Highlights of This Tour:
 
Early departure for Troy, scene of Homer’s Illiad, the story of the Trojan War and the first great work of Western literature. Here Achilles, Hector and Agamemnon performed their heroic exploits in their attempts to recapture Helen, whose face launched 1,000 ships. Today, Troy is the subject for a major Hollywood film, starring Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom. The site dates back to the very early Bronze Age (2500 BC) and was discovered by the German archeologist Heinrich Schliemann in the late 19th century. The city was destroyed and rebuilt many times, with the result that the site consists of many layers, one city atop the other. To the layman, perhaps the most impressive feature is the massive ramparts. After visting the site, we then drive to Çanakkale and cross the Hellespont to explore the First World War battlefields of the Gallipoli peninsula. This was the scene of the world’s first modern amphibious landing, planned by Winston Churchill, and one of Turkey’s greatest military victories of modern times, but it was won at the cost of enormous losses on both sides, particularly among the heroic ANZAC troops.
