Top 5 Reasons to Visit Bodrum

Bodrum offers a captivating mix of attractions, from its castle and ancient ruins to whitewashed houses with vibrant blue trim. Whatever you choose for a holiday here, Bodrum promises an exciting adventure!

The most captivating area of town is where narrow pedestrian alleyways are lined with vine-draped, whitewashed and stone-cut cottages that look as though they were taken straight from a postcard. Here you’ll find all of the best local shops, cafes and restaurants.

Take a Segway tour for an enjoyable way to get around town. Not only will they provide you with guidance and short training, but also protective gear as part of the package price. Hire them locally or from town for this great experience!

Discover the captivating ruins of Pedasa and take a visit to the Museum of Underwater Archaeology for an unforgettable adventure.

If you’re a history buff on vacation, make time for an excursion at one or two ancient sites near Bodrum. Pedasa’s ruins boast some of Turkey’s most captivating archaeology and its relatively low volume of visitors means you’ll get to explore this site with greater intimacy than visiting more well-known ancient cities in Europe.

Visit the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus

King Mausolus’ mausoleum, located in Caria around 350 BC, is a must-visit for anyone interested in ancient culture. As an UNESCO World Heritage Site, visitors can get an insightful look into its fascinating ancient past at this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
