In the Iliad, the Achaeans set up their camp near the mouth of the river Scamander (presumably modern Karamenderes), where they had beached their ships. The city of Troy itself stood on a hill, across the plain of Scamander, where the battles of the Trojan War took place. See and hear about The Trojan Horse, Helen of Troy, The Trojan War, sacrificial altars, 3700 years old city walls, Senate Building, The Odeon and more.

After the tour, depart for Istanbul. Arrive in Istanbul around 23:45pm.
