Where on the Aegean coast?

Jump to last reply

We are finally deciding on our Turkey itinerary, and I would love to have some input on where to go on one “empty” day on the Aegean coast. We (family of five) are travelling the first two weeks of May 2013:

Day 1 - Arrival at Istanbul Ataturk 16h35 – take subway to Sultanahmet area (does anyone advise against taking the subway?)

Day 2 - Istanbul

Day 3 – Istanbul

Day 4 - Onur Air Istanbul – Izmir, arrive midday, pick up rental car. This is where we would like to go to a town on the coast for one day, thinking maybe Cesme? Spend the night on the chosen location.

Day 5 - Spend the day in the coast town. In the afternoon/evening go to Selçuk

Day 6 - Ephesus ruins in the morning, Aphrodisias ruins in the afternoon, spend the night in Pamukkale (this is the tour proposed on Turkey Travel Planner)

Day 7 - Pamukkale in the morning, afternoon drive to airport in Izmir (4 hour drive), late flight with Sun Express Izmir – Kayseri. Shuttle to Goreme.

Day 8 – Cappadocia

Day 9 – Cappadocia

Day 10 - Cappadocia (ihlara valley)

Day 11 - Atlasjet Kayseri - Istanbul Ataturk (once again subway into town)

Day 12 – Istanbul

Day 13 - Flight home Istanbul Ataturk 6h30 (yes, very early flight, will need airport shuttle that takes 5 people)

Note that I have been playing around with different open-jaw alternatives, but for budget reasons we will have to fly in and out of Istanbul.

Thanks in advance for any comments
