Gallipoli (gelibolu) to Istanbul by ferry ?

Is this a feasible trip, is it worth doing in terms of saving driving time or do we miss some inland scenery ? Any thoughts

I don't think there are any ferries from Gelibolu to Istanbul. There is a road along the north of the Sea of Marmara. There are ferries from Bandirma to Istanbul - see www.ido.com.tr and www.tdi.com.tr. TDI runs the Gelibolu-Lapseki ferry which generally runs every hour.

Marko,

If you have time you may drive to Bursa stay 1 night there then drive to Istanbul via FERRY. Othervise you have to drive from Gallipoli to Istanbul via Tekirdag. If you want to go to Bursa you have to cross dardanelles again.

Have a nice trip in Turkey
