Full Description

This is a 2 days 1-night tour to discover Turkey’s long history and famed battlefields. On the first day of our tour, we will be visiting Gallipoli which is an Italian form of a Greek word with the meaning of ‘’Beautiful City’’, and it is time to learn what is the story behind this beautiful place. We will visit Anzac cove which is the best-known spot in Gallipoli. Did you know that The Anzacs lost 8000 men in Gallipoli and 18,000 were wounded? Our guide will take us to the key battle locations and we will feel the days of the Great War together! On the second day of our tour, we will see the ancient city of Troy together! You will be listening to the interesting history of the Trojan War and the stories about Greek mythology. You will broaden your horizon with the things that you learn about this archeological place on this tour. You will be surprised when you learn how old the remains are. You will see how amazing The Odeon is with its capacity of 1500 spectators.

An area where has been fulled sadness. You see the people who do not care about their lives to protect their country. And young Anzac soldiers who do not know why they are here. In order to understand the value of country love the best place to visit.
