    Ferries

    If you're arriving on the Gallipoli peninsula from Canakkale, then you have two ferry options: one that arrives at the small town of Eceabat and other that arrives at Kilitbahir where the old fortress is located. There's also a third ferry that runs between Gelibolu (Gallipoli town) and Lapseki.

    The Canakkale-Eceabat ferry runs every hour on the hour from 7am-1am and then 3am & 5pm (with sailings every 30 minutes during the busy summer period). I took my hire car across and it cost TL23.

    The Canakkale-Kilitbahir ferry runs at 7am, 8am, 8.30am, 9.15am (and at 15 mins past the hour until 6.15pm), then 6.45pm, and then every hour on the hour between 7pm & midnight. There are also extra sailings in the summer at 45 mins past every hour between 9.45am and 5.45pm.

    The Gelibolu-Lapseki ferry runs every hour on the hour, 24hrs a day.

    Driving around

    The best way to get around all the memorials, museums and cemeteries is by car. I had my own car hire which I hired in Istanbul and I came to the Gallipoli peninsula from Edirne near the Bulgarian border. I stopped off at Gelibolu (Gallipoli town), about 40km north of Eceabat, before spending the night in Eceabat and then exploring the peninsula the following day. It's a nice drive that was even more nicer as it was early January and I virtually had everything to myself. As it was, I gave two American guys a lift around the battlefields and cemeteries of the northern peninsula after meeting them in the Kabatepe Information Centre & Museum. I managed to see everything in both the north and south of the peninsula in a day as well as the Kilitbahir Fortress.

    If you are not on a tour, it is useful to have your own car here. Even for just seeing the WWI sites, one will need to cover a lot of ground, making walking effectively impossible. There are good roads connecting all the sites and the area to the towns of Eceabat, Gelibolu, and others, with car ferries connecting to Canakkale across the straight and going up to Istanbul.

    Ferries between Gallipoli and Canakkale

    There are ferries, for people and cars, frequently crossing the strait back and forth between Canakkale, on the Anatolian side, and Eceabat and other places on the Gallipoli Peninsula side. Eceabat is the closer ferry terminal to the national park and WWI sites.

    There are bus services between all towns and villages in Canakkale. The island of Gokceada (Imbros) can be reached year around via the Kabatepe wharf. Bozcaada (Tenedos) is accessible via the Yukyeri wharf.

    Istanbul is 310 km, Bursa 260 km and Izmir 320 km from Canakkale.

    on a Ferry!

    O a Ferry

    If you are coming from the asian side, you should note that there is a ferry from Canakkale town to Eceyabat town in Gallipoli Peninsula.

    Or you can come visiting Gallipoli and after that cross the Dardanelli and visit Canakkale and Troya in the asian side.
