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.

If your in turkey likelihood is your going to see some great amphitheatres..... Ephesus, pamukkale etc.... This one was a bit run down. There was construction fencing around it but nothing going on. There was a pay booth there but no one present. It's a decent walk from the harbour up to the amphitheatre so you need to have a... More

The Bodrum Amphtheater was on our way to Ephesus, Selcuk, İzmir. It does not take a long time to see it. You will get the experience of acoustics of the theatre. If you have not any chance to see one like that in your like please do it.

Amazing place, so much to see, can steep yourself in the history of this place without even realising it! Loads of kids when we visited but all seemed happy to be there

The amphitheatre at Bodrum is a good example of a Greek/Roman theatre. Originally built in the 4th Century BY and then updated by the Romans in the 2nd Century AD it is still in use today. The biggest problem for the casual visitor is that it is right on the main road from Gumtree to Bodrum, so in a stream... More

The Bodrum Amphitheater was on our way to a tour of the city of Bodrum so our guide took us there for a brief stop. It was worth seeing once and it didn’t take much because as far as I know that’s all you see in the picture. The guide told us that in the past, most of the stones... More

We were able to walk here from our hotel. It's easy to miss,it's by the side of a busy road. You can pull over on a small area to view if driving If you walk in,the chap in the cabin doesn't charge to get in. Just a 10 minute look around

Take any Dolmus heading for Gumbet, Akilye or Turgutreis and ask to be let off at the Amphitheatre. Closed on Mondays. Worth a visit!

This Is one of a hundred similar amphitheaters build all over the Mediterranean area and this one is pretty average, nothing special. If you have never seen an ancient amphitheater this one may be worth seeing but if you have seen other ones I wouldn't waste my time here.
