TOUR ITINERARY

06:00 am – 07:00 am ─ You will be picked up from your hotels in Istanbul. (The exact time will be given before the tour day.) You will be transferred to the Çanakkale.
12:30 ─ You will have a delicious lunch at a local restaurant when we arrive in Eceabat.
13:00 ─ We will drive to Troy Ancient City and the tour starts.

  • The first starting point of our tour is the city center of Çanakkale. Here you will have a great time to explore the Trojan Horse. The Trojan horse is still standing there as a symbol of years of wars in the region. Of course, the horse you will see here is not a horse itself, but a replica. However, this replication has been quite successful. (The one which used in the movie of Troy.)
  • Our next destination will be Sacrificial Altars. This region has been built for the gods since the past and is used to bless the gods. You will learn about the religious beliefs of the past civilizations by visiting here.
  • Another destination was The 3700-year-old city walls. The importance of protecting a city from the antiquity and defending the city against the enemies was enormous. Today, these are made with firearms. In the past, wrapping around the city was a very popular method by building real huge walls. These walls are also very strong, 3700-year-old walls surrounding this ancient city.
  • Houses of Troy I, 3000 B.C. – 2500 B.C was designated as another destination. These houses are ancient houses built with a roof and still quite intact. In the past, we get the most important information about how people have a lifestyle.
  • The Agora was one of the most important places for the socialization of the ancient city. The commercial life of the city took place in Agora. Merchants used to sell their products here and customers would take their needs in these markets. In order to understand the nature of the products traded in the past, it may be very useful to see the market closely.

    The Troy is a must for archaeology lovers… Despite all the glory of the name, the Troy site doesn’t seem remarkable at a first glance to the people. It tells a very different story, though, one of the histories of modern archaeology, as you can see the results of amateurish methods that Schliemann used in the 19th century. That is really impressive to view all 9 layers of Troy at one glance. That was very nice to see the ancient city in a day from Istanbul.

    Not much at the first site…you need to get a guide! This ancient site of Troy at first glance is not much. There is just a pile of old stones. But with a good guide like Ali, it can really come alive. Our tour guide explained all the layers and different periods and pointed out details we would otherwise have missed. The guide related it back to Homers Iliad and Oddessey as well. Many only think of the Hollywood movie and if so they could be sorely disappointed. The Trojan horses replica is very good to take photos of.
