Full description
We will take you to the most important sites of the Gallipoli Campaign in this full-day tour. After an early pick-up from your hotel, we will drive through the beautiful Turkish countryside. We will stop for lunch at the beautiful coastal town of Eceabat, where we will stop for lunch. Next, we will visit the historical sites where the battles took place. The battle started on the 25th of April 1915. The Allies attempted to take the Gallipoli Peninsula to gain safe access to Constantinople, present-day Istanbul. If they took Istanbul, they would be able to knock Turkey out of the war and help Russia in its struggle against the Central Powers—Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. We will see Anzac cove, where the Allied forces made their initial beach landing. This was a strategic error, and it lead to many deaths. The tour will also visit the famous Lone Pine ridge, where Mel Gibson started in the movie Gallipoli and many Australian soldiers lost their lives. In December 1915 the Allies armies were forced to evacuate, after thousands of British, Australians and New Zealanders and Turkish soldiers had lost their lives. Finally we will go to the Gabatepe Museum and you will have the opportunity to see many relics from the campaign, including weapons, ammunition, photographs and private items of the soldiers. This moving tour is a fascinating insight into one of the fiercest battles of World War I.
