Canakkale

A center of landmarks from Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman eras, Canakkale showcases natural beauty and myth. Situated on the southern bank and Asian side of the Dardanelles Strait, which connects the Aegean and Marmara Sea, this city was known as Hellespontos or Dardanelles in ancient times and dates back to 3,000 BCE. Near the historic city of Troy, this destination is beloved for its gorgeous landscape, mythological significance, and historic battlefields. Enjoy a plethora of archeological museums and chatting with the local student population, which keeps Canakkale and its cobbled streets vibrant. Canakkale is in Canakkale Province.

Where to stay in Canakkale

Surrounding the fishing port of Çanakkale, guesthouses and hostels hug the waterfront. You'll find most of the budget hotels, restaurants, and bars lining the main street just behind the seafront, while the area a little bit north offers more expensive hotels secluded from the noise of the core. The closer you are to the main street, the closer you'll be to the transport and tour guide companies that many tourists use to see the nearby attractions. There are also a number of inexpensive hotels on the island across in the town of Eceabat, a direct ferry ride from Çanakkale, and also where you'll find the historic Gallipoli site.
