this will be our 5th trip to your country and we are people,people
both over 80,but fit. We would like to travel from Istanbul to Ankara,then onto goreme,and then to Izmir/kusadasi. is this possible and how
Welcome to Turkey again. Goreme is not railway connected, but you can go very close by train. See below link “How to get to Cappadocia by train” for step by step directions from Istanbul.
Back to Kusadasi needs again many interchanges, but surely a fun for fit people. The same link includes directions from Izmir. Kusadasi is not rail connected, but only 25 km from Selçuk train station. From Izmir, Denizli/Nazilli trains (see below) or suburban trains will take you to Selcuk. There you can take a bus to Kusadasi (see location of main bus station at below link of Selcuk station).
