We’re going there with the Eceabat ferry - The ancient city of Troy is one of the world’s most famous ancient cities, the site slept forgotten untill Heinrich Schliemann, a German-born American millionaire-turned amateur archaeologist, decided to prove that the Homeric myths were not pure fiction. Staking out the most promising site along the cost, he hired local workers and began excavating and to the astonishment of fellow archaeologists, Schliemann actually uncovered the ancient city.
People raised on stories of the TROJAN WAR should not expect imposing ruins, the city Homer wrote about came tumbling down 3000 years ago but the remaining Bronze age fortifications, given their age, are remarkably well preserved. Nevertheless, if you are familiar with the Homeric stories of Hector, Paris and foxy Helen, you will get the sensation that these immortalized characters did indeed play out the tragedy on this site. Nine distinct strata, each containing the remains of city from a different period have been identifed and dubbed Troy ? through Troy ?X. An illustrated explaination of each stratum is available in the Excavation House. The area of Troy ? dates from 3200 BC The city of Homer’s ?liad is now believed to be Troy V?, not, ironiccally, Troy ??, the city Schliemann excavated - look out for house foundations, city walls, a temple, theatre.
When we entered the ancient city with a rich history of the legend, we will first see the Trojan Wooden Horse which is magnificent! You will also be able to roam around Troy’s ancient walls, climbing around the ruins, and gazing across the Troad (the plains of Troy) towards the waters of the Dardanelles and the hills of Gallipoli beyond, Troy is very impressive for its great age and beautiful situation.
