Bodrum Amphitheater, Bodrum City
(2.8/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
At Bodrum Amphitheater, see one of the remaining structures from the ancient Greek city of Halikarnassus and get a glimpse into Bodrum's once great past. The well-preserved theater dates back to the reign of King Mausolos in the 4th century BCE. Walk through all three parts of the traditional theater: the skene, the orchestra, and the cavea. Climb up to the higher levels for great views of Bodrum Castle and the sea beyond. The structure serves as a prime example of classical Greek theater, with a capacity of around 13,000. Look closely at the seats: some were inscribed with the names of wealthy donors centuries ago. The theater is still used for concerts and festivals today and mixes the old with new renovations. Come prepared; the area can become a sun trap on hot days, and the hike to the top is fairly steep.

  • I was greatly disappointed views of this historic property, and this is due to the fact that it was not possible to enter the property, because he was a gated NET and simply was not made available for tourists. A great pity that in Turkey monuments from the ancient times are not reconstructed as in Greece.

  • We were in the summer at a concert by Murat Boz in amphitheatre and loved us. The concert, as well as the local.
