Although you are able to access the amphitheatre for free, the surrounding motorway and hoards of tourists kind of ruin the atmosphere of this historic site. I went with a city tour and managed to get a few photos before everyone congregated in the theatre from another two busses. The view of the bay is pretty nice, but the fencing... More

As archeological spots go, this is a big disappointment. The Bodrum Amphiteater is an ancient place but is located just off a main drag making it seem more like a shopping mall than a ruin. The sight is temporarily fenced so you can view it from the street but cannot go into the Amphiteater itself. If you are in the... More

I loved it so much, it was a great experience, there is a lot to learn and if you love history I would highly recommend a bodrum city tour and this is one of stops.

On the other hand, the views over Bodrum are very good, and it's an easy and pleasant walk ( though uphill!)

Nice to see a part of Turkish history, we took this in when we hit Bodrum city for shopping and sight seeing, great for taking some photo and just to sit and relax on the steps.
