– Visiting Hagia (St.) Sophia
– Visiting the Blue Mosque & Hippodrome

After the city tour you will have a lunch break before departing for Gallipoli and on the way your guide will give you some information about the Gallipoli region and the battles that took place so when you visit the various sites on Anzac Day you will understand their importance. You will also have an opportunity to watch a documentary or movie about the Gallipoli campaign so you get a feel for the type of people who fought in this war and to help you picture conditions 103 years ago. Upon arriving near Gallipoli there will be time for a dinner break before we make our way to Anzac Cove for the overnight stay at the cove.
Overnight: Anzac Cove
Meals Included: Breakfast

Important: Please bring a day pack for carrying things with you overnight at Anzac Cove and the next day in Gallipoli as once you put your main luggage on the coach on the morning of the 24th in Istanbul you will not have chance to access it again until arriving back in Istanbul on the evening of the 25th. Your main luggage will be securely locked away in the coach overnight. Please also note that the weather in Anzac Cove overnight can get very cold so we suggest you bring sleeping bags, blankets and warm clothing for this stay and even a wet weather jacket in the event that it rains.
