Description

The Gallipoli Campaign was one of the greatest Ottoman victories during the WWI and is considered a major Allied failure. In Turkey, it is also regarded as a defining moment in the nation’s history: it was the basis for the Turkish War of Independence and the founding of the Republic of Turkey.

 

Itinerary:

Day 1: Gallipoli

To join the Gallipoli and Troy Tour, you will be picked up from your hotel in the morning and we will drive you to the tour’ starting point: the waterfront where one of the most well-known battles of the WWI took place. There, you will learn more about this battle, its history and facts.

Later on, we will continue to the Kabatepe War Museum, which contains relics from the battle including original diary extracts and letters. Next, we visit the Brighton Beach, the intended landing place by the Allies and the Anzac Cove where dawn services are held on each Anzac Day (25th of April).
You will also visit the Lone Pine Australian Memorial, Johnston’s Jolly and the Chunk Bair New Zealand Memorial. The last stop is the Kilitbahir fortress, our last stop, which was built in 1453 by Mehmet II, the Conqueror (to honour his successful siege of Constantinople). After the tour ends you will be transferred to your hotel in either Eceabat or Canakkale.

 

DAY 2: Troy

After breakfast we will drive to Troy. Here you will learn the mythology surrounding Troy, The Trojan Horse and Helen of Troy. Until now, 10 cities have been discovered there, one built on the top of the other, dating back to 3500 BC. You will also hear about the battle between Archillies and Paris, the Remains of Troy IX, the Alters and the Houses of Troy I, dating back to 2500 BC. After our morning Troy tour we will depart from Canakkale and drive back to Istanbul. After arrival we will transfer you back to your hotel.
