The first question is where to start our journey, Turkey is a very large country so it is better to choose immediately if we want to start from west to east or vice versa. This is my 10 days Turkey itinerary.
10 DAYS TURKEY ITINERARY
Turkey is an easily accessible country, a bridge between Europe and Asia, receiving millions of tourists each year. Although in recent years the number has fallen due to the proximity to Syria and being the subject of terrorist attacks, however, I would recommend adding it to your wishlist, personally, it was the best trip of my life. Continuing to read “how to organize your trip”.

3 DAYS IN ISTANBUL
The city of Istanbul was my first stop on one of the most beautiful journeys of my life, once finished, we will begin our journey to the center of Turkey ending with almost 1500 km. Here you can find the summery day per day, I really enjoyed this city, I suggest you spend a minimum of 3 days in this beautiful city.
DAY 4 KUSADASI
Izmir is one of the main airports in southern Turkey, connecting Istanbul to the west coast of the country. Flights can cost from € 50 to € 75 in high season. I recommend you rent your car there.
Leaving for Kusadasi, 100km from Izmir, if your navigator isn’t working you will find signs indicating the direction. Driving in Turkey is not very different from Europe, just be careful about pedestrians and animals that cross the streets. Continue to read…

DAY 7 GUZELYURT
Guzelyurt is located 560km from Pamukkale, I came here by chance, booking a hotel on booking.com (use the widget at your right). The Cappadocia Mayaoglu hotel, apart from a delicious breakfast, offers the possibility to dine in a cave a typical menu, a good point because the area does not offer much gastronomy.
3 DAYS CAPPADOCIA
Finally, we arrived at our last stop, Cappadocia is a journey that I always dreamed of, it was my parents’ honeymoon and I always knew that how can be very romantic. Cappadocia was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. Continue to read…
