1870. In scientific terms, its extensive remains are the most significant demonstration of the first contact between the civilizations of Anatolia and the Mediterranean world. Moreover, the siege of Troy by Spartan and Achaean warriors from Greece in the 13th or 12th century B.C., immortalized by Homer in the Iliad, has inspired great creative artists throughout the world ever since. It became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998.

Troy is awesome! The site is incredibly well preserved, and yet even for all its fame, there weren't too many people there when we visited.

A very important archeological site over 4,000 years old. A guide is needed in order to fully understand all the layers that have been unearthed, and the fascinating stories of the German who did much of the excavation. You can climb up in the Trojan horse replica for fun, but it is definitely not how the real one looked so many years ago.

First off I watched the movie Troy with Brad Pitt on the bus ride to the site, so I was pretty excited by the time I got there (Also it's one of the favorite movies/historical story). A lot of people had told me that it was just a pile of rocks - this is certainly not a pile of rocks. The entire amphitheater was intact as were many of the walls around the old city! Certainly not the biggest Ancient city site in Turkey, but the legend of Troy makes the ruins come alive.

There is not as much left here as at sites like Ephesus but it is cool nonetheless. Surprisingly, none of the informative signs let you know which layer was supposedly the site of the semi-mythological Trojan War, but it is Troy VII.

It is very nice to visit it if you are interested in archeology or history. It gets really hot during summer, so watch out! :)
