Bodrum is located in one of the bays of Mugla province on the west coast of Turkey. At the harbour entrance, you'll can't miss the Castle of the Knights of St. John, the town's emblem. Here you will be able to visit the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology housed within the castle precincts. In the centre, the passages shaded by arbours abound with diverse craft shops and ice-cream caf├ęs where you can sit out and enjoy refreshing citrus fruit sorbets. A few streets away, the archaeological site of the Halicarnassus Mausoleum invites you to experience the old town's past, just as the old theatre does, built on the slopes of the hillside looking out over the bay of Bodrum.,
