Meet your personal guide at your Istanbul hotel or port, and travel along the Sea of Marmara during the 4-hour trip to the historic Gallipoli peninsula. Have lunch at Eceabat before taking in the WWII-era sights, from the Kabatepe Warm Museum to Chunuk Bair, where a New Zealand memorial marks the highest point captured during the Gallipoli campaign.
See where the first wave of ANZAC troops landed at Brighton Beach, and learn how thousands of soldiers lived and fought on the beach throughout the campaign. See the Ari Burnu Cemetery and ANZAC Commemeration Site, then visit the Lone Pine Australian Memorial, where Australians captured Turkish trenches during the August offensive.
Explore original Allied and Turkish trenches and tunnels at Johnston’s Jolly, and take in the 57th Regiment Turkish Memorial, devoted to a regiment that were “ordered to die” in April 1915. See the narrow ridgeline where The Battle of the Nek was fought, then immortalized in ‘Gallipoli,’ and get tips on the best place to pause for dinner on the return trip to Istanbul.
