Canakkale Tours and Travels
Imbued with myth and legend, Canakkale is a bustling university town with a fascinating past that is sure to captivate anyone who ventures through. Although Canakkale is often used as a platform for visiting the nearby battlefields of Gallipoli and the ancient ruins of Troy, this town is well deserving of some attention as it has a lot to offer of its own. With a number of different cultural influences present in the landscape of the town, most noticeably from the Greek, Jewish and Armenian communities, the town is as diverse as it is striking and should be explored in depth by those passing through.Read More
