Which itinerary would you pick?

Jump to last reply

More back-and-forth for our trip of 2 weeks in Oct…what would be a better itinerary for a first trip?
Option #1:
Land in Istanbul, fly to Izmir, transfer to Selcuk – 2 nights there
Rent car, drive to Pamukkale via Afrodisias – night in Pamukkale (or around)
Drive to Feithiye – 4 nights/3 full days there
Fly to Cappadocia – 4 night/3 full days there
Fly to Istanbul – 4 night/3 full days there

Option #2:
Land in Istanbul, fly to Dalaman, transfer to Feithiye – 3 nights/2 full days there
Drive to a 2nd base on the coast, maybe around Antalya – 3 nights/2 full days there
Fly to Cappadocia – 4 night/3 full days there
Fly to Istanbul – 4 night/3 full days there

I like #2 because it is more relaxed, but we would miss Ephesus and Aphrodisias – is there anything on the south coast that we can replace them with?
Also, option #2 would leave us an extra day, that we can add to any of the destinations. What do you think?
