The Ancient City of Alexandria Troas, Turkey

David's Been Here is touring all the top sites and best day trips inside Turkey. In this quick video, David brings us to one of the biggest and wealthiest cities of the ancient world: Alexandria Troas. Established by Alexander the Great, this affluent city was said to have been so grand that Caesar once considered moving the Roman capital to this location. Also visited on multiple occasions by St. Paul, Alexandria Troas played an important role in ancient Christianity as well. For a unique and interesting day trip, take the 40-minute drive out from Canakkale to the ruins of Alexandria Troas; entrance is free and the site is definitely worth the visit. For more information on this and all the top sites and day trips in the country, check out the David's Been Here Guide to Turkey, now available for your Kindle as well.
