My wife and I will be spending 5 1/2 days in Turkey in mid May. We plan to spend about 3 days in Istanbul and about 2 days in or near Selcuk seeing Ephesus and other sites in the area. We plan to arrive about 17:30 at Ataturk AP in Istanbul and can get a flight from Ataturk to Izmir the same day leaving Ist at 19:45 and arriving in Izmir at about 8:40. My question is: Can anyone recommend a good, not too expensive way to get to Selcuk at that time of night or should we plan to arrive at an earlier hour on a different day later in the week?
Also, can any one recommend a nice place to stay in Selcuk. Looking for something with charm, clean, good service, in room bathroom for less than $100 per night? Perhaps someone can recommend a pension/ bed and breakfast that would pick us up in Izmir?
