This is a daily tour to Bodrum Castle (Halicarnassus), Iasos and Euromos. 

We start collecting our group at 08:00 am and leave Didim. After 45 minutes we will arrive at Euromos first. The Zeus Temple is the main highlight of the site. Having been preserved perfectly, the size and the beauty of temple will overwhelm you. After spending some time for photos and to appreciate what is here we will then drive to Iasos. 

This antic site was one of the first colonized place at the Aegean coast of Turkey. It is believed that Iasos was the second biggest city after Miletus which concretes its importance during antiquity. Having not been mentioned in the archaeological platforms as much as Miletus, it is a hidden treasure of the Aegean coast. 

The ruins are well worth a visit and the view of the sea from here is something that should be captured with your photos and maybe a 'selfie' or two! Afterwards we will head to Bodrum. On arrival we will have one-hour to enjoy some free time for lunch. And then we will gather at the agreed meeting point and drive to Bodrum Castle. 

The magnificent Bodrum Castle is the main highlight of this tour. Therefore; get ready to dive into thousands years of history of Romans, Byzantium, Crusaders, Seljuk and finally Ottoman Empires. This enormous castle contains many rooms and halls full of relics and of course the unique UNDERWATER ARCHAEOLOGY MUSEUM, that gives you a priceless opportunity to understand maritime history. 

As the name may suggest, the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology is a museum which exhibits anything which is related to underwater archaeology. With fourteen departments within the museum, it has grown in size substantially and is regarded one of the most interesting museums in the world!!
Unsurprisingly, the castle itself basks in history. There were times when it was used as a prison, although up until the 1950's it wasn’t anything like the tourist attraction its providing to be today. It wasn’t until 1962 when the underwater archaeology as we know it came about. This was the period when Turkish Government decided to turn the castle into a museum for shipwrecks. In doing so the Turkish Government created the biggest museum in the world like this.

Overtime the museum has made some startling landmarks. For example; if you take to the gardens inside the castle you will set eyes on almost every plant and tree that the Mediterranean has to offer. Then, if you turn to the ancient glass of collection, this is in the four biggest of the world. Another historic important note that occurred in 1995 was with the museum winning the prestigious award of European Museum of the year. After experiencing a fantastic day out we will depart from Bodrum around 18:00pm and expect to be back in Didim around 20:20pm and return you to your accommodation.
