I'm planning a trip around Turkey in July.
I'm still contemplating different options for my itinerary and I'm now focusing my attention on 2 key factors: weather and accessibility. Consider I'm going to travel by bus, I'll be there for around 23 days, I'm arriving in Istanbul and leaving from Ankara.
I've already decided I'm not going to miss a) Cappadocia (3-6 days), b) Pamukkale and around (2-3 days), c) Ephesus and around (3-4 days), d) part of the Lycian coast (Fethiye to Demre) (7 days)
Weather could be extremely hot, accessibility can be difficult, but I'm not going to miss those gems for such reasons.
I'm going to consider those factors instead for the other destinations I'm contemplating: a) Southeast: Gaziantep, Sanliurfa, Gobekli Tepe, Nemrut Dag (plus security), b) Western Anatolia (Bursa, Eskisehir, Phrygian Valley, Aizanoi) c) Northern Aegean Coast (Canakkale, Bozcaada, Assos)
How is the weather there normally? I checked many sites but the opinions are very different.
Can i have your opinion on those 2 itineraries, telling me if there is any difficulties with transportation?
Istanbul-(night bus to)Canakkale- 3 days around Bozcaada and Assos - (moving to ) Selcuk - 3 days around Ephesus and main sights of the area - (moving to) Pamukkale - 2/3 days around main sights of the area - (moving to) Fethiye - 7 days around the Lycian Coast - (moving to) Goreme Valley - 5/6 days around Cappadocia - Ankara
Is the Assos to Selcuk trip complicated? What about Pamukkale to Fethiye and Fethiye to Goreme?
Istanbul-Bursa/Eskisehir and around (3/4 days)-Pamukkale (2/3 days)-Selcuk (3 days)- Fethiye (7 days)- Goreme (3 days) plus a 3 days tour around Southeast Turkey (Back to Goreme) - Ankara
Is the Selcuk to Fethiye trip complicated?
