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.

The infamous 'Schliemann Trench' cut through the middle of the site
The Roman odeion

Beware of Greeks bearing gifts!
