Meet your guide at your Istanbul hotel for an early morning departure, then begin the scenic drive along the European side of the Dardanelles. Hear stories about the ‘Gentlemen’s War’ as you pass through the key WWI-era sites of Gallipoli, where Ottoman and ANZAC soldiers clashed in fierce battles.

Take in views of the waterfront from the ferry across the Dardanelles, then learn about Troy’s real-world history during the final 25-minute drive to Troy. Explore the UNSCO-listed Troy archeological site, where you’ll discover 4,000 years of extraordinary heritage. See 23 sections of the city walls that include city gates and stone ramps, then take in the Temple of Athena and sanctuary that date back to the city of Ilion, which was also founded on the Troy site.

Learn about this area’s prehistoric settlements, Hellenistic burial sites and Roman bridges. Get a glimpse of ancient Roman life in Troy’s concert hall, council house and central market place, then relive the final moments of the Trojan War in the reconstructed Trojan Horse. Retrace your steps along the Marmara Sea, and finish the day at your Istanbul hotel.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Dardanelles Strait
Dardanelles (/dɑːrdəˈnɛlz/; Turkish: Çanakkale Boğazı, lit. 'Strait of Çanakkale', Greek: Δαρδανέλλια, romanized: Dardanéllia), also known from Classical Antiquity as the Hellespont (/ˈhɛlɪspɒnt/; Classical Greek: Ἑλλήσποντος, romanized: Hellēspontos, lit. 'Sea of Helle'), is a narrow, natural strait and internationally significant waterway in northwestern Turkey that forms part of the continental boundary between Europe and Asia, and separates Asian Turkey from European Turkey. One of the world's narrowest straits used for international navigation, the Dardanelles connects the Sea of Marmara with the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas, while also allowing passage to the Black Sea by extension via the Bosphorus.
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At:  
Troy (Truva)
Troy was the setting of the Trojan War described in the Greek Epic Cycle, in particular in the Iliad, one of the two epic poems attributed to Homer. Metrical evidence from the Iliad and the Odyssey suggests that the name Ἴλιον (Ilion) formerly began with a digamma: Ϝίλιον (Wilion);[note 3] this is also supported by the Hittite name for what is thought to be the same city, Wilusa.
