The Amphitheatre, built during the reign of King Mausollos, sits on a hillside looking out over Bodrum. As well as giving an insight into the time when it held 13,000 people it also offers views out across the Bodrum harbour and the Castle of Saint Peter with its Underwater Archaeology Museum.
Away from the centre why not take a jeep safari out into the surrounding countryside for a chance to glimpse natural Turkey at its best. Horse riding, walking and trekking are other popular ways of seeing the Turkish landscape first hand.
