How to get there

The Bodrum Amphitheater lies on the D330 Bodrum-Turgutreis highway. The easiest way to reach it is by car, cab, or dolmus (public minibus) from central Bodrum. Parking is available outside. Alternatively, make the 15-minute walk from the harbor up through Bodrum’s Yenikoy district—it’s a steep but scenic walk. Be aware that you’ll need to cross the busy D330.

Things to See Around Bodrum Amphitheater

Take a close look at Bodrum Amphitheater’s front-row seats: some are still inscribed with the names of their long-ago sponsors. Having admired the views from the top tiers, walk downhill back into Bodrum via two of Halicarnassus’ other ancient treasures: the 4th-century Myndos Gate and the crumbled Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, the once-glorious tomb of King Mausolus.
