Full description
Travel back to the days of the Trojan War and such legends of ancient history as Helen of Troy, Achilles, and Homer on a full-day tour of “Truva” (the historic city of Troy).

Depart Istanbul early in the morning (06:00-06:30) from convenient meeting points in Taksim, Beşiktaş, Beyoğlu, Şişli, Ortaköy and Bebek. Hotel pick-ups are available from Sultanahmet, Beyazıd, Sirkeci, Laleli and Aksaray. Transfer to Ataturk Airport for any last pick-ups from airport area hotels. Then transfer to Troy.

Enjoy a buffet breakfast as you cruise through the narrow straits of the Dardanelles.  Upon arrival, lunch will be served at a restaurant with stunning views of the Dardanelles as you dine. At 12.45, depart for Troy, and see the replica of the Trojan Horse from the movie “Troy” at the entrance to the legendary city.

Gaze on the remains of city walls that date back more than 3,000 years, and learn about landmark ruins and monuments, such as the Temple of Athena, Megaron House, and trench of Schliemann. Explore the death of Achilles near the Scaean Gate, and discover the site where the Trojan Horse was probably taken at the Gate of Troy VI.

See the remains of the Roman Bath, discover where the city’s music shows and poetry readings were held at the Odeon, and go to the ruins of the Bouleuterion where the council of citizens would meet. Learn about everyday life in the city at the remains of the Agora (market place) and more.

Your tour of the ruins ends at 5:00 PM with a transfer back to Istanbul at 6:00 PM, and a hotel drop off at approximately 11:00 PM.
