The province of Çanakkale lies in the northwest of Turkey, its shores touching both Europe and Asia. Çanakkale is the name of both the city and the province, which includes the legendary citadel of Troy, the ruins of Assos where the famous Temple of Athena was built, and the battlefields of Gallipoli. Archaeologists say there are up to 200 ancient sites in this region, many still unexcavated, so it is possible you may be wandering among ruins thousands of years old without even knowing it! There are also many Ottoman structures still standing; castles, bridges, mosques, mansions and Turkish baths.

Although you will occasionally feel as if you have stepped back in time, Çanakkale has firmly embraced the first century of the new millennium when it comes to the essentials of living, and you will have no difficulty finding an internet cafe, fax facilities, cornflakes, cash points, and other conveniences. Statistics show that half of all families in the city of Çanakkale own a car, about half use a mobile phone and the city has one of the lowest crime rates in Turkey. Those of you curious about history will find plenty to satisfy your interest in the area.

There are also lots of uncrowned corners where you can paddle along the shore, stretch out on the sand, scuba dive, or just park yourself in the shade, sipping something exotic and gazing out at the sea hoping for a glimpse of some playful dolphins. When night falls, most of the socialising takes place on or near the seafront, where there are cafes, bars, tea gardens and discos to suit everyone's taste. In short, the city and province of Çanakkale present a spectrum of entertainment, beliefs, larger-than-life characters, customs and history awaiting exploration by the inquisitive mind.
