Canakkale: Full-Day Troy and Gallipoli Tour

1. Canakkale: Full-Day Troy and Gallipoli Tour

Your tour begins at the door of your hotel in Canakkale, where you will be met by your driver to take a 30-minute drive to Troy. There you will be met by your tour guide who will explain the mythology surrounding Troy, as well as the history and discoveries of the archaeological excavations. You'll learn the city in detail, from its discovery by Heinrich Schliemann in the 1870s through to the present day. You will not only see the still-impressive defensive walls of the ancient city and learn the story of the Trojan War, but will also be able to walk past the ruins of everyday houses which date back more than 3,000 years. You can also walk the same paths as the people of the city did three millennia ago. Following your tour, you will re-board your tour bus to be carried back to Çanakkale where you will catch the ferry to travel from Asia to Europe. After enjoying lunch at a restaurant, you will then take a trip into the past on a half-day tour of Gallipoli. You'll travel by air-conditioned minibus to the battlefields and war memorials of the ANZAC campaign of the Battle of Gallipoli during World War I. Upon arrival on the Gallipoli Peninsula, your tour will focus on the ANZAC sector of the infamous battlefields. You'll stop at 11 different points of interest to learn more about the fateful events of the Australian and New Zealand troops, including ANZAC Cove where the troops first landed and set up base. Following that you will go to Beach Cemetery, where many of the soldiers who died during the Battle of Gallipoli were buried. You can pause to reflect at the Lone Pine Memorial, one of 5 memorials on the peninsula that commemorate servicemen of the former British Empire killed in the campaign but who have no known grave, before visiting the battlefields of The Nek and Chunuk Bair. At the conclusion of your tour, you will take the ferry back to Canakkale.
