Ancient Theatre in Bodrum

Correction: wrong use of the word "Amphitheater" . When the seating area is half-circle or horse-shoe shaped form, it is called theatre. When it has circular or oval shaped form it is amphitheater.
The ancient theatre in Bodrum is one of the major archaeological sites to visit. Built by satrap Mausolos in the 4th century, this great monument of antiquity holds a special places among the ancient theaters of Turkey, because of its age and its form. While visiting the theater, visitors have a breathtaking panoramic view of Bodrum and nearby islands.The theatre, which has a horse shoe-shaped plan and 13.000 people seating capacity, was built on a hillside following the ancient Hellenic tradition. When satrap Mausolos moved the capital from Mylasa to Halicarnassus, he built this nature oriented theatre with a wonderful view of the Mausoleum, the agora, secret harbor and the palace of Mausolos, situated on the Zephrya island.

Basically, as far as I know, you cannot access this site..... . . . . To be honest, I have not tried to gain access, because I walk past it nearly every day!!!
It is on the main road as you drive through Bodrum!!!
.
Looks good, and you can take pictures, but access, I am not too sure.

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 the other hand from the top rows at the back, you get a great view of Bodrum and the castle.

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.
