Canakkale: the Land of Brave Souls
What is the best way to discover Canakkale?
Visit the places where some of the most ferocious displays of bravery in the history of mankind were made. Canakkale and this part of the Dardanelles is where the Ottoman Navy and artillery force made the last stand against the allied armada, not letting a single ship pass by. Hence, Churchill’s words: “Canakkale is impassable!” Your tour will start with an early morning departure from the hotel at 06:00 am. You will drive along the European shore of the Marmara Sea, seeing some lovely summer houses on the seaside, with vast sunflower fields on the landside. 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 at 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, to the Athena Temple. Assos is a quiet, little town, perfect for a light lunch and a small stroll, before the journey back to Istanbul.
