Icmeler to Izmir

Can somebody please tell me how long this journey is by car? Google saying 3 hours but a lady has posted on one of the topics it took 6 hours each way! We need to visit in August to get our papers sorted and I really don't fancy a 12 hour round trip.

I done the same as yourself a few years back and found out that Izmir was closer in miles than Antalya where I actually got my papers translated, I was told that Izmir was 5 hours and Antalya was 6, Antalya was actually 5 hours, I have a friend whom works in Icmeler every season whom comes from Izmir and I will ask him in June actually how long it takes and let you know then Ok?

Google says 4+ hours for me, which is probably about right. It's got to be about 2hrs 30mins to Aydin where you get on the motorway.

Icmeler to Izmir, depending on how you travel, By Public Transport or by car takes about 5 hours by bus and around 4 hours by car.

There is a lot of confusion over where to go for your documentation when marrying in Turkey and it all depends where you are staying. If in the Marmaris area then it is Izmir you should travel to and certainly not Antalya, which is much further away.

If you travel by public transport you probably will be taking the Istanbul bus. When you arrive at Izmir Bus Station you will then require taxis to the British Consulate and Turkish Authorities. Therefore it is much easier to go by private car/minibus.

Hope this has helped!.

Thanks for all your replies they're very helpful. Looks like we'll have to bite the bullet and buy a good book for the journey!
