The ruins are in a better shape then expected. There aren't many people there usually so you can take pictures of it in detail. There are also free maps of the area at the entrance, and some pieces of history on the panels at the entrance. It's a nice place to visit if you are in Bodrum, much better up... More

We arrived at the museum only to be told they close for lunch, so we went to the castle then onto the museum. It was interesting but not fantastic.

The entrance looks like a very ordinary Bodrum street,but once in you will like it very much and find the riuns of the ancient city of Halicarnassus.It's worth spending few hours.

It looks like they are trying to rennovate this amphitheatre. For now, if you've seen other amphitheatres, this one is not particularly impressive and crossing a busy road to get to it when it has building site equipment on it isn't a great way to spend time. Having said that, you do get a nice view of the town from... More

Impressive to look at, but there are other more impressive amphitheaters around turkey that are much more worthwhile looking around, such as the Ephesus archaeological site in Pamukkale.

It's a nice amphitheatre, it's worth visiting for the view that you will have over St Peter castle and the Harbour. There are a lot of concerts and dfferent events there. There is no fee and it's at midway on the way from Bodrum to Gumbet.

Ok visit during your Bodrum stay. Nothing special if you have visited other ones in the past. If you have more time take a drive to Efes instead, which is really great.
