Bus to Istanbul

by smitbet Online Now Feb 25, 2008 at 5:00 PM

Hi!
After crossing the sea of Marmara by kayak this fall I will pass Canakkale before my final day to the lighthouse at Kum Burnu near the ruins of Achilleion. My problem is how to get back to Istanbul. I know there is a plane from Canakkale but is there a bus or train? Is there some kind of transportation from somewhere near the lighthouse to Canakkale?
Thanks

    There are daily buses to Istanbul from Canakkale. Turkey has excellent bus service. While you're in Canakkale be sure to visit Truva (Ancient Troy).

    You shouldn't worry about it, there are many buses from Çanakkale to Istanbul every day.

    I can see by your replies that Canakkale to Istanbul is not a problem. The problem is from the lighthouse(channel marker) near Sehitlik to Canakkale. My guess is there is probably a tour bus that takes in Troy and other ruins including Achilleion that I could at least hitch a one way ride on. Any other ideas?
    Thanks again!
