My friend and I will arrive in Istanbul on Saturday, May 30 for a 4 night stay there.
Can you advise, please on how we might best spend the remainder of our trip? We fly back to the US on Saturday, June 13.
We would like to visit Cappadocia. Should we fly there? and how many days should be devoted to the area, and what towns should we visit?
We also want to visit Ephesus. How may days? Fly/drive/bus?
Also, Izmar and surrounding areas.
We like museums, shopping for ceramics, tiles, jewelry. Also like taking mid-day or afternoon breaks for a wine and to people watch. I may want a massage. We don't want to feel like we're on the go constantly, but don't want to miss the must-see sites that Turkey has to offer, either.
Thanks to all who offer suggestions. I've enjoyed all the helpful comments that have been shared by others. This is a wonderful site with so much information by those in the know.
