Bodrum Guide

Located in the Turkish province of Mugla, the city of Bodrum lies on the southernmost coast of the Bodrum Peninsular at a point that checks entry into the Gulf of Gokova. In ancient times the city was known for housing the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and was also called Halicarnassus. Bodrum Castle was built in the 15th century by the Knights Hospitaller and stands proudly over the harbour and marina. The castle's grounds hosts a number of cultural festivals throughout the years and is also home to the Museum of Underwater Archaeology.

A popular spectacle if visiting the city in October or November takes place in nearby Bargilya where the locals can be seen harvesting olives. There is a pretty lagoon there and some lovely fish restaurants.

Bodrum Cruise Port is located 36 km from the Milas International Airport and few minute walk to the city centre. The Port has the capacity to service at least two large cruise vessels at a time together with three motorboats. The port also has three ferryboat ramps. The port has ferries to other nearby Turkish and Greek ports and islands.
