    Humbling
    As an Aussie this place is very humbling. It's discrete, no big signs announcing it but the signage along wall gives a brief outline of the significance. Incredible to think what happened here in 1915. The cliffs opposite are harsh and a clear reminder of why it went belly up. It's a bucket list place for many Kiwis and Australians.

    Great site. No facilities.
    This is a lovely place to visit. What I absolutely have to say, though, is that if you are not part of an organised tour that you have to be aware that there are no places to buy water and there is no public transport. We nearly got caught out during this summer's sun and hitched a lift out of there. Otherwise it might have been a different situation. Sorry just to talk about logisitics at this site, when there is so much more to say. But please be warned if you are an independent traveller.

    Overwhelming and incredible
    After hearing so much of the history of this location and what happened in 1915, it was an extremely overwhelming and emotional experience but also incredible to visit and reflect. Bless the souls of those who sacrificed their lives. I now understand why Australians flock here on Anzac Day to attend services honouring the lost souls.

    Time has lent this place peace, but memories of the horrors of war persist.
    One of the world's few genuine visionaries Turkish President Kemal Atatürk's words resonate so beautifully and healingly on the monument. An inspired man. A peaceful place now, but ghosts wander and cry. The world is yet to learn, truly collaborate and prosper. A beautiful place.

    Amazing to see in person.
    A bucket list place to learn more about family who served during the war. My great uncle was never found but his name appears at lone pine. My grandfather came here to fight for his family and returned a broken man. It is however refreshing to hear how the Turkish people admire the Australian soldiers.

    ANZAC Cove in person
    Today was a real bucket list item, visiting Gallipoli, Anzac cove and Lone Pine. Staying at canakkale town, a ferry trip and private group bus stopping at all places of interest. An emotional moment, red poppies growing wild along the roadside making it surreal and remains of the trenches still evident. Monuments paying respect to all

This is one of the main places to visit in the Gallipoli area and it gives some insight into the battles that took place there. I had little knowledge of the World War 1 battles and the reason that the Allies were trying to control the seas here.

In the end it was a futile expedition with many lives lost and no gain made. Eventually the Allies withdrew.

Particularly moving is the message from Ataturk to the foreign fallen soldiers.

I came here with a tour arranged by Viator.It was well done by them.Though coming by coach from Istanbul is not ideal, involving an 8 hour round trip.Leaving my hotel at 645am I was exhausted by 2pm.It was an interesting trip notwithstanding.

Such a beautiful place and yet so much tragedy. Its history is told on the line of wall placards at Anzac Cove. On 4/25/1915, Allied troops landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula. The strategy was to force the Ottoman Empire out of the war, take control of the Suez Canal, Bosphorus Strait and Dardanelles Strait, allow Allied war supplies to pass through to Russia ports in the Black Sea. Eight months of fighting and quarter million casualties later, the invasion was withdrawn. It was an awakening moment in the Ottoman Empire. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, a commander at Gallipoli, fought for Turkish Independence eight years later to establish the Republic of Türkiye, and later became the first President.

Lovely stretch of Dardanelles but sadly it was the graveyard of many soldiers. Even a beautiful hill but that was the hiding place of the enemy soldiers. Good display of info on the ‘promenade’.

Gallipoli/Gelibolu is such a remote and beautiful spot for one so significance in Australian and New Zealand history, myth-making and national awakening – the well-spring of the ANZAC legend. When you see the vantage points the Turkish soldiers held on the high ridges (such as the Nek), able to pick off the advancing troops on the beach at will, the military failure of Gallipoli is easy to comprehend. Many points of interest to explore on the battlefield such as the trenches of both the Turks and the ANZACS. Interestingly the Gallipoli Campaign is known in Turkey as the Çanakkale Wars.
