Very interresting site and well conserved, especially the disposition of the former greek houses. The explanation leaflet given to the visitors at the entry is really needed to appreciate Kamiros

Very well signposted from the main road and easy to park (and free), even at busy times. At 4 Euros each it is 2 Euros less than many of the other main attractions but very much worth the cost. We went up the right side of the hill but found coming down the left hand side was better as there... More

Kairos is the smallest of Rhodes three ancient cities forming the Rhodian state and on the west of the island, Lindos and Ialysos being the others. It dates back to Mycenaean times and has been carefully and thoughtfully excavated and preserved. It cost €4 for the entrance but is a small price to pay for so much history. It's in... More

If you like history and legends Ancient Kamiros is the place to visit on Rhodes Island. It is not far from Rhodes city and there is a public bus which goes there around noon gives you 2 hours to explore it and returns to Rhodes town every day.

This was described in our guidebook as a great example of an ancient Greek city and therefore warranted a bit of 'mission creep' when we hired a car to go the Lindos. It is on the opposite side of the island but well worth the drive. Things of note are the baths showing the plumbing, the in tact streets of... More

In ancient Kamiros you can imagine how things were in ancient times with the temples and the village. There is a special atmosphere which many people feel. The view is beautiful - we enjoyed this special place a lot and plan to go again.

You will have the opportunity to walk around of lots of houses and city’s marketplace. Don’t forget to go to the acropolis on the... More

Dating from 800 BC, Kamiros (Kameiros) is located about 20 miles (32km) from the cruise ship port of Rhodes Town just off the north coastal road. It is an interesting ancient city although still very much in ruins. From the acropolis at the top of the hill, you can look down the main street going down a little valley towards... More

The site is well preserved with all the ruins accessible to walk on and around (I wonder how long they will last and whether my kids will be able to see them when they grow up) There´s a nice little cafe with a pation to relax on...
