The Ancient City of Troy: A World Heritage as UNESCO Approves
After spending your time freely, we will reunite again. Then, we will get on the bus and get to the Ancient City of Troy, which is the main part of our Izmir Troy Tour.
In there, our guides will provide you some facts and stories about Trojans. And you will feel the unique joy of walking among the pale remains that actually was a whole in Iliad, which is the earliest literary work in Europe. The electrifying feelings will surround you.
In there, you will see a theatre, houses and their rooms, sanctuary, temples, defensive walls and gates. And you will learn their importance. You will be walking on a narrow path that Paris walked along.
The Trojan Horse: The Best Strategy Ever
Then, the most amusing part of Izmir Troy Tour will begin: We will visit the famous Trojan Horse.
Being constructed by Greeks, this enormous wooden horse was used to hide “a select force of men inside, including Odysseus”. It was actually a “gift” to Trojans: That is exactly how Greeks “fooled” Trojans and enter the borders of Troy. Of course, you will learn more about it.
You will get impressed by the sizes and look of the Trojan Horse. If you want, you can also climb the steps and enter it as an ancient Greek warrior did, and get more excited.
Comfortable Ride to Izmir
When our impressive and informative trip in Troy ends, we will get on the bus and take the roads to Izmir. After 4 hours on the roads, we will take you to your hotel and say goodbye to each other.
If you would like to feel the gods and goddesses around you and hear the battle screams of Greeks and Trojans, you should be one of our guests. To do so, you can book this tour online as all Izmir excursions we arrange. Or, you can contact us and get more information.
