Overview
More
Gallipoli was the site of a major battle in World War I and this peninsula, part of the Dardanelles, is still remembered as a major defeat for the Allied Forces—and a springboard for the future Turkish leader Mustafa Kemal. The beautiful, quiet park is dotted with memorials and other features; it is the site of a big annual memorial for the thousands of Australian and New Zealand forces who died here.

We travelled approximately 4000 kms around Turkey, commencing in Istanbul and finally boarding a ferry from Canakkale, across the Darneldenelles, and culminating our trip in Gallipoli/Istanbul. My first impression on arrival in Gallipoli was the size of Anzac cove. The cove is best known for...More

It is actually sad to see all the soldiers who have died in here. Most have not seen their 25th age.

A very beautiful peninsula and worth a morning or afternoon to explore. A very significant lesson can be had from this tragic war grounds . Google before and get a guide, too many stories that don't need to be forgotten .

I spent a day travelling around the peninsular (hire car) and what struck me most was how one-sided we all are. When I went to the Turkish memorials (and the excellent Visitors centre) there were bus loads of Turkish tourists. But at the Allies sites,...More

We did the trip from Istanbul and spent the day touring the battlefields. I recommend getting a local guide as the information they have makes all the difference

This is a well kept area so thank you to the Turkish people....so much feeling here for the poor soldiers that laid their lives down all that time ago.....I went with a small tour group through Intrepid and it was thoroughly worth it.

The beautiful terrain and many well crafted monuments to World War I cover many many miles, laid out mostly on 1-way roads. To minimize the crowds and hundreds of buses and cars avoid going on a weekend or holiday. The reenactment program at one museum...More

We used Crowded House (based in Eceabat) - as per our review. They do very good tours and they are 'local' to Gallipoli. The snag with companies based in Istanbul can be a lack of local knowledge. Bear in mind that the... More
