The amphitheatre (antik tiyatro) is a nice place to visit when in Bodrum. It's a 10-15 minute walk from the harbour and only 5 minutes from the mausoleum (up a steep hill). The amphitheatre was free to visit and appeared to be open until 5pm...More

If you have spent any time in Greece or Turkey you have done your share of amphitheaters. This isn't the best of them, it's quite big but the busy road just next to the theatre takes away a fair bit from the ambience. But on...More

Amazing example of a ancient building. It sits just by the main road through Bodrum. In excellent condition for its age! Acoustics wonderful.

You stop at the side of the road in order to walk in. Its amazing when you realise how old it is and lovely that it is still used today for concerts. We were able to walk around and take photos.
