the beach, so that needs to be in there somewhere. Where we diverge is that I don't mind taking vacations where I am constantly on the move, whereas he would prefer a more leisurely pace, where there is time to just sit in cafes and read, rather than constant sightseeing; and he does not enjoy frequent location changes. Considering that, one specific item I am debating is whether to skip Ephesus (we have both seen ruins in other places before) and spend an additional day in Istanbul or Antalya instead, perhaps to walk a portion of the Lycian way.

Thanks for your help!! Any comments/advice about specific to-dos also really appreciated!!

Day 1: Arrive Istanbul. Depart for Cappadocia, arriving very late.
Day 2: Cappadocia
Day 3: Cappadocia
Day 4: Cappadocia... midnight flight to Antalya.
Day 5: Antalya
Day 6: Antalya
Day 7: Antalya - Izmir, late flight
Day 8: Izmir - Istanbul, late flight
Day 9: Istanbul
Day 10: Istanbul
Day 11: Istanbul
Day 12: Istanbul
Day 13: depart
