Gallipoli is a place steeped in history, and if you are in Istanbul or any other part of Turkey, a tour to the historic site is well worth considering. Whether you are interested in military history or not, the area has a huge amount of cultural significance and provides an eyeopening travel destination. The first world war battle for control of Hellespont strait was fought largely on the Gallipoli peninsula and it was a bloody and horrific conflict with 100,000 casualties. Today, in memorial, Gallipoli is a national park and has a huge amount of memorials across the multiple battlefields.
The easiest way is to use a company offering Gallipoli tours, this will mean that a lot of things are taken care of for you and you can follow a structured itinerary and ensure you see everything with a guide whilst you are there. The experience is very profound and is something that is recommended for people from all sorts of backgrounds, and many have relatives who fought in the war and find it very interesting to learn more about one of WW1’s key battles.
As well as the memorials, the landing beaches and the cemeteries, the area has an interesting natural history and is visually very impressive. Visiting the site is relatively simple if you are staying in Turkey’s capital and a Gallipoli tour from Istanbul can include pick up and drop off from your hotel and even light meals so you can just enjoy the ride without the stress of having to make your own way there.
