Description

Step into the setting of Homer's epic poem The Iliad with a full-day tour to the legendary city of Troy from Istanbul. En route, ferry across the Dardenelles, pass by battle sites from WWI, and see the waterfront landscapes of the Marmara Sea.

Depart your hotel in the early morning, watching the sun come up as you cruise out of the city and along the shoreline of the Marmara Sea. Admire lovely summer homes scattered along the beaches and sprawling fields of sunflowers as you make your way to the Dardenelles and board a ferry to traverse the strait.

Pass by Gallipoli, where the so-called “Gentlemen's War” was fought between the Ottomoan and ANZAC troops during the first World War, and drive a short distance after docking to reach Troy.

Roam the ancient city, scoping out the ruins of the millenia-old stone walls, the crumbling columns of the Temple of Athena, and the archaeological site around the Odeon. Discuss the Greek myths of the Trojan Wars sparked by Helen of Troy as you stand before a symbolic statue of the Trojan Horse, and return to Istanbul with a new understanding of Turkey's age-old heritage.
