Turkey Driving Itinerary in 8/9 Days?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are just starting to plan our fall trip. Due to some other commitments, it's going to be later than usual (late-Oct/early-Nov). We're considering Turkey at the moment.

We're likely going to fly out on a Saturday (arrive Sunday AM) and fly back mid-day on the following Monday, so we'll have 8 nights (7 full days, 2 1/2 days).

My initial plan would be to rent a car (we like to drive and explore along the way) in Istanbul and drive to Ankara for a couple of nights. Then on to Cappadocia for a few nights. Then back towards Istanbul, stopping somewhere (WHERE?) for a couple more nights, then back to Istanbul.

We're seasoned travellers and big on the outdoors (love to hike and explore).

Does this sound reasonable? Any other ideas?
