Home to one of the Seven Wonders of
the ancient world

As the site of the ancient city of Halikarnassus (and its famous Mausoleum of Halikarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, destroyed in the Middle Ages), Bodrum’s ties to the past are evident everywhere.

There’s the Bodrum Amphitheater that dates back to 4th century BC and Myndos Gate, where Alexander the Great staged one of his greatest battles during his siege of the city. There’s also the Castle of St. Peter, one of the best-preserved medieval monuments in the world and home to the outstanding Museum of Underwater Archaeology.

But if you’re looking for modern day pleasures, there’s also great sailing, windsurfing, and diving, plus beachfront bars, restaurants, and nightclubs, and of course, fantastic Turkish food.
