If your really love history, you should definitely see Asklepion, as the maybe the oldest hospital on the world. There were origins of modern medicine, we know well today. I truly recommend to get there with Theokratis Travel Tigaki with Kostas!

We decided to cycle up to see the Asklepion. Its a Good climb from the roundabout to Platani. We went at 1630 to miss the heat. Lovely pedal. The ruins are great with helpful information panels. You dont need to buy a guide book off the bloke selling them as you come through the gate from the car park. 4... More

One of Kos' greatest attractions and Greece's heritage pearl is not to be overseen. Amazing views, and breathtaking landscape can be experienced here. Best to visit at 9 am when it opens to avoid the heat of the midday sun. Good to do some homework to get background knowledge before you visit, or else its just another ancient ruin with... More

Awe inspiring place! You must visit this 5000 year old site, it just blows your brain. Cost 4 euro's to get in, is just a short journey from Kos town. Guides are about 8 euros, but there is some info inside the area, however the guide is really interesting.

Always enjoy going here you can even see lizards we got the little train it cost 7euros each that includes city tour. The view up there is really nice and you don't need a tour guide as everything is signed very clearly, the train comes back an hour later.

I hired a car; we made our way towards this historic place. It is absolutely fantastic. We don't like tours, so occasionally miss out on 'expert' knowledge, but actually, the information here made sure that we had all the information we needed (the Internet did the rest). The views are amazing; the site itself incredible. The only reason for the... More

Nice archaeological site with view - the birthplace of western medicine. The history and scientific importance of the place alone were enough to impress us. The stones and columns are special as a part of this, not because of their look. Acropolis of Athens may well be more spectacular, but still Asklepion is a must for any Kos visitor. For... More
