My wife and I are planning a two week tour of Western Turkey next week, starting and ending in Istanbul. Does anyone have any suggestions of routes? We're hoping to stay off the beaten track, but also not do much camping (home-stays or hotels).
Starting in Istanbul, we're thinking of going from Bandirma to Canakkale, and then down to Bozcada Island, and Assos, and finally to Ayvalik and Bergama, before taking the bus back to Istanbul. What do you think of this general route? Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance!
