Troy is the land where the lines between history and mythology are blurred. The Siege of Troy, as described by Homer in the Iliad and Odyssey, is one of the most well know myths in world history. In 1870 ancient ruins believed to be Troy were discovered and you will have a chance to see these nine sites in the company of our professional tour guide. They will explain the lifestyles and cultures of the people in that era, and the architectural and archeological features of the houses and the sites.
