Turkey in 9 days - May 2011

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are traveling to Turkey for the first time (from San Francisco) in early May . We will be there for 9 full days and want to see Istanbul, Ephesus, and Cappadocia. We don't want to be rushed but want to see the main highlights of Turkey.

Here is one idea for our itinerary:

May 5 - arrive IST at 10am, fly direct to Izmir, night in Selcuk
May 6 - explore Ephesus & rest of area, night in Selcuk (or night flight from Izmir to Kayseri?)
May 7 - early morning flight from Izmir to Kayseri (if we don't fly in the night before), explore Cappadocia, hotel in Goreme
May 8 - hot air ballon, explore Capadoccia, hotel in Goreme
May 9 - explore Cappadocia, evening flight from Kayseri to Istanbul, hotel in Istanbul (or spend another night in Goreme)
May 10 - early morning flight from Kayseri to Istanbul (if we don't fly in the night before) explore Istanbul
May 11 - Istanbul
May 12 - Istanbul
May 13 - Istanbul
May 14 - leave Istanbul at 12:15pm

Here are my main questions:
-Does this sound doable? Is this a good order for visiting these different cities/towns or is there a better way to do it that's more efficient?
-Are we spending too many nights in Cappadocia or Istanbul and/or not enough time in Ephesus?
-Is there a fourth must-see location we should try to squeeze in to this trip?

Any and all feedback is welcome...thanks in advance!
