I'm considering taking a cruise of the meditteranean this may, and was wondering if anyone has experience traveling in either of these regions. I'm leaning towards the tour of turkey, however we have some conerns about terrorism and the looming threat of war in the middle east. Despite this, turkey just seems more exotic and appealing, plus I've never been to asia so I wouldn't mind setting foot on the world's largest continent. Does anyone think I would be better off seeing spain and portugal instead?
The options are:
3-4 days in Rome, then cruise to:
Monte Carlo, Monaco
3-4 days in Lisbon, Portugal
3-4 Days in Rome, then cruise to:
Istanbul, Turkey, and 5 days touring turkey, From Istanbul to Ankara
