Not a special ampitheatre but definitely worth visiting

Other ampitheatres are grander and more beautiful, but they've done a very good restoration job and it's an easy walk and reminder of the history of Bodrum

Yo can't miss to visit the Amphitheater who is still in a very good condition, you see this theater from the Higtway.

This is too close to a busy road, trying to craft a review of 100 words is impossible without adding a lexicon of nonsense.

This is just off the highway and if you do stop here to have a look, what you see in person is not very different from what you might gather from the glance you give it while driving by. Avoidable

Unfortunately, the amphitheater was closed the day we were there. It sits immediately off a busy highway. Nice, but can't touch the Ephesus amphitheater.

This attraction is right by the road and is worth a pull-over. Many events are held here so consult the tourist information office.

Pretty cool. Was completely deserted when we visited in Sept 2015, had the place to ourselves. A healthy (but fun) walk up hill from the port. Get the tourist map at the tourist office (near the Castle), and take the "Blue Tour", a self-guided walk. It takes you by the Mausoleum (near here), and a couple other places. The amphitheater...

Stopped off here on a day trip to Bodrum from Kos. Only had a few minutes here to take photos, would have liked to stay longer and climb to the top. Wasn't busy when we were here late September. Was great just wondering around as nothing is fenced off. Definitely worth a visit if your in Bodrum.
