While it was by far the longest day trip I’ve ever done, beating out past destinations like Chichen Itza in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula andNeuschwanstein Castle在德国巴伐利亚地区, it was well worth it to visit one of World War I’s most臭名昭著的和令人心碎的战场, even if it did mean spending nearly 10 hours in the car to and from伊斯坦布尔。Here’s the ultimate guide for planning a trip to Gallipoli.

规划-A-一趟到加利波利

这是一段在我早期的大学时光(也是我看1994年的电影燃情岁月作为一个十几岁),我成了在所有的事情第一次世界大战,或伟大的战争非常感兴趣世界其他地区是指在现代历史上这一恐怖事件。在美国,第一次世界大战不幸得到棒的短端,当涉及到它被在学校任教,并谈到了作为一门学科。This is unfairly and stupidly due to a variety of factors, including that it wasn’t “America’s war,” since we didn’t enter the conflict until the penultimate year of fighting, while American forces were in World War II for four long years. And even then, American soldiers (or dough boys as they were referred to, including one of my own maternal great-grandfathers), only fought on the Western Front.

With that said, there are some Americans who are semi-knowledgeable about the Western Front, familiar with names of infamous places like the Somme and Ypres. But if you utter the name “Gallipoli” to most Americans, they wouldn’t have the faintest idea what you were talking about (or they might think you’re talking about the southern Italian city of the same name, which both Google and TripAdvisor thought I wanted each and every time I ran a search query). Conversely, if you were to ask an Australian or New Zealander about Gallipoli, it would be a whole different story altogether (more on this below).

我不想把这个帖子到排气的历史教训;有关第一次世界大战期间点击苦难和屠杀的这近11个月的竞选实际学习here。但是,不管你的国籍,加利波利是参观一个有价值的地方。因为它会永远记住作为现代历史上最臭名昭著的事件之一。

如果我的刺激在参观的兴趣,这里的一切你需要知道的关于计划前往加利波利。

-First things first, just likeCappadocia,加利波利是不是一个城市

该名加利波利实际上指的是半岛的名字。它的希腊名字“Καλλίπολις”意大利形式,意为“美丽的城市”,格里波鲁的现代城镇的原始名称。如果您正在寻找行车路线或住宿的地方附近,最接近加利波利战场的城镇Çanakkaleand Eceabat.

- 它是可行的从伊斯坦布尔一日游,只是一个很长的一天做好准备

我结束了预订通过基于埃杰阿巴德在一家名为拥挤的房子之旅的私人导游。他们承包司机渡轮从伊斯坦布尔客人但如果你与你的导游一天见面了它在埃杰阿巴德。拥挤的房子的经理向我解释说,这是更好的聘请导游究竟是谁住在加利波利地区采取你周围的人与较少的知识渊博谁住近五个小时的路程。

加利波利-活动

Since I booked a private tour, I was able to select the pick-up time from my Istanbul hotel which was 7:30AM. If I had done the group tour option, it was anywhere from 6:30-6:45 AM. Traffic was somewhat heavy leaving Istanbul since it was rush-hour but once out of the city limits, it lessened a lot. We drove about two hours and then the driver stopped for gas. About forty minutes after this, we stopped for a proper 30 minute break at a gas station that also featured a road-side diner and restrooms (some the dreaded pit toilet, but you are in rural Turkey, after all). As we learned, drivers are mandated to take a 30 minute break so it was the same deal on the return trip to Istanbul.

I got back to my Istanbul hotel around 9 PM (this was earlier than on a group tour, especially if you happened to be one of the last people dropped off).

至于食物,至少有拥挤的房子之旅,埃杰阿巴德中抵达时,我们在当地餐厅的午餐(这里我们吃了饭与其他旅游团也从拥挤的房子)。它是令人欣慰的填充,因为这是它的食物选择,直到在回来的路上停止伊斯坦布尔那天晚上。

All in all, I had four hours actually touring in Gallipoli.

-Gallipoli is a massive area, you will need to select which areas you want to see

加利波利is remembered with the most reverence by Australians and New Zealanders because it was there that 8,000 of their soldiers (called ANZACS-Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) died and an additional 18,000 were wounded. As such, most visitors to Gallipoli tour the ANZAC areas. However, prior to the first arrival of ANZACS to the Gallipoli Peninsula on April 25, 1915, mainly French and English forces had been battling the Ottomans (Turkey had aligned itself with the Central Powers in World War I) for two months prior.

因此,除了许多ANZAC网站上,您可以访问,你还可以参观英语和法语战斗的地方。

如果你在温暖的月份访问,因此装扮

该加利波利Peninsula is an extremely exposed area, meaning if you’re visiting during the summer, it will be ghastly hot (thankfully more of a dry heat than a muggy one). However, make sure you throw a hat and sunblock in your day pack, because trust me when I say you will need it. Most stopping places in the battlefield area will have zero shade.

访问-加利波利

此外,关于鞋类,是聪明的。你会在很多不平,崎岖地形的行走。女士们,这不是穿上可爱,露趾凉鞋时尚的时候,尤其是当你爬上100年历史的战壕(是的,你确实可以做到这一点)。

日常生活-AT-加利波利

Go with a guide

Although there was adequate signage in English (along of course with Turkish), having a local guide who’s also a historian able to tell you detail after detail of the fighting and key figures will make all the difference. It will make the ground you’re walking on, the trenches you’re standing in, the coastline you’re gazing at, come alive that much more versus reading 100 some words on a sign.

不像在诺曼底,大多数的男人死了were killed in the first invasion wave going ashore, that wasn’t the case at Gallipoli. Although some ANZACS did die trying to get ashore, most died in the brutal days and months ahead when attempting to take strategic ridges and going over the trenches which essentially resulted in a bloodbath almost every time. As such, you are visiting extremely hallowed ground, especially for Australians and New Zealanders who treat Gallipoli as a pilgrimage. Thousands of them descend upon Gallipoli each year on April 25 for ANZAC day. It was after Gallipoli that Australia and New Zealand truly thought of themselves as their own countries, with their own national identities, and no longer as simply subjects of Great Britain.

-ANZAC女孩(based on the lives of real life ANZAC nurses who served on ship hospitals and in Cairo during the Gallipoli campaign)

- 当我们开战(一个来自新西兰的迷你系列,专注于新西兰的第一次世界大战期间的生活,在国内和国外,特别是在加利波利战役,自由与亚马逊)

除了在那里,看到这些单片历史景点,我觉得对我来说是令人印象深刻的主要是澳大利亚和新西兰游客我,是的说话的另一个最难忘的事,我,一个美国人,不仅知道加利波利只不过想访问。对于我的国籍,也没有参与朝圣,而是我对历史的爱和我作为世界公民的地位。

龙 - 松 - 伤亡

Almost all of the graves at Gallipoli feature a range of days for the date of death-that’s how bad the fighting and the immediate aftermath was, that it wasn’t known exactly when someone died.
