About this tour

Explore the legendary ancient city of Troy on a full-day tour from Istanbul. Learn about myths and facts at UNESCO site and walk in the footsteps of figures like Achilles, Hector, Helen, and Paris.

Start to an immersive journey through the ancient city of Troy, delving into the scenes depicted in Homer’s Iliad. Your adventure begins as you depart from Istanbul in a comfortable, air-conditioned bus, crossing the Dardanelles to Çanakkale via a scenic ferry ride. The tour commences at your Istanbul hotel, where your driver awaits you. En route to Troy, take a leisurely break for refreshments (breakfast served at your own expense).

Relax during the drive to Eceabat, formerly the ancient city of Madytos, nestled along the shores of the Dardanelles Strait. Indulge in a satisfying lunch at a local restaurant before embarking on a 25-minute ferry journey to Çanakkale.

Upon reaching Troy, board the tour bus and kick off your exploration. Engage with captivating tales of Troy’s mythology, discover the fascinating history of its rediscovery, and glean insights from extensive archaeological excavations. Uncover the remarkable fact that nine cities, dating back to pre-3500 BC, were constructed atop each other, with the city immortalized by Homer’s Iliad being just one layer in this historical tapestry.

Marvel at the well-preserved defensive walls of the ancient city, as your guide recounts the gripping story of the Trojan War. Wander among the ruins of ancient houses, over 3000 years old, and stroll along paths trodden by inhabitants millennia ago. After the tour, return to Çanakkale, catching a glimpse of the Hollywood wooden horse from the renowned movie “Troy.” Board the ferry back to Eceabat and, following a brief break, rejoin the bus for the return journey to Istanbul. Conclude your enriching tour back at your hotel.
