Gallipoli boasts of archaeological sites which dates back as early as 4000 B.C. and several artifacts of first world war, like sunken ships, guns, forts, trenches, bastions, etc.

Another historical site is the Gallipoli peninsula peace park, which was founded in 1973. Covering an area of 330 sq kms, the peace park houses innumerable graves and memorials of the Turkish and allied soldiers.

Every year, thousands of visitors climb the ridges of the main battlefields of Gallipoli, which have remained almost untouched.

The best time to visit this region is during the Anzac Day (April 25) when many people from Australia and New Zealand come to Gallipoli to pay respect to their ancestors who died in the Anzac war. Anzac Day tours are offered by various companies and you can undertake one to understand the Anzac Day history, its various legends and to explore the area, which has rich cultural heritage.

However, if you are more of a nature lover, you can walk along the shores or climb the ridges and find a strange serenity, which characterizes this place.
