The only thing better than Bodrum Castle's architecture is its Aegean views.
Welcome to 15th-century Bodrum Castle, where the only thing more impressive than the medieval lookout towers are the views of the sparkling sea you enjoy from atop. Follow up your survey of the fortress by descending into the Museum of Underwater Archaeology, which provides an overview of shipwrecks just offshore and a collection of glass artifacts found in them.
Take a trip way back in time with a stroll through Halicarnassus Citadel.
Head even further back in time when you set foot on the cobbled streets of Halicarnassus Citadel. Imagine yourself at a Greek performance in 350 B.C. when you climb up to the top of the site's intact amphitheater. Or, pay your respects at the sprawling mausoleum, where the local Anatolians who ruled present-day Bodrum on behalf of Greek imperial overlords are interred.
Step into postcard-perfect scenery as your toes sink into the sun-warmed sands of Bodrum Beach. Take a dip in the still, crystalline waters lapping at the shore, or rent an umbrella or two, slather on the sunscreen and relax like never before. Order a shot of Raki, a distinctive local spirit that tastes like licorice, or order a milder Efes beer and say "cheers" to your beautiful day in Bodrum.
When you work up an appetite, make your way to Milta Bodrum Marina, where you can enjoy views of majestic yachts reflecting in the water as you dine on fresh seafood and grilled meats. Choose locally caught izgara ahtapot (grilled octopus) served simply with a drizzle of olive oil and a wedge of lemon, or select a platter of grilled meats, kebabs and mezze appetizers for a more pan-Turkish culinary celebration.
The main challenge of shopping at picturesque Bodrum Market? Getting out from behind the lens of your camera long enough to actually buy something! Traipse past colorful stalls, browse typical Turkish keepsakes, like colorful mosaic lamps and mysterious Nazar Boncuk evil eyes, or shop for products made with locally produced olives, including soaps and extra-virgin oils.
