Things to do
-Historic ruins: Among the most sought-after historical sites in the world is found within the boundaries of Bodrum; the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus. What remains of the mausoleum designed as a tomb and monument for the great King Mausolus by his wife and sister is mostly just the foundation after a great earthquake destroyed most of the structure. Nevertheless, this is listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
-Other landmarks: Bodrum is home to one of the grandest amphitheatres of the ancient world as well. This theatre had a capacity to hold upwards of ten thousand spectators and is found on the road to the town of Gumbet. The Bodrum landscape is also dotted with white windmills made of stone and wood which were used by past inhabitants to grind flour. Also surviving are the old city gates which were the scene of the bloodiest battles that happened when Alexander the Great besieged the city.
