Turkey in July Where to Start?

Jump to last reply

Hi All,
We intend to visit Turkey for about 10 days in July with our 16 and 19 year olds. We are healthy mid-50's. We will continue on to Santorini and then fly back to the states. We figure about 10 days in Turkey.

So where to start? Of course Istanbul. Then what? We love great sights - love the ocean and cliffs. We love staying in hotels with a view. We love anything different - cities, history. My husband has difficulty in the heat so we tend to do short visits to sun soaked ruins, but we do love it (I'm a teacher so there's no choice about when we travel).

We are open to renting a car, flying around (if not too costly), train, bus, or group tour (though we tend not to like that very much).

Any advice is appreciated.
Ellen
