we arrive in Ist on Fri, Dec 26. The first 3 days we will be in Istanbul. Then our former exchange student's family wants to take us to tour around the country, visiting Ephesus and ultimately flying home on Jan 4 from Antalya. We may also visit their hometown of Isparta.
My student just told me she thought we would fly from Istanbul to Antalya because the drive is so long. I think that will be expensive with last minute tickets near the New Year holiday, plus there will be 7 or 8 of us travelling. I think that renting a large van might be best.
What do you all think? How is drive around the coast from Ist to Antalya? Is there a lot to see?
How easy is it to rent large vans? What about train travel?
thanks for any other travel tips you would like to share
