Archaeological Site of Troy

Brief description

Troy, with its 4,000 years of history, is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Its extensive remains are the most significant demonstration of the first contact between the civilisations of Anatolia and the Mediterranean world. Moreover, the siege of Troy by Spartan and Achaean warriors from Greece in the 13th or 12th century B.C., immortalised by Homer in the Iliad, has inspired great creative artists throughout the world ever since.
