I will be traveling to Istanbul between July 30-Aug 8 with a small group of friends. We would like to spend the first 6 days traveling along the Aegean and Lycian coasts, and then we will fly back to Istanbul for the last 4 days.
Does anyone have a sample itinerary for the coastal travel? Further north, I would like to see Ephesus and Pamukkale. On the Lycian coast, however, I'm a bit lost! Because we are traveling during high tourism season, I'm hoping to find more scenic, budget-friendly towns with less crowds. Where should we go, and how long should we spend in each coastal town? Also, Is it possible to take buses between the towns, or should we rent a car?
Thanks!Edited: 11:53 am, March 14, 2013
