TROY AND ITS SURROUNDINGS

Troy is a fascinating site. But to understand it you need a  bit of imagination. I can bring it to life for you and make you love Troy.

  The Iliad and the Odyssey are  a ‘must’ if you want to get the most out of  Troy.But if you haven’t read them before you came don’t worry- you will certainly want to when you leave.

The surroundings of Troy,which we call  ‘the Homeric landscape’,are as interesting as Troy itself .The RiverScamander , the River Simois ,Mount Ida, where the first beauty contest of the Universe took place,Beşik Bay where  the Greeks probably landed 3000 years ago and the island of Tenedos,opposite the harbour ,The tumuli  on the horizons of Troy,so called ACHILLEION,the tomb of Ajax are all places of interest.The abandoned Granite Quarries with their huge monolithic columns are matchless in the world and  await your  discovery.

The Roman  aqueduct is 14 km away from the ruins of Troy. How about ASSOS and ALEXANDRİA TROAS? Or perheps you would like to see APOLLO SMINTHEION  where the temple of  Apollo stands.
