Bodrum

Visit Bodrum

Introduction

Many visitors to Bodrum today are surprised to find that among the modern boulevards of this luxurious city lays one of the seven ancient wonders of the world, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus. The ancient rubble fields that cover the site today are all that remain of this majestic structure, which in its heyday stood as a 45m tall symbol of ancient Greek power.

Today the city's most impressive structure is Bodrum Castle, dating from the 15th century, this monument looks out over one of the busiest resorts on the Aegean. The effervescent charm of Bodrum means that it's a city that continues to attract a high profile crowd. In his heyday Mick Jagger could be seen strutting his stuff on the dance floor of Halikarnus, the hottest club in Bodrum.

This is a city that takes five-star luxury to a whole new level. With a marina overflowing with luxury yachts, this is the perfect place to rub shoulders with the a-list, or simply kick back in the lap of luxury. Alternatively for a sense of what Bodrum was like before the arrival of the jet set head to nearby Yalikavak, home to the best weekly market in the region.
