Bodrum Travel Information
- One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus houses the remains of King Mausolos from centuries ago. When earthquakes ravaged the site in the 1500s, the materials were used to construct the nearby Saint Peter’s Castle. Since it’s such a small site now, sightseers booking flights to Bodrum normally pair the two attractions to get the full historical experience.
- As soon as you’re done seeing the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, head straight to Saint Peter’s Castle to see how the materials have come to fruition. The combination of ancient and modern collaboration make this site a must-see; whether you’re viewing it from land or from sea, anyone boarding flights to Bodrum will certainly be able to appreciate the 30,000 square feet of medieval architecture that took so many years to complete. Representing both the ascent of the Ottoman Empire, and the unity of Christian Europe, the castle stands today as both a historical and architectural monument.
- They don’t call it the carpet capital of Turkey for nothing. In Milas, wander along the pathways where hundreds of artisans gather to weave together their brightly colored, geometric prayer rugs. Each one is hand-woven and carefully completed with attention to detail, and since you’ll witness the makers at work, you’re sure to get a product that has authentic style and vibrant hues. If you do purchase a carpet, make sure to arrange baggage room for your return Bodrum flight.
