From İstanbul to Troy, from Troy to Assos

Driving from İstanbul to Troy is about 4-5 hours including the ferry crossing the Dardanelles.
While staying in Assos, you can make a daily visit to Troy, located between Assos and Çanakkale. 
From Assos to the ancient site of Troy, Troia is about 60kms.
Assos Behramkale is a short driving distance to Troy. 2018 is announced to be the year of Troy.

Starting from 14th of April 2018 the site of Troy is open for visits at 08:00 am in the morning until 5pm 17:00hrs in the afternoon, everyday. The entry fee is 25tl, we highly recommend an audioguide that you can get on site but of course nothing is like a real good guide unless you already are one or you are an archaeologist.

Our Favorite Istanbul Activity

Bosphorus is the strait in Istanbul that divides Asia from Europe. A ferry ride along the Bosphorus is an unforgettable experience. It is touristic and so local.
Old wooden houses, mansions and palaces and the two bridges that connect to continents. Charming seaside districts, once fisherman's villages and remarkable pieces of Ottoman architecture all spread along. The current ferry schedule is here. There also some other companies running, starting mostly from Eminönü.

Ottoman Bridge in Assos, Behramkale

If you happen to arrive to Assos, Behramkale from Ayvacık, taking the old road, passing by villages such as Söğütlü and Paşaköy, you will be seeing the Ottoman Bridge in Assos, Behramkale on your left; the old bridge is parallel to the new bridge you will be crossing, so it is difficult to skip it.

 The bridge that is standing still today was built during the 14th century, after Assos went under the reign of the Ottomans. Murat Hudavendıgar Mosque in Assos,Behramkale, is another construction, remaining from that period.

We often go for walks along the banks of Tuzla Stream. If you wish to stay in Assos, Behramkale with your dog, Assos Alarga is a pet friendly hotel in Assos, Behramkale and we would gladly show you the way to the Ottoman Bridge, so you can also enjoy a long walk in the nature. Along the banks of Tuzla Stream today, there are sheep and cow shelters, during this walk in Assos, you can also run into, aquatic turtles, storks and even mustangs...
