Bodrum Amphitheater Tours
Read MoreShow Less
One of the most important and best-preserved remains of the ancient city of Halicarnassus, the Bodrum Amphitheater boasts a dramatic location, carved into the hillside above the city of Bodrum. Originally constructed in the fourth century B.C. during the reign of King Mausolus, the grand, open-air venue wasn’t fully completed until the Roman era, with structural changes that were made for hundreds of years up until the second century A.D.
The 13,000-seat amphitheater is one of the oldest in Anatolia, and thanks to careful restoration, it remains in use, hosting concerts and theatrical performances during the summer months. The atmospheric venue is famed for its remarkable acoustics and magnificent panoramic views of the modern-day city of Bodrum, neighboring Gumbet and the surrounding Bodrum peninsula.
The Bodrum Amphitheater lies on Kibris Sehitler Cad, on the road to Gumbet. It is open Tuesday through Sunday from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. It’s possible to reach the amphitheater on foot (a 40-minute uphill walk from Bodrum Harbor) or by dolmuslar (mini-buses) heading to Gumbet, Akilye or Turgutreis.
