Bodrum to Gocek
A pleasant little town, Bodrum has acquired something of a Bohemian reputation from the time when dissident artists and writers were exiled there in the early twentieth century. In a lovely setting, it has become a popular tourists resort over the past few years. The imposing crusader castle in the bay, built by the Knights of St. John, is home to the best underwater archaeological museum in the Mediterranean, and is well worth a visit. Among the artifacts on display are finds from what is thought to be the earliest known shipwreck dating from the Bronze Age.

Knidos is an ancient settlement located in south-western Asia Minor, modern-day Turkey. It was an ancient Greek city of Caria, part of the Dorian Hexapolis. It was situated on the Datca peninsula, which forms the southern side of the Sinus Ceramicus, now known as Gulf of Gokova. By the 4th century BC, Knidos was located at the site of modern Tekir, opposite Triopion Island. But earlier, it was probably at the site of modern Datca (at the half-way point of the peninsula).
