After viewing some other examples at Ephesus and Pamukkale- this amphitheatre is certainly not being cared for as it should. These historical sites are treasures, and need to be maintained as such. Disappointing. Easy to get to by walking up from the marina side of town.

The amphitheater lies beside a busy road. Just take a dolmus and ask it to stop there, walking from the busstop is uphill. The amphitheater itself is exactly like the photos show, but impressive to see and with nice views of the castle. Best of all, it is free, so no reason to not go there. From here you can... More

We had such feelings as if we were among ruins of Antique Greece. This Amphitheater is worth to see. I think it could be referred to the key attraction in the city.

Visiting the amphitheater one very hot day last year was an almost surreal experience. The atmosphere was quite strange because of the acoustics of the place. It's a marvelously well-preserved relic of a bygone era. Very nice place to walk to to get away from the hubbub of the markets.

Brilliant, my husband was so thrilled to see ancient history just there to see. It was easy to get to and being at the end of the season meant no crowds and we were free to wonder about.

It's an amazing place with an amazing view to Halicarnassus and for one wonderful blue sea. I have been there in the ending of spring and was very hot and the city spirit is very nice. The mix between the ancient and the new is stunning. The Bodrum Amphitheater is very well preserved and continues to receive shows as in... More

Located at the main road from bodrum to turgutreis. Protected area. Not very tourist friendly. We just took a picture standing behind the barricades and turned our backs to enjoy the lovely views on bodrum town and bay.

We caught the Dolmus to the Amphitheater and were the only ones there. The site has been partially restored and affords great views of Bodrum and the sea. It is also a sun trap, and in quiet periods full of varied types of lizard. We were able to take a number of photos of different lizards as well as capturing... More
