Troy vs. Gallipoli

We will be in Kepez (Canakkale) Turkey for 1/2 day in July. The ship lists Troy and Gallipoli as possible shore excursions. While would you pick? Is Troy just a tourist trap? Is it worth just to stay in Kepez for the day or is there something better you would recommend?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Half a day would not be enough to see all of Gallipoli. You need to drive for at least 20 minutes or more to arrive at ANZAC cove you would not have time to go on to Lone PIne or any of the other sites. Troy is interesting but very small you can easily get around the ruins in 20 minutes and not far out of Cannukale. There was a great little coffee and gift shop with view to die for overlooking the Dardanelles too, on the way back. Enjoy!
