Troy (Truva), Canakkale

#Battlefield, #Ruin, #Must See
Gaze across the plains of Troy (Truva), where Odysseus once left the proverbial wooden horse in one of the most cunning war hoaxes in history. This World Heritage Site was the center of ancient civilizations from the early Bronze Age until Roman times. Driven by his childhood obsession with Homer's epic, German businessman Heinrich Schliemann excavated the remains of nine historical civilizations in the 1870s. Walk along the remnants of rough ancient walls and across a paved chariot ramp. With your imagination and the help of a guide you can picture how the famed city from The Iliad appeared. The layer of Roman Ilium is best-preserved with its bouleuterion (the city council) and a small theater. Kids will enjoy examining the mock Trojan horse in front of the entrance. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Canakkale holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Troy (Truva) and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • If you are keen on the date when the ancient city of Troy is Çanakkale you visit. Entry fee $25. Museum card get more advantageous. The excavations continues for many years. Signboards explanatory. Listining music you can obtain information about the ancient city before or join a guided tour or headset.

  • Troy is a fantastic historical site.But German arkeolojist (This is animal not arkeolejist) destored the civizalialions.9 civizalialions we can see most importent one iş 6.troy please go and visit with a offical guide..
  • My back is in the picture for proof that I have been there. In grade school I used to read about Troy and now, to be standing next to this replica is amazing.
  • A historic place that brings out the grandeurs of the place. The role played by the various invaders in shaping this place etc. The Trojan horse is awesome inspiring.
  • This place is real, and I could feel it's life as I walked through it. A great example of civilisations past and how time surpasses all. The tacky horse out the front was a bit ordinary though. The horse from the movie in town was much more impressive.
  • Best ancient city ruins i ever visited.. lots of history and culture... trojan horse at the end of the trip was so majestic... beautiful... u can walk up the stairs into the wooden horse... all in all a memorable experience

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.
