Hence, Churchill’s words: “Canakkale is impassable!”

Your tour will start with an early morning departure from the hotel. You will drive along the European shore of the Marmara Sea, seeing some lovely summer houses on the sea side, with vast sun flower fields on the land side. You will also travel by the shores of the Dardanelles, as you will pass by Gallipoli, land of the famous “Gentlemen’s War”.

As you cross the Dardanelles by ferry, you will arrive to Canakkale city, and visit the Kabatepe war museum, Brighton beach, Anzac Cove, Lone Pine Australian Memorial and cemetery, the original tunnels and trenches at Johnston's Jolly (Turkish and Allied), The Nek cemetery, Chunuk-Bair New Zealander Memorial and cemetery.

You will then be driven to Assos, the see the Athena Temple. Assos is a quite little town, perfect for a light lunch and a small stroll, before the journey back to Istanbul.
