road travel

I am going to be traveling by car from Bodrum to Istanbul, late August. Can anyone tell me of a suitable place to stopover half way or two thirds of the way.

Actually can anyone suggest the most direct route, or perhaps a source to research routes.

Thank you

Hi Vicki,

http://www.kgm.gov.tr/indexe.htm is the official site of the general directorate of highways. You can find detailed maps.

I don't know the route but I recommend Bursa for stopping over. Nearly all roads pass from Bursa near or far. It's the first capital city of the Ottoman Empire. There are lots of historical buildings. Also it's a nice place to shop and eat.

Best...
