Turkey Itinerary - 3 Weeks

Jump to last reply

Last winter we booked reward tickets for a 3 week trip to Turkey this October ... unfortunately life then got in the way, and I have not had a chance to do any planning whatsoever until now! We want to spend time in Istanbul, Cappadocia, and on the Turquoise Coast, and want to make a short stop in Selcuk in order to see Ephesus. We will have 20 nights total in Turkey. I now am in the process of trying to sort out my itinerary and would appreciate any feedback / suggestions / advice:

- 3 nights Istanbul (the first day is a write off since our flight doesn't arrive in Istanbul until early evening)

- fly to Kayseri or Nevsehir; 5 nights Cappadocia (will probably stay in Urgup)

- fly direct from Kayseri to Izmir; pick up rental car at airport; 2 nights Selcuk in order to visit Ephesus

- 7 nights total along the Turquoise Coast - trying to figure out how to break this up - 3 or 4 nights in Kas or Fethiye, and the other 3 or 4 in Cirali? Suggestions?

- fly from Antalya back to Istanbul; 3 more nights in Istanbul before departing Istanbul in the early evening on the last day to head home (with an overnight in Geneva on the way, oh the joys of annoyingly lengthy routings that one often gets stuck with when booking reward tickets!)

I had originally been planning to do 6 nights in Istanbul up front. This would have been my preference (we don't like switching hotels as much as we will be doing on this trip), but doing the 6 nights in Istanbul all together meant that on the day we would have been due to fly from Kayseri to Izmir, I was unable to find any direct flights on either SunExpress or Pegasus. So, I reworked the itinerary by breaking up the nights in Istanbul, so that we would be flying from Kayseri to Izmir on a date when Pegasus flies direct. I haven't yet booked any internal Turkey flights, just checked availability, so I can rework the itinerary if it would make more sense to structure it in some other way.

Thanks in advance for any feedback!
