Full description
Your tour begins at the door of your hotel in Canakkale, where you will be met by your driver to take a 30-minute drive to Troy. There you will be met by your tour guide who will explain the mythology surrounding Troy, as well as the history and discoveries of the archaeological excavations. You'll learn the city in detail, from its discovery by Heinrich Schliemann in the 1870s through to the present day. You will not only see the still-impressive defensive walls of the ancient city and learn the story of the Trojan War, but will also be able to walk past the ruins of everyday houses which date back more than 3,000 years. You can also walk the same paths as the people of the city did three millennia ago. Nine cities have been discovered built one on top of the other dating back to before 3500 B.C., with the city made famous by Homer in his book the Iliad describing the 10-year war being just one of the layered settlements. Following your tour, you will re-board our tour bus to be transported back to Canakkale, where your experience will conclude.
