Our tour will begin with Troy. The ancient city of Troy is one of the world’s most famous ancient cities. The site slept forgotten untill Heinrich Schliemann, a German-born American millionaire-turned amateur archaeologist, decided to prove that the Homeric myths were not pure fiction. Staking out the most promising site along the cost, he hired local workers and began excavating.To the astonishment of fellow archaeologists, Schliemann uncoverd the ancient city.When we entered the ancient city with a rich history of the legend, we will see first the Trojan Wooden Horse. From seeing Troy’s ancient walls, climbing around the ruins, and gazing across the Troad (the plains of Troy) towards the waters of the Dardanelles and the hills of Gallipoli beyond.Troy is impressive for its great age and beautiful situation. People raised on stories of the TROJAN WAR should not expect imposing ruins, the city Homer wrote about came tumbling down 3000 years ago.But the remaining Bronze age fortifications, given their age, are remarkably well preserved.The tackytion.Nevertheless, if you are familiar with the Homeric stories of Hector, Paris and foxy Helen, you will get the sensation that these immortalized characters did indeed play out the tragedy on this site. Nine distinct strata, each containing the remains of city from a different period, have been identifed and dubbed Troy İ through Troy İX. An illustrated explanation of each stratum is availeble in the Excavation House.Troy İ dates from 3200 BC The city of Homer’s İliad is now believed to be Troy Vİ, not, ironiccally, Troy İİ, the city Schliemann excavated.Look out for house foundations, city walls, a temple, theater and bring bottle of water, because you will need it.After you have taken in the sights your Troy Tour guide will give you approx one hour free time to stroll at your leisure or relax have some refreshments is for lunch. And then we’ll move Canakkale.
We will go Archaeological museum of Canakkale.Canakkale has a nice archaeological museum with many objects distributed in 5 different halls and it displays archaelogical items from Troy, Dardanos, Assos and Bozcaada with mythological figures that were discovered during excavations near Biga and Can.The Naval Museum in Cimenlik park is a first class military museum with different exhibitions areas spread over the grounds of the park.We will go Hystorical Mirror Bazaar.Then your city tour continues with a short stop at the replica of the Trojan horse that stands on Canakkale’s waterfront. The Trojan Horse is a tale from the Trojan War about the subterfuge that the Greeks used to enter the city of Troy and end the conflict. İn the canonicalversion, after a fruitless 10-year siege, the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, and hid a select force of men inside. The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the horse into their city as a victory trophy. That night the Greek force crept out of the horse and opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, which had sailed back under cover of night. The Greeks entered and destroyed the city of Troy, decisively ending the war.One street back from the wharf you’ll see The clock tower that is one of the symbols of the city. Emili Vitali, an İtalian tradesman and honorary consul of the time, built the clock in 1897. There is a clock face on each of the four sides of the tower built of local Ayvalik stone. A wealthy Jewish resident of the town called Halyo built the public fountain beneath the tower in 1889. The Clock tower now acts as one of the symbols of Canakkale . Vitalis who died in Nice, France, wanted a watersystemand a clock tower to be built in Canakkale with his wealth amounting to 10,000 French gold pieces.
