Early June (first) trip to Turkey

Jump to last reply

I’ve been reading posts on Turkey for several months and now my trip is a “go” so I would love to get advice for this upcoming (first) trip in early June. DH and I are mid-60s, we like very nice (but smaller) hotels (not Four Seasons prices however), beautiful scenery, charming villages, good food. We like to walk but are not hikers. We are looking forward to Istanbul and Cappadocia and perhaps one other area if we can fit it in 9-10 days. We normally don’t stay at a hotel for less than 3 nights, we both prefer a more leisurely travel style. I would appreciate comments on this rough itinerary and suggestions you might have for hotels and guides (maybe for one day in Istanbul).
Day 1: arrive 11:30pm in IST
Days 2-4: Istanbul, stay in Sultanahmet area. Visit tourist sights in old city area
Days 5-7: Fly to Cappadocia
Days: 8-9: Back to Istanbul, stay on Asia side on the water. Bosphorus cruise
Day 10: Fly to Tel-Aviv
Does it make sense to spend 5 full days in Istanbul and give up a couple of days on the Mediterranean or Aegean Coast? But if travel is not too difficult from Cappadocia, I could see giving up a day in Istanbul. We like the natural beauty of the coastline but not lounging at the beach. I visited Ephesus many years ago, that’s why it isn’t included in the itinerary.
