Bodrum, and it is one of the best preserved structures of ancient Halikarnassus. Originally, it was built around 4th C BC during the reign of King Mausolos, in 2nd C AD, during the Roman period, it was enlarged and enriched. The Bodrum Amphitheatre lies on the road to Gumbet and is used for concerts and shows during the high season, and is also used as part of the September Festival. It is well preserved and definitely worth a visit.

The Bodrum Amphitheatre is a 4th-century BC structure in Bodrum. It’s accredited to the reign of King Mausolus, although it wasn’t fully completed until the Roman era. The theatre is one of the best preserved structures of ancient Halikarnassus, and with rock tombs above, the site provides an unequalled view of the city. The Bodrum Amphitheatre lies on the main road through the Peninsula, and is used for concerts and shows during the high season. If you are in Bodrum when there is a concert in the Amphitheatre you should definitely go and buy a ticket.

Very nice open air theatre offering a great view to the sea. Almost every evening there is a stage play, but everything is booked in advance. :(
