Voyage to a land of legends, wars & myths

There are a few things you need to know to answer the “what should we do here?” question. Because while we dock at Kepez, a small seaside town located about two miles away from the larger town of Canakkale, there are some pretty spectacular day trips on the menu.

First off, you could join us on a Land Discoveries® shore excursion of the ancient city of Troy. Once the stuff of mythology, archaeological excavations at Troy have brought life to Homer’s Iliad and the tale of Helen, who was won by means of a Trojan horse.

Then there’s the Gallipoli Peninsula, the site of the ill-fated WWI Allied campaign resulting in the deaths of over 130,000 soldiers. A battle particularly poignant for Turkey, Australia, and New Zealand, Gallipoli offers dozens of memorials, cemeteries, and museums, not to mention a beautiful and emotional setting.

A little further afield is Assos—once home to Aristotle, visited by Saint Paul, and invaded by Alexander the Great, and now a seaside retreat with ancient sites like the Temple of Athena. And if you’re still looking for inspiration, be sure to read our Destination Immersion Blog on Kepez.
