I have been exclusively using the search feature for the past few months as we plan our trip to Istanbul in two weeks time, but I just cannot find an answer to this one.
We are in Istanbul from the US from Nov 11th - 18th and want to take a day trip over to Izmir/Ephesus. From the previous postings here, I am using aerobillet to find schedules and prices, but I am wondering what a good departure/return time would be and perhaps even the best day of the week?
At first I thought Monday would be good (given museum closures in IST), but that is our first full day there and I would like to take the time to get acclimated. If we get the museum pass on Tuesday in IST, we could go to Ephesus on Thursday so we can use within the 72 hour period?
