The special thing about Bodrum is that it offers endless choices. Both an ancient city with archaeological remains at every turn and a thriving modern town with a marina, great shops and every modern amenity.
Among the most important sites are the remains of the Mausoleum, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world and the amphitheatre, clearly visible on the hill above the town which is still used for performances. The town itself is dominated by the massive Bodrum Castle which houses the Museum of Underwater Archaeology. the first of it’s kind in the world, which displays finds from shipwrecks around the Aegean.

The Bodrum Marina is situated close to the centre and is an ideal base for those wishing to sail the Aegean. It has all the amenities you would expect in a modern marina including restaurants and shops.
The nightlife is great all summer with every kind of music from rave to jazz. Every evening Bar Street Comes alive with promenaders and party animals. The shops stay open into the early hours creating a real buzz in the town centre. However, long mellow evenings in seaside fish restaurants are equally possible away from the centre.
