This is a 2-day tour from Istanbul to Troy and Gallipoli with 1 overnight stay in a hotel (B&B).
On the first day of the tour, we'll head to Gallipoli. Gallipoli is a few hours drive from Istanbul and is the site of a famous battle between the Allies (particularly soldiers from Australia and New Zealand, called ANZACs) and Turks in World War I as part of the Allied campaign to capture Constantinople. Unfortunately, it was a disaster for the Allies with more than 60,000 soldiers killed, including 10,880 ANZACs, and many thousands wounded. Although victorious, the Ottomans also suffered great losses with an estimated 85,000 soldiers killed.
It's a sombre journey but deeply moving and powerful. Your guide will take you to key battle locations and the many memorials to fallen ANZACS and Turkish soldiers where you'll learn about the great sacrifices they made for their countries.
On the second day, we will visit the ancient city of Troy. You will hear the interesting history of the Trojan War and stories from Greek mythology. See the ancient city and temple ruins and marvel at the The Odeon with its capacity for 1,500 spectators.
