Gallipoli Tours from Istanbul

After a few days of touring Istanbul’s mosques, palaces and bustling markets, you may want to journey outside the city to learn about Turkey’s more recent history, specifically the World War I sites of Gallipoli, where the troops of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) came ashore on a quiet Aegean beach in 1915 to battle Turkish soldiers for control of the Gallipoli Peninsula.

They failed their goal after brutal fighting, but memorials and cemeteries dotted around the area pay tribute to both the ANZAC and Turkish troops. You can experience Gallipoli with one of many tours out of Istanbul, from a simple day trip to a week-long tour of Turkey.

It’s a six-hour drive from Istanbul to Gallipoli, so the one-day tour makes for a very long excursion, but if that’s all the time you’ve got and you’re only interested in the ANZAC sites, it’s your best bet.
