Pros; * easy to find. * no entry charge * strong historical site built above the town * well preserved and accessible to all levels (steep climb though) * excellent view from the top areas * with others, you are able to appreciate the design and can be heard quite easily when speaking in a strong (not shouting) voice which...

It doesn't take long to walk in the theater since this is a small attraction, but it is worth to come here. You can walk around in the theater and you could try to sit and imagine how it was back then. You get a good view when you are at the top. Some of the seats in the theater... More

One of Bodrum's prominent landmarks is the ampitheatre, one of the few visible relics of ancient Halicarnassus. Although heavily reconstructed, this is easily accessible from the main highway to the north of Bodrum along the coast and offers superb views across the bay. Interpretation boards are few but this simply allows you to wander and enjoy the ruins. Well worth... More

The Bodrum Amphitheater is a small attraction near by a main road. Despite of that it is a good place to visit. As usual the greek and the romans knew how to build places with great views, and here was not different, you will have a great view of the Bodrum port and of the castle too. You don't have... More

We took a taxi up the hill to see this ancient amphitheatre and were not disappointed. Free entry too. If you are interested in the ancient history of turkey you will not be disappointed although it will not take you long to look around and take a few photos. If you cross the road afterwards you have the most fantastic... More

Close to the town of Bodrum on the Gumbet road. From the top you have wonderful views of Bodrum bay and the castle. It was built in the the 4 century BC during the reign of King Mausolus. It has a modern use as it is now used for concerts.

You can easily find it. There are just ruins of the theater, though the acoustics are nice and you can hear everything loud and clear :)

This is a working ancient site that, when sitting and watching a performance, allows you to step back in time as you see the most amazing vista across Bodrum. Sometimes it is hard to remember that it is an ancient site and as such, the stone seating can prove a little numbing. On performance nights only, security will check your... More

Bit if a trek up the hill from the seafront, but we had the whole place to ourselves. It was a fab place to have our packed lunch and take a few fun pictures. The architecture is amazing, the view of the bay, stunning, the entry price is a bargain - free!
