This is on the side of the road, it was the most efficient archaeological site we saw, we drove to it looked through the fence (it was locked) it was great to see, I would've been nicer to get inside, but we saw enough really, all in all it took five minutes. I enjoyed it.

The Amphitheatre is located just out of the town a few minutes walk from the Mausoleum. The good news is that is it free but be aware that you need to cross a very busy dual carriageway .

We did not go in. In fact came across this when trying to find mausoleum. A good surprise as we did not know about it before hand. If you like history and walking can do mausoleum then walk up the hill to here. Back down to the bottom of the hill near bodrum marina. Up to the windmills then myndos... More

The amphitheatre is near the Gumbet area of Bodrum which in itself is a happening place and has its own bar street and restaurants(nightlife) going till early morning. The amphitheatre is an old historic place well preserved. Its a must see when in Bodrum.

Saw this amazing place from the boat coming over from Kos. Not so easy when your close up to it. A free attraction with gear views. Must have been spectacular in its day.

We stopped here a couple of times on the way to and from Gumbet to Bodrum. The view is amazing and it's nice to learn that after all these hundreds of years the theatre is still being used for concerts. Great place for photos on both sides of the road.
