Discover Homer's Immortalized City


Ancient Troy is famous for the legendary Trojan Horse from the times of an equally legendary couple: Helen and Paris. Homer immortalized Troy with his narration of the stories of King Priam, Hector, Paris and the beautiful Helen. Excavations on the site have revealed at least nine separate periods of settlement. The ruins include a temple, a theater and the foundations of other constructions. Today, a recent wooden copy of the famous Trojan Horse symbolically stands at the entrance to the site to recall its legendary origin, long since vanished.
Here are some of the spots to visit;
The Trojan Horse
Sacrificial Altars
The 3700-year-old Troy lV city walls
Temple of Athena remains
Houses of Troy I and II
The Odeon
Remains of the various cities from Troy I through to Troy IX
Çanakkale Archeological Museum.
Free time to visit a replica of the wooden horse (Hollywood one)
