Where to stay

You're likely to start at the vibrant metropolis of Istanbul. After that, you can choose your base. Quiet, friendly Eceabat? Or bustling, cultured Çanakkale?



Eceabat is a pleasant, quiet town, and most travellers who stay here do so solely to make it their base while they explore Gallipoli – especially if they want to avoid the frenetic pace of Çanakkale.

Hotels, restaurants, ATMs, public phones, the post office, bus offices and taxi stands are clustered around the main square. This is also where the ferry docks.

Ferries cross the Dardanelles between Eceabat and Çanakkale approximately every hour.
The tourist office is open from 8am to 5pm, but note that very little English is spoken.


  • 1 Eceabat Visitor Centre
    The visitor centre is located about 2kms north of Eceabat and features a model of the Gallipoli peninsula as well as photos and maps relating to the Gallipoli campaign.
