Bodrum City — 4 nights

More than a million tourists visit Bodrum City each year, drawn by its sandy beaches and luxury hotels.
Venture out of the city with trips to Altinkum Beach (in Altinkum) and Temple of Apollo (in Didim). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Castle of St. Peter, examine the collection at Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology, enjoy the sand and surf at Bitez Beach, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

For other places to visit, maps, photos, and more tourist information, read our Bodrum City road trip planning website.
