Selcuk base and driving to antalya

We are in turkey for 2 weeks. Flying from Kayseri to izmir on a Wednesday morning in May. Planning to get train from airport 1145am to selcuk arrive about 130pm. Afternoon look at town.

Thursday morning to Ephesus ruins. Afternoon perhaps up to sirence for dinner.

What does forum recommend next?

We were thinking of hire a car on Friday morning and go to pammukale then stay there overnight.

Drive down to fethiye / kas on Saturday. Stay kas.

Drive kas to cirali on Sunday. Stay cirali.

Then cirali to antalya on Monday for later afternoon flight to Istanbul for final 5 days of holiday.

Sensible plan. Thanks

hi mattravel29,

you can also do the trip in the reverse which might work out better..fly from Nevsehir airport to Antalya airport..visit Cirali , Kas, Fethiye, Pamukkale and then arrive in Selcuk..after Selcuk drop the car at the Izmir airport and then fly to Istanbul..

the only disadvantage with hiring a car is the expensive gas in Turkey..other than that it is a easy drive

canmom has already given an excellent and comprehensive reply to your post, and the only thing I would add is that, if your time-scale permits, it would be worth exploring more of the lovely town of Selçuk A few suggestions:

Mary’s House (Meryemana) which many believe the place where the Virgin Mary spent her last days. This peaceful site is sacred to both Christians and Muslims.

İsa Bey Mosque, built in the late fourteenth-century, and ancient baths;

Ayasoluk Hill and the Basilica of St. John – the final resting place of the Evangelist.

The Temple of Artemis (Artemision), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Scant remains now but stunning panorama across Selçuk, with views of Ayasoluk Hill, the Basilica, İsa Bey Mosque and a glimpse of the ancient İsa Bey Baths built in 1364 just in front of the Mosque. A wonderful photo opportunity!

There’s also the Cave of the Seven Sleepers. In 250 AD, seven Christian youths fled the city to avoid persecution and took refuge in the cave. According to a touching legend they slept for 200 years and on awaking realised Christianity was now the main religion. When they died they were buried in the cave and a commemorative church built over their graves.

Enjoy you travels!
