First, we visited the remade famous Trojan Horse. As the legend states, the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse that was able to fit 30 men and they left. The men who were in the horse snuck out late at night and allowed the Greeks back in in order to enter the city of Troy and destroy it and thus end the Trojan War. While, its not certain this ever happened - there is no physical evidence of it - they did reconstruct it and you can go in it!

The wall on the left is from the first Troy (5000 years ago)
|You can see the Roman Numerals indicate which time frame these|
parts of the city are from

|Some of the best food I had in Turkey! And it was|
