Bodrum Amphitheater, Bodrum City

(2.8/5 based on 400+ 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 love ancient ruins and was delighted to see how this wonderful Greek theatre (it's not an amphitheatre) has been restored. What an experience it must have been for spectators to site on that hillsid...  more »
