Planning October trip

Post by sally » Fri Jun 06, 2014 9:39 am

We have bought tickets to fly with Pegasus from Stansted to Izmir on September 28 for 13 days. We will hire a car from Cizgi. Our proposed itinerary is as follows:

Day 2. Priene and Miletus

Day 4. Afrodysias

Day 6. Kibyra

Days 8 and 9. Kaunos, thermal baths on lake etc

Days 10 and 11 Mugla

Day 12. Ephesus

Any suggestions for Hittites or Hans en route would be welcome as would ideas for inexpensive hotels. We are hoping to linger and sketch along the way.

Not much Hittite stuff in that region - - I must return to Lake Bafa for the inscriptions there, my guide couldn't find them last time (we had a good wander around, though - maybe it's at this rock here, or here, etc).
And I think the westernmost Seljuk han is Akhan just east of Denizli.

I would leave Priene and Miletus until later, on the road from Muğla to Selçuk.
