Full description
The tour starts at the door of your Çanakkale accommodation at 11:00AM. From there, take a 35-minute trip to the ancient city of Troy. Visit the museum of Troy and see the unique artifacts excavated around it, and following some free time for lunch, meet your local guide to visit the UNESCO-listed site of Troy. Throughout the tour your guide will explain the mythology surrounding Troy, as well as the history and discoveries of the archaeological excavations. This ranges from its discovery by Heinrich Schliemann in the 1870s through to the present day. Nine cities have been discovered here, built one on top of the other and dating back to before 3500 B.C. The city made famous by Homer in his book the Iliad describing the 10-year war is just one of these layered settlements. Not only will you see the still-impressive defensive walls of the ancient city and learn the story of the Trojan War, but you will also be able to walk past the ruins of everyday houses which date back more than 3,000 years, walking the same paths of people three millennia ago. Following your tour, re-board the tour bus to be carried back to Çanakkale, where you will be dropped off to your hotel door.

A wonderful day visiting the site of ancient Troy and seeing remnants from each of its' nine incarnations. For anyone interested in history, this is a great day out and I was lucky enough to have Bukran as the guide for our tour. He has an expert knowledge and showed us many things which a casual visitor may have missed. After touring the city ruins, the visit to the museum was fascinating and well worth a few hours. Exhibits from all eras of Troy are on display in a well laid out and accessible manner.
