Bozcaada, also known by its former Greek name Tenedos, is a small island in the Aegean Sea. The port appears in Homer’s Illiad, in which the island is named as the home of the Greek fleet during the legendary Trojan War.

The island sits at a strategic position at the mouth of the Dardanelles Strait, and has been occupied by many different civilisations including the Greeks, Persians, Romans, Byzantines and others. Today, traces of these civilisations can be found across Bozcaada. Guests to the island can visit the historical sites before taking in the wonderful beaches, delicious cuisine and famous vineyards.
