Reviews of Troy

The most famous ancient city in Turkey, the site of Troy has nothing left to show you the grandeur of the city that was.

My suggestion:
In order to understand the site better, because there is so little of it left, I strongly recommend you hire a guide, or use an audio-guide.
My review
Homer's Illiad, one of history's most famous works of literature, celebrated Troy, assuring it a place in our literature, in our collective unconscious, and in world heritage. It's not surprising, then, that the ancient site of the town of Troy (or the towns of Troy, as there are 9 different Troys, extending from 3,000 years B.C.E. to the 6th century C.E.), is one of the most visited sites in Turkey.
