Ancient History and Azure Waters of Bodrum

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from €93,74 EUR / Adult
Discover the depths of Bodrum’s history and explore its turquoise waters on this daylong adventure. It begins at the Castle of St. Peter, built in the 15th century using materials from the Mausoleum, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Today the castle is a stunning museum, its great halls filled with artifacts chronicling Turkey’s Bronze Age, Roman era and Byzantine times. Enter the French Tower to view the supposed remains of Queen Ada, sister of King Mausolos. Explore a chamber once used to store booty, now housing the Museum of Underwater Archaeology and a late Roman shipwreck. Then, the adventure continues with a voyage into Bodrum’s pristine cruising grounds. Motor past hidden coves and secluded bays en route to a perfect stretch of beach. Relax on the soft sand or wade into the inviting waters for an afternoon swim. Enjoy lunch onboard the boat.
