Canakkale to Cappadocia?

by smitbet

Hi!
I may possibly have one extra day on arriving in Canakkale and before returning to Istanbul. Is it possible to go to Cappadocia, see something, and return to Canakkale in one day? I heard there is a night bus. How long does it take?
Thanks,
Beth

NO!

Canakkale to Cappadocia will be almost (or more than) half a day travel by bus, means you already have consumed the full day (24-hour) going and coming back.

I was in Cappadocia last year and spent 3 days there and was able to see some of the highlights. Cappadocia is not really a place for a day stop-over if you really want to have that Cappadocia experience. You have to, at least, spend a night there as most highlights are through a guided tour.

Cappadocia (Goreme, Urgup) is an amazing one-of-a-kind place on earth, you have to see the sights which are spread all over the region.

Enjoy your Canakkale trip though, I was there too. I would suggest Bergama, it is nearer to Canakkale if you are pressed for time. Bergama is the modern town that host the Ancient City of Pergamum, wonderful sights too. About 4 hours from Canakkale by bus.

Or try Assos, an hour and a half from Canakkale - once home of Aristotle - to see the Temple of Athena, that is, if ur into ruins.

But I would really highly recommend staying a night in Cappadocia if you could, you won't regret it.

Check my Goreme Page for Cappadocia. Enjoy your trip!

Or you could go to Troy from Canakkale.

As previously said, it's a long way away at least 16hrs by coach so do as was already given, Troy or Assos/Behramkale or both as Troy is off the road south anyway, there could be a tour doing them both.

Hi Beth,

I agree with the other Vters for your Cappadoccia plan.it s tiring to do Canakkale and Cappadocia.I suggest you to see Cappadocia .But spent at least 2 nigths in there.Take a fligth from Istanbul to Nevsehir.Cehck thy.com

If you are an ANZAC and really need to see Gallipoli other options in this area
Come from Canakkale via Bursa.Stay in Bursa second capitol of the Ottomans and very nice city to see.

Stay one nigth in Bursa and take a fast ferry from Bursa to Istanbul.
1:25 min. www.ido.com.tr

Also if you go Gallipoli hire a car from Istanbul take Istanbul-Bandirma fast ferry takes 2 hours and bandirma -canakkale is 2 hours.

for more question please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail.

Travel Tips for Canakkale

Troy Horse

by SamiGuzel

You can see original Troy Horse which is used n Troy film n Canakkale. It is Iocated on a mound called ''Hisarlýk'' on the south-east side of the plain of the River Scamender, where the Straits join with the Aegean and are tather narrow, within the boundaries of the Province of Çanakkale Troy is famous for different reasons. First it is associated with the sagas of the Trojan War told by Homer in the ''Iliad and the Odyses''. Second it is Iinked with the German excavator Schliemann who dug the ground the first time. At the end of the excavations nine cities have been unearthed. Later on they have been subdivided into 46 strata.

Troy

by Willettsworld

Legendary Troy proved to be fact when, in the 1870s, a wealthy German businessman, Heinrich Schliemann, began excavating in this area. He discovered the ruins of a series of ancient cities dating from the Bronze Age to the Roman period. Schliemann declared one of these cities — at first Troy I, later Troy II — to be the city of Troy, and this identification was widely accepted at that time.

Located about 30km south-west of Canakkale, there is, in fact, more than one Troy. Altogether there are nine - dating from around 3,000 BC to the 5th century AD. Each one is built on top of the last which means that Troy was built in different layers through the centuries. This means you have to use your imagination and the reconstruction plans to get some idea as to what the ruins might have looked like. The 7th Troy is most likely to have been the setting for Homer's famous Iliad - an epic poem of the Trojan War, said to be among the oldest extant works of Western literature, dating to around the eighth century BC. For more on Troy, visit my Troy page below:

Open: 8.30am-7pm (summer), to 5pm (winter). Admission: TL15.

Archaeology Museum - Part 1

by Willettsworld

This museum is located about 1.5km south of the town centre on the main road that goes to Troy. It's exhibits are those from Troy, Assos and Dardanos, an ancient site about 10km south-west of the town. They have two sarcophagi that are of the highest quality, one of which is said to be the oldest in Anatolia. The lighting isn't the best for photos but there's a lot of exhibits outside.
