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.

Great ruins and tour by guide, a lot more to this area than I had ever thought. Would recommend to anyone in the area to visit, with a guide to fully appreciate the ruins and history

Am I the only one who thinks this way? This place is an absolute disaster! And the entrance fee is 25TL ($7+) There is absolutely nothing to see other than a horse and a whole lot of rocks! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY! Maybe if you are into archeology is maybe sorta worth it but there really isn't... More

History of the ages captured in one place. Magnificent. A must do when visiting Turkey. Hassle Free Travel provides a really good array of English speaking guides.

I visited with a tour which is very unusual for me as I normally prefer to visit sites alone. Our guide was Ercan Yavuz from Hassle Free tours and he was very knowledgeable and brought the place to life.

OK, we climbed the horse too. It is a bit of fun and keeps your place in your photos! The archaeological site itself is much larger, shows 6 distinct layers of history/settlement (so far) and has excellent signs and interpretative assists. You can look out from the higher parts to the waterways where the boats came in. Walking through the... More

Troy must be seen, good historical place and well maintained. There is a parking place where you can leave your car.

I organised to head to Troy on a whim during a business trip to Canakkale, and organised the tour through Helles Point (in Canakkale), who set me up with Crowded House tours. My guide was Sukru, and he was sensational! Very knowledgeable about the site, about the archaeological theories of the site and location, and the Homer mythologies too. So... More

The ancient city Troy is fantastic and amazing. Before you go to visit pleas have your tour guide . After visiting only you can imagine how 3000 years BC a city was made . Worth visiting . The Hassle free travel agent at Canakkale arranged private tour with English speaking guide Mr Ercan Yavuz . Fantastic service and excellent 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
