Troy was known to the northwest of the country by Homer’s “Iliad” and the Trojan Horse, about 25 kilometers from Canakkale. When you visit Troy today, you need a lot of imagination to be able to imagine the settlement layers as a whole that have been released by German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann since 1870.
Bodrum is located on the site of the ancient city of Halicarnassus, which is particularly famous for its mausoleum, one of the Seven Wonders of the world. The mausoleum was partly destroyed by earthquakes, but also by the dismantling of building materials. Bodrum is now one of the most important tourist centres in Turkey and is just opposite the Greek island of Kos. Noteworthy is the well – preserved crusader castle, which also houses the Museum of Underwater Archaeology.
Ephesus had come to fame and wealth in the Roman period as the capital of the province of Asia. Today, the ruins of Ephesus are among the biggest sights of Turkey and are the largest ruins of Asia Minor.
The small town of Pamukkale was given its name by the impressive lime formations, which have been created over millennia by calcareous thermal springs and today represent a popular tourist attraction. The terraces are on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
