Bodrum Information About
Mugla is one of the most famous cities of tourism in the Aegean Sea, a small part of which is in the Mediterranean region. Mugla has 13 districts that are at least as well known and the world famous Bodrum District is one of the most beautiful holiday regions in Turkey that you can visit. Called "the land of the eternal blue" by the famous historian Homer, Bodrum has been a place where battles have been fought throughout history. Bodrum, formerly known as Halicarnassus, was consecrated by St. Peter in St. Peter's Basilica, and the name eventually became Bodrum. The Halicarnassus Mausoleum, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, is located in Bodrum. Today only the remains of the monumental tomb have been used to build Bodrum Castle, one of the most beautiful corners of the city. With the world's second largest underwater archaeology museum in Bodrum Castle, it offers a different experience to the world. Bodrum is known as the last Christian country in the history of Anatolia. Much of the city is located on the Bodrum Peninsula and is surrounded by the Aegean Sea. In Bodrum, which is influenced by the Aegean and Mediterranean climates, the summers are warm and dry; the winters are warm and rainy. The best times of the year for your Bodrum flight are spring through summer.
From the airport to the city centre
There is an airport in Bodrum, which is the largest district in Turkey in terms of both the Aegean region and the tourist potential. Airport traffic in Bodrum is also quite proportional to tourism. Bodrum flight ticket offers are lower in the winter months, so you can take advantage of the Bodrum flight ticket offers in spring and summer. Milas Bodrum Airport, located between the two cities of Milas and Antik Karya, which was in the region in ancient times, was opened to international air traffic in 1997. In 2012, the terminal's capacity for international flights was expanded to a passenger capacity of 5 million passengers per year. Milas Bodrum Airport, 32 km from the city, is on the border of the Milas district. From here you can take city buses to the centre of Mugla city. Some airlines have free bus connections to Bodrum. If your company, from which you bought a Bodrum plane ticket, offers such a service, you should definitely take advantage of it. Another alternative are private airport buses that are adapted to the flights. We encourage you to negotiate if you prefer a taxi to get to Bodrum, which is especially busy with tourists in the summer. If you want to travel with your own vehicle during the holidays, there are both domestic and international car rental companies where you can drop off your vehicle at another point (e.g. Mugla). Using a taxi or a private car will take you to the centre of the district in half an hour.
