Site of the heroic siege in in Homer's Iliad, Troy (Truva in Turkish, Ilion in Greek) was excavated in the 1870s by Heinrich Schliemann. He uncovered civilizations dating back 5,000 years, including best-preserved Roman architecture. Explanatory materials at the site are limited, so visitors should bring a good history text or hire a guide.

OK, we climbed the horse too. It is a bit of fun and keeps your place in your photos! The archaeological site itself is much larger, shows 6 distinct layers of history/settlement (so far) and has excellent signs and interpretative assists. You can look out from the higher parts to the waterways where the boats came in. Walking through the... More

Troy must be seen, good historical place and well maintained. There is a parking place where you can leave your car.

I organised to head to Troy on a whim during a business trip to Canakkale, and organised the tour through Helles Point (in Canakkale), who set me up with Crowded House tours. My guide was Sukru, and he was sensational! Very knowledgeable about the site, about the archaeological theories of the site and location, and the Homer mythologies too. So... More

The ancient city Troy is fantastic and amazing. Before you go to visit pleas have your tour guide . After visiting only you can imagine how 3000 years BC a city was made . Worth visiting . The Hassle free travel agent at Canakkale arranged private tour with English speaking guide Mr Ercan Yavuz . Fantastic service and excellent guide

This is supposedly the place of battle between the Greeks and the Trojans. Little actually remains of the various layers of a continually inhabited spot. The area was previously dug up by amateur archeologists who effectively destroyed the various layers of inhabitation. The water system in the area has silted up. As a result, there is little "feel" of what... More

There's a reason why all the photos posted are of the replica horse as there isn't really much left to see at Troy. The site has been destroyed and rebuilt so many times it was hard to get a coherent picture of the size and layout. Worth going just to say you've been there really. p,s. the Trojan horse replica...

Troy is an ancient city located approximately 30KM south of Canakkale. This archaeological site is popular with many travellers and tourists which is why our tour stopped here for visit. We had a great tour director was very knowledgeable in explaining the facts from legends, from an archaeological perspective, as well as the legend of the Trojan horse, Homer and... More
