2 Weeks in Turkey: The Perfect Itinerary for a Luxury Trip

Are you planning a trip to Turkey? There are so many fascinating places to see in Turkey, and you may be feeling a little lost figuring out where to start.

If you only have 7 days to spare, don’t try to take in all of the country. It would take months to see all the main attractions and historical sites. Focus instead on Istanbul and Cappadocia.

Day 1 to 5 – Istanbul itinerary

Visit Topkapi Palace- A visit to the Topkapi Palace gives a glimpse into the lives of the sultans and concubines who lived here between the 15th and 19th centuries.

It’s like a hop-on, hop-off boat ride, allowing you to get off at various stops to see palaces and other sights, then jump back on the ferry again.

Take a Bosphorus cruise

Stroll Istiklal Avenue

Running from Taksim Square, the long cobblestone stretch of Istiklal Avenue is a major pedestrian-only shopping hub.

Check out the pretty Flower Passage

Built in 1876, the pretty glass-covered arcade, found along Istanbul’s famous Istiklal Avenue, is filled with rows of restaurants, historic cafes and bars.

Dolmabahce Palace

The largest palace in Turkey. You can’t help but ooh and aah when touring the palace, turned into a museum in 1984. In today’s dollars, more than $1.9 billion was spent on it.

Day 5 to 9 – Cappadocia itinerary

Hiking in Rose Valley- Through our Cappadocia cave hotel, we arranged for an all-day hiking tour with a private tour guide in the Rose Valley.
