Day 4: Istanbul - Canakkale

This morning, we drive to the Gallipoli Peninsular. On 25 April 1915, Allied soldiers including Australian and New Zealand troops landed at what has since become known as ANZAC Cove to commence the Allied offensive against the Turks. A lasting legacy of this fateful campaign are the many poignant war memorials including the national memorials of Australia and New Zealand - Lone Pine and Chunuk Bair, along with numerous carefully tended cemeteries, the remains of crudely dug trenches and of course ANZAC Cove. Take the chance to pay your respects, place a flower on a grave and learn about the history of the men who came to be known as the ANZACs on our guided tour of the area. Overnight - Canakkale

Day 5: Canakkale - Istanbul

Early this morning we continue to Troy. If you’ve seen the movie - ‘Troy’ based on poet Homer’s ‘The Iliad’ you’ll be familiar with Paris, his prized Helen and Hector on the Trojan side and Agamemnon and Achilles on the Aechaean side. The legend of the lost city of Troy and Homer’s poetry was brought alive by it’s rediscovery in 1863. Subsequent excavations revealed 9 ancient cities, one on top of the other, dating back to 3000BC! We enjoy a tour of the ruins and see a replica of the Trojan wooden horse that helped sack Troy. The tour of Troy finishes in late morning and the rest of the day is spent at leisure in Cannakale until 6pm when you are transferred back to Istanbul with a late evening arrival. Overnight - Istanbul
