Bodrum has a history that goes back to the 12th century B.C. The city was called 'Halicarnassus' and was the birthplace of Herodotus the 'Father of History' who lived here in the 5th century B.C. The Mausoleum of King Mausolus (350 B.C.), which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, is also located in this city. The only structure that has survived from the classical era is the Amphitheatre. It is one of the oldest theatres in Anatolia with a seating capacity of 13, 000 guests and is still hosting many shows and concerts for the art-lovers of Bodrum.
Another place that you should visit when you arrive in Bodrum is the landmark of the city ? the 'Castle of Saint Peter'. It is one of the best preserved pieces of architecture with a history dating back to the Middle Ages. Myndos Gate through which Alexander the Great entered Halicarnassus is another place that you should not miss!

This area was popular and suitable for sponge-diving but nowadays the people of the island are no longer interested in sponge-diving as it is neither financially beneficial nor safe. In recent years sponge-diving has been replaced by gulet tourism.
We will cruise to Rhodes early in the morning. Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands. The island is quite a popular holiday destination as it has one of the best-preserved and the largest European medieval cities and enjoys warm weather for 300 days of the year.

The main port of Rhodes is Rhodes City which bears the same name as the island. Other areas of interest include Lindos and Kamiros.
