Gallipoli Art, War and Wine

8 Days of Istanbul, Nature, Gallipoli, Art and Wine.

19th to 26th May 2018

Over a hundred years ago a battle raged along the shores of the Aegean Sea. As wars have raged here for millenia. But as men and weapons come to wreak havoc on each other there is always a winner and itís neither sideÖÖ itís nature. The Gallipoli battlefield is one of the most isolated and interesting WW1 battlefields in the world. Most of it remains as part of a national park. A place of natural beauty that witnessed the sorrow and carnage of man-made war. Whether it was Achilles, Agamemnon, Mustafa Kemal or Ian Hamilton, they all came and went

In the 21st century nature is winning the warÖ.. slowly it is reclaiming this place. Somehow this natural peace and quiet makes the cemeteries a much more serene place. A place that lends itself to the hands of an artist, or the artist inside us all.

This 8 day tour will take you through the ancient streets of one of histories most famous cities and then onto the Gallipoli Peninsula. Weíll visit the cemeteries and memorials, weíll meet some of the colourful locals, and if you feel like it, you can paint the landscapes and vistas from the beaches, the heights, the gullies and the trenches in the footsteps of those who came before.

Weíll meet our colorful historian/artist ĎRoachieí, who will fill us in on the history of the campaign as well as the best place to sit and paint, or sample some great local wine. You donít need to be an artist, or even a budding artist, you can just come along for the spectacular journey.

This is the first of a series of Ďart inspiredí collaborations between Craig Roach (Roachie) and Experta Tours and Events. It not only combines the historical in-depth information on the Gallipoli Campaign but also the time and opportunity to soak up the natural beauty of this place.
