Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Canakkale Tour of Troy

You will be picked up from your Istanbul hotel at 06:30 AM in the morning for our drive towards Canakkale. Upon arrival, we will immediatelly start the day off with a visit to the ancient city of Troy. The tour will start with Hisarlik Hill, the site of the ancient city of Troy, where you will learn about the mythology surrounding the city; the Trojan Horse, which was recently renovated and replaced with the version used in the 2004 blockbuster movie of the same name; as well as the history and discoveries of the archeological excavations initiated by the famous archeologist Heinrich Schliemann in 1870’s.

In Troy, nine cities have been discovered, built one on top of the other dating back to 3500 B.C. The most important highlight of the site is the Trojan Horse and the most important character you will learn about is the Helen of Troy. You will also have plenty of information on the Trojan Wars most importantly the battle between Archilles and Paris, as well as the sacrificial Altars and the 3700 years old city walls. Houses of Troy I, (3000 B.C. – 2500 B.C.) The Bouleterium (Senate Building), The Odeon (Concert Hall), the famous Trojan Horse and Legendary Troy are some of the sites that we will explore. All information about Troy today basically derives from a book called “Illiada” written by Homer around the 6th century BC. The tour will continue with a short drive to the Archeological Museum where you will have the chance to see the foundings of Troy displayed in accordance with their period and extended history of the region.

At the end of the day, we will transfer you to your hotel in Canakkale. Dinner recommended at your hotel or nearby traditional restaurants.

Day 2: Canakkale | Tour of Gallipoli, Departure

After breakfast and check-out from the hotel, we will proceed to the site where one of the most famous battles of WWI, considered to be the “last romantic war”, has taken place: Gallipoli.

You will be transferred to a local ferry, which functions between two continents, from the Asian to the European side via the famous strait Dardanelles. Gallipoli National Park has a great significance in military history being the soil on which the notorious battles of the Gallipoli Campaign of WWI took place, which contains Turkish and Allied monuments. The landscape is dotted with many cemeteries, museums, monuments, forests and most importantly Memorials honoring the lives lost from both sides of the conflict. The Military Monument in the National Park is dedicated to commemorate the soldiers who lost their lives. We will also visit the Anzac Cove. After visiting the battlefields, we will visit Kabatepe Hill National Park. The tour will continue with ferry to return to Canakkale.
