Now the cruise itinerary has changed and not to go to Syria due to the situation there. They move to some places in Turkey. Please advise any visit on my own doable at Mersin and Iskenderun in Turkey.
There is an old crusader castle not too far from Mersin.
Cant remember the name right now, but i will get back to you once i get the name of it.
And i can´t recall any big sights in Iskenderun, but it´s a very pleasant seaside town and really nice to stroll around.
you can think about IRAN. It's easy. Come here to enjoy.
It's cheap an safe.
I may go out for a walk around Mersin and Iskederun. For Antalya I have booked already the shore excursion for full day to Perge and Aspendos. Really regret unable to visit Syria.
