    Bodrum Harbour
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    While your ship is docked in Bodrum, meet your private guide at the cruise port and settle into your private, air-conditioned minivan. Then, make the short drive to the first stop of your shore excursion, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, and get an introduction to Bodrum’s long and illustrious history from your knowledgeable guide. When you arrive, explore the Mausoleum site as your guide explains the ruins around you. Built in around 351 BC in Halicarnassus — the ancient city that once stood where Bodrum now stands — the Mausoleum housed the tomb of King Mausolus, the ruler of the Persian kingdom of Caria. When it stood, this magnificent temple probably measured around 164 foot (50m) high and was adorned with elaborate columns and statues: a beauty that saw it classed as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Wander around the relics, and hear how the Mausoleum was destroyed by an earthquake in 1304 AD before being looted by the Knights of St John in the 16th century. Next, drive to another of Bodrum’s historical treasures — the ancient Bodrum Amphitheater. Carved into a hillside above the city, this 13,000-seater structure was built during the King Mausolus-era and updated by the Romans in the 2nd century AD. Soak up the stunning views over Bodrum from the steeply tiered rows of seats, and discover how some of the seats are still inscribed with the names of the patrons who paid for them centuries ago. Afterward, drive back to Bodrum port, where your tour comes to an end. Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return to the Bodrum port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.
