In ancient times, the Gallipoli Peninsula was known as the Thracian Chersonesus to the Greeks and later the Romans. It was the location of several prominent ancient towns.
During World War I, British and colonial forces attacked the peninsula in 1915, seeking to secure a route to relieve their eastern ally, Russia. The Ottomans set up defensive fortifications along the peninsula and the attackers were eventually repulsed.
On this tour, you will be exploring this area full of history and beautiful landscapes while learning about really interesting facts about the zone.
Depart early morning from your hotel in the old city of Istanbul (pick-up included) for an afternoon tour of Gallipoli. The World War I battlefields of Gallipoli are now a serene site to explore and learn about its dramatic history.
Visit Gallipoli's top attractions like the Lone Pine Australian Memorial, the Chunuk Bair New Zealand Memorial, ANZAC Cove, Brighton Beach, Beach Cemetery, Ari Burnu Cemetery, Johnston's Jolly (where you'll visit original Allied and Turkish trenches and tunnels), 57th Regiment Turkish Memorial and The Nek. You won't miss a spot of this town, so get ready to explore!
We will return to Istanbul after the tour and you will be dropped back in your hotel.
