How to get to Troy
Troy (in Turkish Truva,or Troia) is located 30 km south to Çanakkale at the mound ‘Hisarlik’ on the east side of the river Scamander, where the Dardanelles strait join with the Agean Sea.
You can get there by dolmush which is going to Tefvikiye from the bridge on Ataturk Cad (3 times a day, 30 minutes in a way).
A large number of tourists visit the site each year, mostly coming from Istanbul by bus or by ferry via Çanakkale.
We reached Troy by our excursionn bus on the way from Ayvalik.

For me it was touching to sail the same waters that once sailed Jason, Medea, Heracles, Ulisses...
