I'm nearing the end of my trip and have been making plans as I go. My last two countries I will be visiting are Turkey and Cyprus.

Starting in Istanbul, I want to travel south along the Mediterranean Sea, ferry to Cyprus and back, travel north up to Cappadocia, circle back towards Istanbul traveling along the Black Sea.

I will be starting this trip in late June and traveling for about 4 weeks.

What reccomendations do you all have for this itineary?

Here are the cities i want to visit so far:

Istanbul (start/finish)
Gallopoli and Troy battlefields

pretty nice plan. but 4 weeks is not short so her are my reccommendations near by. if you like you can add some of them to your list.

blacksea : safranbolu, trabzon, rize

mediterranean : fethiye, gokova, bodrum, cesme, kalkan, kas, the valley of butterflies, letoonia

Gallopoli and Troy battlefields : altionluk and kucukkuyu are about 1 hour away from the war monuments. you can go there and spend a few days because those places have the worlds top oxygen ratio in air.

at the moment there is a great compettiton among local airlines so you can fly to cappadocia and blacksea if you like.

you can ask me anything you like about turkey. have a nice and safe trip.

Plenty of travel agents in Turkey, also do tours and they are quite cheap. A handy way of seeing the sights and sites.
