Re: Driving to Turkey 2018

Personally I'm thinking I'd rather go via Italy then across to Iguomenista and back up via Istanbul and my intended destination will be the Side area (we have a house near Manavgat)
I'm thinking this route may be the 'safer' route and maybe better roads plus the break from driving on the ferry and we plan to go around mid May.
I have a few questions though I'm hoping someone can answer, here goes -
Best route to Italy from Calais?
Any Tolls or Taxes between Calais and perhaps Ancona?
Should we get the ferry from Ancona or Brindisi?
Where is best to book that ferry, there are many online options?
How does this route compare with Hungary/Serbia/Bulgaria etc price wise (Tolls/Taxes etc)
All suggestions gratefully received
Thanks, Martin
Buy your ticket at the port lots of agents and the tickets are usually half the price. The ferries are never full. We always used Superfast best price and they get there 5 min before the others!!
