Tour Details

Embark on a journey through time with our Daily Troy Tour, where the legends of empires, epic sagas, and valiant warriors come to life. Troy, a city that has captured imaginations for centuries, stands as a testament to the rich tapestry of human history. Inhabited since the 3rd millennium BC, its significance was immortalized by Homer’s ‘Iliad’, narrating the fabled Trojan War. Today, Troy is a captivating archaeological site in northwest Turkey, near the strategic Dardanelles Strait, offering a unique glimpse into ancient civilizations.

The Adventure Begins

Your exploration starts early in the morning with a pickup from your Istanbul hotel, setting off on a scenic drive towards Çanakkale. Journey alongside the Marmara Sea, through picturesque Thracian villages, en route to this historic city by the narrow Dardanelles Strait. This strait not only links the Sea of Marmara with the Aegean Sea but also holds a special place in Turkish history as the site of a pivotal battle during the 1915 Independence War. A lunch break in Çanakkale will recharge you for the afternoon’s adventures.

Discovering Troy

Upon arrival at Troy in the afternoon, you’ll first encounter a wooden replica of the Trojan Horse, symbolizing the ingenious strategy of the Spartans. Climb inside for a panoramic view of the archaeological site, setting the stage for your exploration. Your tour of Troy begins with its imposing fortification walls, leading you through the city’s gates as if retracing the steps of the Spartans from the epic. Highlights include the Temple of Athena, Schliemann’s trench, the Odeon, and the Sanctuary, with each landmark weaving together threads of history and myth.

An expert guide will accompany you, bringing to life the storied past of Troy, where fact and fiction converge. From the strategic significance of its location to the tales that have echoed through time, your visit to Troy is sure to be an unforgettable chapter in your travels.

Join us on the Daily Troy Tour for an immersive experience into the heart of ancient legends, where history and mythology intertwine to reveal the mysteries of the past.
