Turkey - 10 Days - 2 or 3 destinations?

Jump to last reply

We are three long time friends trying to navigate through the itinerary planning of a ten night stay in Turkey. Two of us like to take our time and the third has a whirlwind approach to travel.

We had pretty much determined that we would go to Istanbul, Cappadocia, and either Cirali or Sirince/Ephesus. However, studying the travel time between Cappadocia and Cirali or Sirince has us realizing that it will involve a valuable day of travel.Disheartening. Whirlwind still would like three destinations. The two slower travelers do not want to spend so much time getting from place to place.

Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? Right now we have agreed, I think, on four nights in Cappadocia. Other than that, we are in painful limbo. We are considering day trips or an overnight stay from Istanbul, but it is hard to get excited about this when you have been considering Sirince and Cirali.

We arrive at 4 pm on September 19th in Istanbul and leave at 2 pm on the 29th of September. Unfortunately, none of us expect to have the luxury of a return visit, making the decision more difficult.

Please help us! We need encouragement. We know that whatever we end up doing, it will be great. We just can't decide what to do!

Thank you!!
