Troy (Truva), Canakkale
(3.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 很古老的遺址,但因太古老,且是多個年代的建築累積與古時的建材在經年戰亂與天災後,很難維修與恢復原貌。 只能以導遊的解說,才能窺視一角。 
  • There's no point in entering the hıcbir without Guide. $25 entry fee of not even possible to understand people in the press. I am poured out money. the statue is located next to stan the man from the photo should I bother to see if zheke different outfit inelım cek with Chang was us $10 to neymıs!. 20 min or gezılır's so simple even a statue next to the l Hyderabad Corvids stays back with lerdekı.

  • Nothing much but walls and stones, but it tells a beautiful story. You can see and feel how it used to be 5000- 6000 years ago. I was delighted when I saw a wall made of mud bricks, all excavated places, baths, homes, wells.
  • Great place to go for half a day. With a tour you get a lot more explanations!! Pretty interesting to walk somewhere so old.
  • Ruins Still haveing to take out. Lots of history with a guide, without it, probably you can't dimention the importances.. there is a big horse in the entrance for taking pictures. Probably quite similar as the real one.
  • We had a great morning here. When we arrived, it was quiet and we were the first people around the ruins. We enjoyed the views and the history. The car park is large and free. The shop and cafe was good.
  • Is this the real ancient Troy? Some say yes, some say no. But it doesn't really matter. It's old and it's impressive.
