Amazing for ancient ruin lovers

Its a couple of miles out of town up a mountain, stunning views, with an interesting museum near the actual site of the original Hippocratic health centre. Open 9-3pm.

Good place to go for an hour or so. Obviously from an historical point of view it was fascinating especially as my daughter was doing the subject in GCSE. Lots of steps up but views stunning. Well worth it.

Visited with friends last July, found it to be well worth the visit for the history and the amazing views from the top. Very quite with not many tourists as it was late in the day, would advise to go at this time as earlier were told can be busy. Would recommend for a visit

A very nice place to learn the history of medicine, beautiful archeological ruins to see but they could take care of the place a bit more!

Jump on the mini train which takes you through the town to this ancient site. If you can't face the steps there is a sloped pathway up. You need to go to the top to appreciate the fantastic views and calm silence.

I visited the Asklepion 20+ years ago. The visit to Kos and Bodrum, Turkey, helped shape my life. The ancient monuments in both nations put my life into perspective. The Asklepion is a beautiful site. The ruins are extensive; the original facility must have been enormous. When I was there in summer, the heat was almost unbearable. Keep that in... More
