» Day 10 - Izmir / Canakkale (B,L,D)

We set off for Pergamon and Troy. At Pergamum, on the Acropolis on the hill overlooking the modern town, there are the ruins of a famous library, an impressive theatre, the temples of Trajan and Dionysius, the monumental altar of Zeus, the sanctuary of Demetrius, a gymnasium that looks onto three terraces and the agora. We visit the Asclepion, situated to the southwest of the city and dedicated to Aesculapius, god of health. We continue on to Troy, located in a region where history and myth merge at a strategic point of crucial importance for many millennia. Excavations here have unearthed at least nine reconstructions of the city, which dates back to the 3rd millennium BC. The Troy of Homer’s poem is situated in the level dating to 1200 BC. We spend the night in Canakkale, a pleasant port city on the shores of the Dardanelles.
