Trabzon, Samsun and Rize This Week

Jump to last reply

Hello all,
I'm in Ankara at present. I have a few days to explore and am wondering if its worthwhile visiting Trabzon and/or Samsun and/or Rize in the next few days.

I've been told that these are great places to visit however my concerns are as follows:
1. Weather - as of now the forecast for Trabzon is sunny but chilly on Wed, Thur, Fri. I prefer sunshine because I can get great photos. The cold I can deal with. Clouds and/or rain would be a deal-breaker. Haven't checked the weather for the other places yet.
2. Being off season, would the local transportation be limited or non-existent - for example if I wanted to visit Sumela Monastery, would it be difficult to get there by public transportation?

I'm thinking of getting there by bus - maybe an overnight one considering the travel time.

I am traveling solo and a budget traveler as well. Photography is my main interest.

I would appreciate any comments, suggestions, recommendations etc.
Thank you all in advance.
