Overview

After an early pickup from your Istanbul hotel, hit the road and travel south by luxury coach toward the ancient city of Troy. The full journey takes up most of the morning, so to break it up, stop in the town of Tekirdag for breakfast and a Turkish coffee (own expense). Around midday, stop again in Eceabat, on the east coast of the Dardanelles.

After your two-course lunch in one of the town’s best seafood restaurants – Liman – hop on board a ferry for the 20-minute crossing to Canakkale. From here, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Troy is a short coach ride away.

Easily one of the world’s most famous archaeological sites, Troy dates back nearly 4,000 years and is said to signify the first contact between Anatolia and the Mediterranean countries. On a 1-hour walking tour around the site, your guide will talk about Troy’s history and its development as a series of settlements. Learn how it started as a Bronze Age dwelling, survived a Balkan invasion, was rejuvenated during Greek and Roman rules, and even a had stint as a Byzantine town before falling into a state of ruin.

Hear tales of the Trojan War – an important Greek mythological story – and learn about the Trojan prince (Paris) who ran away with Zeus’ daughter (Helen) and thus sparked the 10-year war. After exploring the ruins, visit the wooden Trojan Horse that symbolizes the town and the Trojan War before returning to Istanbul.
