A visit to the very moving Gallipoli peninsula is a must-see for any time spent in Turkey. Within a drive of approximately 5 hours of Istanbul, Anzac Cove is the sight of the ill-fated landing of the Australian & New Zealand troops during WWI. Visiting the cemeteries, particularly Lone Pine, you will find are eerily quiet despite the horrors that occurred here at the beginning of the century.
Gallipoli tours are available from Istanbul, offering either an overnight tour or more extended trips. Tour the peninsula of Gallipoli, Anzac Cove, Lone Pine Cemetery and the Turkish cemetery with your guide. Join thousands of others who come together for the Dawn service on Anzac Day, tour the areas of most importance and be a part of the service commemorating the anniversary.
Tempo Holidays can assist you in booking Gallipoli tours that run throughout the year or the Anzac day tour which includes the Dawn service. The benefit of doing a tour of Gallipoli, including Anzac Cove is the fact that you can sit back and let someone else do the driving. Then on arrival, be guided through the sights with a local guide who will give you an understanding of the events that took place here.
Some of the Gallipoli tours also continue on to include touring of Troy, and further still to Ephesus, one of the best preserved Ancient cities to be seen. Take in the sights of Ephesus with an extended Anzac day tour and extend your stay in Turkey whilst you are there making the special journey for the commemoration.
