A holiday to Bodrum with Mark Warner whisks you away to this attractive port city on the southern coast of the Bodrum peninsula, in the Aegean region of Turkey. It once housed one of the Seven Wonders of The Ancient World – the Mausoleum of Mausolus – but today only a few pieces remain. This coastal city is perfect for a family holiday thanks to its blend of the traditional and comforts of modern life. The hills are lined with rows of white sugar-cube houses and palm-lined streets which give the city an original charm. Bodrum castle, built in the 15th century by crusaders, has impressive medieval architecture in excellent condition and now houses an important underwater archaeology museum. Bodrum has a plethora of activities for you to enjoy such as a variety of beautiful trails for those who like hiking, taking you past spectacular landscapes and ancient wonders as well as scuba diving for those keen to explore local marine life.
