It's an amazing place with an amazing view to Halicarnassus and for one wonderful blue sea. I have been there in the ending of spring and was very hot and the city spirit is very nice. The mix between the ancient and the new is stunning. The Bodrum Amphitheater is very well preserved and continues to receive shows as in... More

Located at the main road from bodrum to turgutreis. Protected area. Not very tourist friendly. We just took a picture standing behind the barricades and turned our backs to enjoy the lovely views on bodrum town and bay.

We caught the Dolmus to the Amphitheater and were the only ones there. The site has been partially restored and affords great views of Bodrum and the sea. It is also a sun trap, and in quiet periods full of varied types of lizard. We were able to take a number of photos of different lizards as well as capturing... More

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.
