Daily Troy Tour İstanbul, Türkiye

Description

Troy is a name that evokes stories of legendary empires, epic tales and courageous soldiers… Inhabited since the 3rd millennium BC, Troy has been one of the most important cities of the Mediterranean for many centuries. Its fame is due to the Greek epic novel ‘Iliad’, where Homer described the mythical ‘Trojan war’.

With our daily tours from Istanbul you will discover the real Troy, which today is an important archaeological site in the Northwest of Turkey, close to the Dardanelles.

The tour starts in the early mourning, when you will be picked up from your hotel to go to Çanakkale, a city located on the narrow strait of the Dardanelles. On the way to Çanakkale you will coast the Marmara Sea and see some typical villages of the Thracian region. The Dardanelles is a strait that connects Sea of Marmara to Aegean Sea. The area is very important for the memory of the Turkish Republic in that here it took place one of the crucial battles of the Independence war in the 1915. In Çanakkale you will have a lunch break.

The arrival to the archaeological site will be in the afternoon. Here you will be able to enter to a wooden replica of the ‘Trojan horse’ that, according to the Epic, has been used by the Spartans to get into the city-fortress. From the top of the horse you will have a panoramic view of the site.

The visit of the site starts with the fortification walls and the entrance. From here, as the Spartans did in the Epic hidden in the wooden horse, you will get inside the legendary city of Troy. Here you will see the most interesting attractions, such as the Temple of Athena, the Schliemann’s trench, the Odeon and the Sanctuary. An expert guide will follow you throughout the visit, recounting you the history of the site, between reality and epics.

At the end of the tour, our local staff will take you back to bus terminal for your return to Istanbul, or, if you want to add one of our other tours for Ephesus (DAI-2), Miletus (DAI-3) or Bursa (DAI-4), to the transport and an accommodation at the locality where the next tour will take place.
