the second best sight in Bodrum

Now a four lane dual carriageway way runs past it's front door, but if you climb to the top level of seats you get a great view over the bay.

Too close to the main road, but it's worth visiting as there is a beautiful view of Bodrum from that point.

Go there when there is a great concert going on. Spend your money for the unique experience that you will have. Do not forget that there is no alcohol served and smoking is not allowed as the amphitheater site should be saved from those materials. So, if you want a tipsy kind of concert-listening, have your drinks beforehand. And a... More

The amphitheater is just outside the main street, which does not let you imagine yourself in ancient times. It is quite well preserved and can be interesting to visit, unless you have something better to do at the time.

We stopped by the Amphitheater on our day trip in Bodrum. It really is stunning and well worth a nosey on your way round the city. A lot of tours don't actually stop to let you get off and have a walk round but it's stunning all the same.

Worth a visit but not a lot to see. Walk from the town to the amphitheater takes you past a number of other sites on the way. Good views from the road side and top of amphitheater. If you are quite you will surprise the largish lizards that live in the cracks between the blocks of stone.

Being in Bodrum, no point doing a trip. So we wandered there from our hotel. We walked the two way highway, easy to work out where it was you can see it in the day from many places in Bodrum. Free entry, really strange, very few signs, no booklet, but a spectacular relic and the view over Bodrum from here... More

As you travel around Turkey you see many ruins such as this one. Comparing to others, this is not one of the more spectacular. But it is large and quite amazing to think of the construction work.
