What´sthe best time for a trip to Turkey?

Spring andsummer is the best time to visit Turkey. Then autumn, and lastly winter.

Spring

Spring(March through mid-June) is prime because the weatheris moderate throughout the country and the days are long.(April can be rainy) This is highseason for Istanbul and Cappadocia, with many boutiquehotels fully booked, and prices at their highest. However,it´sthe off-season for Aegean and Mediterranean beach resorts.

Autumn

Autumn(mid-September through October) is secondbest with mostly mild weather, but the days are shorter, andrain may begin again in October. This, too, is highseason for Istanbul and Cappadocia, with many boutiquehotels heavily booked at their highest prices.At beach resorts, the water is still warm, crowds are smaller, andprices lower.

Summer

Summer (mid-June through mid-September) is hot in five ofTurkey´s seven distinct climatic regions, though usually rainless, andcool inland in the evenings. Seaside resorts are crowded and pricesare at their peak, but the cities are less crowded—Istanbul is a bargain,with smaller crowds and shorter lines for admission to sights. Cappadocia ischeaper and more comfortable as well.

Winter

Winter(November, through February) can be chilly and rainy, with occasionalcold but sunny days, everywhere except the southeast, which remainstemperate, but lower prices and fewer tourists arecompensations. I often travel to Turkeyin March and November to benefit from the lower prices,better availability of hotel rooms, and smaller crowds.
