Silifke

Silifke ©
Silifke is a town and district in south-central Mersin Province, Turkey, 80km west of the city of Mersin, on the west end of Çukurova.Silifke is near the Mediterranean coast, on the banks of the Göksu River, which flows from the nearby Taurus Mountains, surrounded by attractive countryside along the river banks.EtymologySilifke was formerly called Seleucia on the Calycadnus — variously cited over the centuries as Seleucia Cilicia, Seleucia Isauria, Seleucia Trachea, and Seleucia Tracheotis —. Venture out of the city with trips to Mersin (Mersin Forum, Mersin Marina, &more). There's lots more to do: take in the waterfront at Narlikuyu, explore the ancient world of Adamkayalar, stroll the grounds of Imbriogion, and steep yourself in history at Kiz Castle.

Bozyazi

Bozyazi ©
Bozyazı is a town and district of Mersin Province on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, 220km west of the city of Mersin.GeographyBozyazı is a remote coastal district with the Taurus Mountains as a backdrop; The roads over the mountains or along the coast from either direction are very difficult to drive making Bozyazı too far from large cities or the established centres of tourism to attract many visitors, so the district is quiet and unspoilt. Kick off your visit on the 5th (Sat): explore the activities along Soguksu, then explore the fascinating underground world of Mirror Lake - Gilindir Cave, and then steep yourself in history at Softa Kalesi. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in the spiritual surroundings of Eyup Sultan Camisi, explore the ancient world of Anemurium, and then step into the grandiose world of Mamure Kalesi.

For where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Bozyazi trip website.

You can drive from Silifke to Bozyazi in 2.5 hours. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Tarsus.
