TURKEY + ? in 20 days

Jump to last reply

Hi! My husband and me are in our early 50's and we both love to travel, trying to live out the mantra of visiting 1 new country every year. ��

We are new here in Fodor's Forum and being aware of the credibility of this site, we would appreciate any travel advice from its members. ��.

We have around 20 days to spare for this vacation we plan in September 2015. Turkey is tops in our priority but we would also love to include one more place in our itinerary if it would be worth visiting. We initially looked at flying straight to Athens, Greece from our country and fly out of Istanbul, Turkey on our way back home to our country. However, we've decided that we will skip Greece this time as we are not very comfortable with the economic problems it is facing which may cause unnecessary stress and inconveniences at any given time, for tourists like us.

Can anyone please comment if adding another country to our Turkey visit would be practical for our 20-day trip, which may actually just sum up to 16 - 17 days, net of our flight-in/flight-out days. In Turkey, we intend to fly to Antalya and stay there for a few days before proceeding to Cappadoccia. After a few days (3-4 days) in Cappadoccia, we then head to Istanbul for a few days (5 days perhaps) before we head back home.

Would 16-17 days be too much for this Turkey leg that this should warrant a visit to another country first? If so, where do you suggest we should go? We could fly straight to Venice from our country as we have always skipped that part of Italy on our past travels and stay there for 2 nights then fly to Istanbul thereafter but this is way too far fetched, don't you think? ��

Looking forward to getting your inputs/travel advice.

Thank you very much
