I know, the dreaded "authentic" label, but I'm basically just curious if anyone has a suggestion of a town/city that receives few foreigners and ideally might not even be in a guidebook! I have a few extra days in my preliminary itinerary so I'm hoping to find something intriguing.
Some background: Beginning of this July, traveling with my boyfriend on public transportation on a fairly limited budget, but we don't mind roughing it at all!
Ideally, it would be somewhat accessible along this route below, but suggestions to my itinerary as of now would also be very appreciated. Not too set on much-I'd really just like to get some sense of Turkey! Not so sure about Bozcaada, but thought an island might be fun and somewhat different. Thank you so much!
Day 2-4, Istanbul
Day 5-Canakkale (Troy)
Day 6-7, Bozcaada
Day 8-9, Assos
Day 11, Selcuk
Day 13-Some combo of Priene, Miletus, DidymaEdited: 10 April 2011, 04:23
