Excursion Itinerary: Canakkale And Ephesus From Istanbul

ISTANBUL - GALLIPOLI - CANAKKALE
1
ISTANBUL - GALLIPOLI - CANAKKALE

Early in the morning you will travel overland to the Gallipoli Peninsula, one of the most emotionally evocative places in Turkey, the World War I Battlefields of Gallipoli. In early 1915 French, British and colonial forces fought the Gallipoli campaign to secure a sea route to relieve their eastern ally, Russia. However, after eight months of fighting the Allied soldiers withdrew with heavy casualties, while the campaign also marked one of the greatest Ottoman victories. There are now many cemeteries and war memorials on the historic site, such as the Brighton Beach, the Beach Cemetery, Anzac Cove, Ariburnu Cemetery, the Anzac Commemorative Site, Respect to Mehmetik Statue dedicated to Little Mehmet who carried a Kiwi soldier to safety, Lone Pine Australian Memorial, the Nek, Chunuk Bair New Zealand Memorial.    You will cross the Dardanelles, also known as the Hellespont, by ferry and head to Canakkale. Arrival, check in at your hotel and overnight stay.

Greca Tip: In the Gallipoli Museum, apart from the soldiers' uniforms and ammunition, photographs and personal effects, you will also see the letters that they wrote to their families about their experiences in the battlefield.

CANAKKALE - TROY - PERGAMON - IZMIR
2
CANAKKALE - TROY - PERGAMON - IZMIR

Today you will step back in time as you will visit the ancient city of Troy, also called Ilion, which flourished because of its key position on trade routes between Europe and Asia.  You will continue to Pergamon, one of the cultural, commercial and medical centers of the ancient world in Asia Minor. In Pergamom you will visit the Acropolis, the steepest theater in the world, Asclepius, and you will have a panoramic view of the Altar of Zeus, mentioned in the Book of Revelations. Another important place that you will visit is the Library, which, according to archaeologists, competed with that of Alexandria, with more than 200,000 written records. The name of the city continues to live as a distortion of Pergamon, "pergamini" or 'parchment', which was the paper that resulted from the treatment of sheepskins and rivalled papyrus for writing purposes. You will then head to Izmir, check in at your hotel, enjoy your meal and rest.

Greca Tip: Stroll along Izmir's beautiful waterfront and watch a happy candy vendor expertly twirl his vats of liquid sugar onto a stick for you.

IZMIR - ISTANBUL

IZMIR - ISTANBUL

Breakfast at your hotel and then transfer to Izmir Airport for your flight to Istanbul. Upon arrival in Istanbul, you will be transferred to your hotel.  

Greca Tip: Don't forget to stock up on packets of delicious hazelnuts, lokums and Turkish coffee somewhere along your trip.
