Where then? Well if the post title hasn't given it away then this will...
With some high anticipation I was half expecting the site itself to be a bit of an anticlimax but it was far from that.
True, the remains are less spectacular than some of the sites but given the quality of the "reconstruction" we saw elsewhere this was no bad thing.
The site is huge. And overgrown. But that didn't matter.
We saw red squirrels playing in the trees and tiny tortoises bathing in the hot sun.
Some areas are much tidier - a testament to the destructive archaeology of some of the earliest excavators who were seeking the legendary treasures of Troy.
Troy was indeed fabulously wealthy thanks to it's control of the shipping in the Aegean. If the winds were unfavourable as they often were, ships would have to remain in port at Troy until they were able to proceed - sometimes months. This added to the wealth of the inhabitants.
Troy is actually multiple cities, in fact 9 of them, all piled on top of each other and the archaeology is confusing. Even the pros have to label each layer!
How anyone could say that there is nothing to photograph beats me - this is the ramp into the pre homeric Troy 2.
and of course the inevitable amphitheatre! (Roman, Troy IX)
