Visit one of the most famous ancient sites in the world—Troy—the legendary city of King Priam that was destroyed by Achaeans in the Trojan War. Hisarlik Hill, near the entrance to the Dardanelles, is associated with the sagas of the Trojan War and was described by Homer (750 BC) in his two epic poems, The Iliad, and The Odyssey. Archaeological digs have revealed ruins of the city walls and you will also see the symbolic modern Trojan horse. Next, the drive will take you to the Archaeological Museum of Canakkale City. Here, you will see Canakkale ceramics dating from the Ottoman Empire. View chests of drawers from the 19th century, used in the oldest mansions of Canakkale and these are the best examples of wooden workmanship of the era—and tomb stele from Kyzikos in Mysia and ancient towns of the Troas region. The museum is also home to many findings from Troy.
