Troy Ancient City Tours

The ancient city of Troy is located in Canakkale, Aegean Sea, around the historical ruins known as Hisarlik. Heinrich Schliemann, an amateur archaeologist, found it in 1870, and archaeological investigations have taken place since then. Baths, odeons, theaters, bouleuterion, and other structures can still be seen at the historic site today. Furthermore, archaeological digs revealed that the old city contains 9 layers, indicating that it was demolished and rebuilt over centuries.

 

The epics of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, written in the eighth century BC, tell the myth of the Trojan War, which lasts ten years and ends with the well-known tactical Trojan Horse maneuver in history that has occurred here.

 

According to the myth, the first beauty contest was held here among the gods Eris, Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite. Paris picked Aphrodite as the winner in exchange for the world's most beautiful woman's love, Helen. When Paris kidnaps Helen and takes her to Troy, the battle between Menelaus, King of Sparta, Helen's husband, and the city of Troy begins and concludes with the fall of Troy.

 

The ancient city was added to the Unesco World Heritage List in 1998 and has been a national park since 1996.
