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.

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

The talk of 9 cities built on top of each other is confusing. No decent plan exists that shows you how they were built or to identify them, Been there seen it. The replica horse is just that.

Troy is an open-air museum displaying the nine levels of the city of Troy. The ruins are well-preserved and excellently displayed. There are information tables and clear signs. The museum is in a beautiful location, 30 km from the town of Canakkale. Recommended.

History buffs will love this! For those not quite up on their ancient history, best to go with a guide for a more in depth look. It's an archeological excavation site, so I found it hard to understand without our guide pointing things out to us. There is a replica of the Trojan horse you can go up in. There... More
