Site of the heroic siege in in Homer's Iliad, Troy (Truva in Turkish, Ilion in Greek) was excavated in the 1870s by Heinrich Schliemann. He uncovered civilizations dating back 5,000 years, including best-preserved Roman architecture. Explanatory materials at the site are limited, so visitors should bring a good history text or hire a guide.

Nothing to say on the place, this is Troy, but something should be created in order to get this place more attractive and interesting. Just one horse, reconstruction, it is not enought.

You should visit this ancient place with a professional guide. Feeling the life belonging to 3000 years ago is fascinating.
