gallipoli-cemetryThe year 2015 marks the centenary of the Battle of Gallipoli with the area around the Gallipoli peninsula (Gelibolu) holding special significance for Turkey, UK, New Zealand and Australia. Thus its inclusion as a must-see for next year in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2015 is extremely timely.

Visitors to the region can tour Gallipoli's former battlefields, explore Anzac Cove and the Ariburnu Cemetery, as well as attending the Anzac Day event that takes place on 25 April each year to commemorate the Gallipoli campaign.
