Turkey trip, sanity check please

Jump to last reply

I got a lot of help from this forum, lots of questioned answered, lots of ideas - thanks. Now I need a final review and a sanity check for our Turkey trip in early October.

Day 1 - arrive in Istanbul around noon. Get to our hotel, have lunch, relax a little and hopefully take a Bosphorus Turyol ferry - 1.5 hrs. Need to get the Istanbul Card and stay up until around 8pm.

Day 2, Sun - Istanbul - Topkapi, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern
Day 3, Mon - Istanbul - Grand Bazaar, Spice Market, Yeni Cami, Suleymaniye Mosque, Rustem Pasa
Day 4, Tue - Istanbul - Chora Church, Dolmabahce Palace and Mosque, Galata Tower

I am concerned about day 1 - we’ll be jetlagged, but Topkapi Palace is closed on on Tue - should we try to move it on Mon, and see maybe the Spice Market on Mon?

Day 5 - early flight to Izmir - see Ephesus, sleep in Selcuk

Day 6 - early flight to Cappadocia, get there around 8:30 am, so maybe 10 am in Goreme. Relax a little, visit Goreme Open Air Museum, hike Pigeon Valley, Love Valley, visit Uchisar

Day 7 - Cappadocia - visit Zelve Open Air Museum, hike Pasabag, Cavusin village, Red and Rose valleys

Day 8 - Cappadocuia - Devrent Valley, and anything that we did not have time for on days 6 and 7

Day 9 - Cappadocia - Green tour with New Goreme Tour (Ilhara valley, Derinkuyu underground city, Selime monastery

Day 10 - fly to Dalaman (via Istanbul), pick up rental car, drive to Kas (with a detour to Dalyan if we feel like it)

Day 11 - Kas - drive loop Saklikent Gorge, Tlos, Pinara

Day 12 - Kas - drive loop Xantos, Letoon, Patara

Day 13 - Kas - boat to Kekova

Day 14 - leave Kas, visit Myra, Demre, Limyra, sleep in Cirali

Day 15 - Cirali - visit Olympos, Phaeselis

Day 16 - fly home out of Antalya

I know the Istanbul days are busy, and I don't know how to shift things around (or what to eliminate) to change that. I guess we'll just have to take it slower in the 2nd part of the trip. Is that better? Any thoughts on the above plan? Thanks
