“Bodrum Castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

It's a wonderful location right by the water. I recommend going to the very top and looking into the distance to catch a quick glimpse of the Greek island of Kos. This is great for singles, couples or families. I do recommend wearing sneakers or very sturdy shoes because it is a castle and some of the surfaces can be uneven in places. One interesting fact that I learned about the castle is that it was built with bricks from the Mausoleum by the Knights that came during the Crusades. I don't know if this is true, but it is still an interesting tidbit.

“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

I had been to Bodrum on a day trip over from Kos and hadn't had any Turkish Lira to get into the castle (they don't take euros) so whilst in the area on holiday took advantage of a trip to the city to see the castle.
As you would imagine the castle is steeped in history being built during the crusades and the view over the port is amazing.
Make sure that the museums are open because these close for lunch, as it is worth seeing the Roman ship and the other archaeological finds set inside these small rooms within the castle walls. A lovely castle which is well worth a visit .

Entrance is 25 Tl for tourists. Make sure you have exact money, we were short changed and I only realised afterwards. Closed Mondays and most rooms close between 12pm and 1.30pm . Very hot, nice to look around. Exhibits in English and Turkish but not a lot there. Shop is very expensive, buy from shops outside instead.
