Hello. Hoping for a kind someone to untangle these travel plans. We are two graduate students flying into Istanbul (IST) on Wednesday, March 11. We want to spend one day in Ephesus and two days in Thessaloniki. (Yes, short, but we have to be back in Istanbul by Sunday, March 15th).
Does anyone know the best way to do this? Should we fly back and forth to Ephesus-Istanbul in one day? It looks like Pegasus air flies this route inexpensively. And then do the Istan/Thessa trip via train/bus? Or is it faster/easier to go from the Ephesus area to Thessaloniki and return to Istanbul?
Costs are a consideration.
All suggestions gratefully accepted! Thank you.
