Ancient Theater (Antik Tiyatro) Review

Consruction of the magnificent, 5,000-seat ancient theater began during the 4th century BC reign of King Mausolus, back when Bodrum was known as Halicarnassus of Caria. The Hellenistic theater was used and updated through the Roman era, and remains one of the ancient city's best-preserved monuments; it is still used for concerts and other performances. The view of Bodrum and the Aegean sea is breathaking from this high, hillside vantage point.

    Bodrum Amphitheater Review

    Visiting this Amphiteatre allows you to experience what it must have been like in ancient times to watch a show or production here, with the backdrop of the Aegean in the background. There are great sweeping views of the Bay and Bodrum Castle. It's a great perspective to view this town.
