More importantly, I'm trying to figure out where to stay. I don't want to be rushed. The only reason to stay in a hotel for one night only is if it will be a base - but mostly I like to settle in for 3 nights and do day trips.
How many days do you think each town warrants or is there a different suggestion? Here's an itinerary from our travel agent, but I don't like it. I think we should probably skip Bodrum and stay more days elsewhere - maybe less in Kusadasi. What do we like to do? We like to drive into towns and have lunch and do some shopping. We like to drive the coast and see the view. We like time at the hotel by a pool to relax. We're not beach people though we love looking at it!
Any suggestions would be very welcome. I'd be grateful.
