Troy

June 28, 2011

As more than one person warned me, Troy isn’t exactly the most exciting place to visit (at least compared to places like Miletus, Afrodisias, Aizanoi, Priene, and Pergamum to mention only a few of Turkey’s spectacular ancient sites) but it’s still quite interesting:

It's a complicated site, occupied for a long time and so with many levels.
