Troy Tour, Tour Programme

We take a minibus from Çanakkale down to the site of Troy. The trip takes 25 minutes each way. The tour of the site lasts about one hour. Most visitors find this quite adequate. We usually do a short stop at one other location on the way back in order to enjoy the majestic views of the historic Dardanelles Straits. The cost includes air-conditioned minibus, professional guide, and entrance fee to acient site but not the Troy museum.

Highlights

Full Description

The story of Troy is part-mythology and part-archaeology. Where does the legend stop and history begin? It involves larger-than-life figures like the heroes from Homer's Iliad: Achilles, Helen, Paris and Hector, not forgetting the rascal Schliemann, who stole its treasure. The Trojan War is a dramatic story of bravery and deceit, one that has influenced European literature since its very beginnings. Highlights of the tour include: 
 
The huge wooden Trojan Horse at the entrance (you can climb inside it).
The Visitors' Centre set up by the archaeologists, who you will see excavating around the site in July and August.
City walls dating from Early Bronze Age up to the Romans, in all, nine different settlements.
Fortification walls from Troy VI, the legendary Troy, an engineering miracle of its age that has endured 3,000 years.
The Temple of Athena, with a splendid view over the plain where the Trojan and Greek warriors once fought.
The spot where Schliemann supposedly found 'Priam's Treasure', which he smuggled away and eventually ended up in a museum in Moscow.
Stone altars where the priests sacrificed animals to appease gods and goddesses.
The Odeon and Senate - places of entertainment and oratory where musicians played the harp and debates took place.
After the tour, there is a tea break where you will have the opportunity to buy souvenirs before the trip back.
