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!

Our room which was suit was comfortable. I was staying with 8 of my friends who were all professional people, nearing or retirement age (definitely not what would be referred to as roudy). The other rooms were tiny and the bath rooms tiny (definitely not 4 star). All this would not have led me to write this report. There was... More

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
