Turkey | Canakkale Canakkale is located on the easternmost shore of the Dardanelles, is a port city in western Turkey, and has a small population. It is best known for being close to the ancient city of Troy. The natural Trojan horse has become the representative of the entire city. There are not many tourists in the city, and the atmosphere is very quiet. Unlike other famous tourist cities in Turkey, this small town is very suitable for leisure and can also feel the life of local people. If you drive around Turkey in a counter-clockwise way, this city is a good stopover on the way to Izmir. It can make the trip less stressful. You can also take a look at the ancient city of Troy. It is a very reasonable arrangement in self-driving Turkey. Recommended for small partners with the same itinerary!
