Overview of your Mersin tour:

A tour that promise you both natural and historical site seeing by the sea around Antioch. Seleucia Pieria, known in English as Seleucia by the Sea, was the capital of Seleucus I Nicator, in Syria. The city was built nearby the river Orontes between a range of mountains, for that reason it was called as Pieria, as in their homeland city "the Olympus" also between the sea and a mountain range. As the city was under the threat of the floods descended from the mountains, the Roman emperor, Vespasianus ordered to build a tunnel to divert the floodwaters threatening the city and its harbour. Today, Seleucia Pierra is located near the mediterranean village of Çevlik, Turkey. When you get the town, you will see the history and natural beauties (ancient ruins, daphne and olive trees and the gentle winds of mediterranean Sea) side by side. An unforgettable tour by short walking through nature with Mediterranean wonderful view.
