Canakkale Province travel guide

Battlefields · Beaches · Monuments
Çanakkale Province straddles two continents, touching both Asia and Europe with its sandy shores. The province is home to many legends and abounds with historical and mythological tales. The harbors are crowded with colorful yachts and fishing boats, while quaint white plaster houses with terracotta-tiled roofs and portside cafes line the shores. Home to the archaeological site of Troy, the province was the site of the mythological Trojan War and exhibits the Trojan Horse from the 2004 movie. In the provincial capital city Çanakkale, narrow sloped streets lead to pastel-colored houses. The Mediterranean climate and seaside charm make this a good holiday retreat.
