We paid a nice visit at this little greek ancient theater and we learned that the term "amphitheater" is a missnomer according to the local guide. He meant that the word "amphitheater" applies only to theaters with rounded circle formations.

The amphitheater was well preserved and has a very nice vantage point of the surrounding area. Its was free to visit, and you are able to climb around and enjoy it. It is a bit of a hike up the hill to get there though.

Went here to see a great show. Great acoustics and great views. Too bad about the road, but it is ok. Before the show it was nice to wander around and take in the views.

Amazing acoustics, shame about the dual carriageway right in front of it. The amphitheatre was really stunning to look at, but the highway kinda ruined it

I would say it is on the main road so if you trun your had when you are passing near by you may see it. But dont make it so short . Just climb, sit down and feel yourself in old days. Even if you dont have an ability to sing, you may fel that you would like to sing... More

Totally unspoilt and uncommercialised, the amphitheatre is huge and has amazing views of Bodrum, and free entry! On the main dual carriageway road so take care when crossing. Definitely a must see.

This amphitheater is a small site easily visited in 30 minutes and has an excellent view of Bodrum so it's worth a trip up from the city to see this. It's an good shape too so its a nice visit.

The amphitheater was Hugh and impressive. The views were magnificent. It was about a 25 minute walk from our hotel and we had to cross a 4 lane highway to get there.
