1. Re: Ten Day Itinerary??

Hi,İ remember you!Glad we've convinced you to spend some time in Turkey ha ha.

Spend the first five days in İstanbul and then take an internal flight down to İzmir and visit Ephesus.Allow 2 days to be able to see the ruins and the other nearby attractions such as the museum at Selcuk.

From there take another internal flight to Capadocia and allow 3 days there.You have a choice of Nevşehir which is very close or Kayseri which is an hour away but sometimes offers better flight times and/or prices.You can then get a return flight to İstanbul from the same airports.

İ know it seems like a lot of flying but it is hardly more expensive than the buses and would make the best use of your time.İ doubt you will want to spend 8 hours on a bus from İstanbul to İzmir or 17 hours from İzmir to Nevşehir in the Capadocia region!The fights will take 50 minutes and just over an hour respectively-big difference!

İ haven't recommended any coastal stops because at the end of March the weather will still be too chilly for beach days and the water will be freezing.

Your five days in İstanbul can be filled without even trying so don't worry about being bored there(lol).

sarikanarya..but dont forget that the coastal areas offer much more than just beaches..this is also a great time to explore the extensive historical area without excessive heat...I love the spring time for the natural blooming flowers, green fields, and less crowded area...however many places I recommend over the Lycian are never overcrowded like the major historical hot spots in Turkey..

As for the amount of days it is up to you. One can easily spend 10 days just exploring the Antalya coastal areas ( Lycian coastline ) with the vast amount of historical and rural villages with lovely beaches..The entire coastline of Antalya ranging from the city of Antalya to Fethiye is a wonderful way to spend a vacation. And some with spendid beaches and historical areas. Here are some great places to visit south west from Antalya - Phaselis, Cirali ( my village ), Myra, Kekova, Kas, Kalkan, Xanthos, Patara, Telmessos, Fethiye, Oludeniz, and Kayakoy.

A couple of places along the way from Antalya I recommend are Cirali, Kas, Ucagiz ( Kalekoy ), Patara and Kaya koyu near Fethiye.

I like many others enjoy looking at photos of different places to visit..have a look at my sets of photos from different places in Turkey..

you cant see all the sights in a short trip so maybe you might re-vist other places another time.

You're right Canmom,İ didn't mean that the way it sounded sorry!But how can you choose just one or two places when you've only got ten days in a country.İ know you can flip a coin but it only has two sides-pity!A couple of days in the Lycian way region would hardly do justice to it-bit like someone wanting to go to Capadocia for one night.

When will they introduce a 6 week month???

İ think those three places in ten days is just right,don't try to pack any more into your time.

For good internal flights try;-

Turkish Airlines(THY),Pegasus,Atlasjet,Onurair,Sun Express.

There are some good bargains around on flights at the moment so good luck!

THY is the most expensive one. I have a small suggestion to add, when you visit Cappadocia, try to stay in a "cave hotel" I am sure this will be something different. And You can also try Hot-Air Balooning during sun rise in cappadocia. Nice experiance though...
