If you are interested in ancient history, then a visit to this site is a must do activity, however, to see the full site you need to be fairly fit and be able to walk as there are a lot of steps to reach the top of the site. The views from within the site, over the countryside and out... More

4 euros to get in but if you enjoy history then very interesting. The ruins are of a small city and you can see how 400 families lived at close quarters. A visit will only take round an hour. We went out of season but the coaches were all arriving at 12 so suggest an early morning start to miss... More

The ancient city of Kamiros costs only 4 Euros per adult and is well worth the little detour on an around the island trip. It is just about 10 minutes from the main coastal road and when you return you can take a little side trip through an authentic village to return to the coastal road. The scenery from this... More

This is an unspoilt 2,000 year old town. The marble may have been stolen, and the walls robbed for other houses in the area, but what remains is more than enough to visualise life in ancient Greece. Let your imagination run riot as you walk up the central processional way from the lower town to the great Temple of Athena.... More

We decided to do this trip via our tour operator. A lovely sight to visit but such a shame it was only for an hour, you could easily spend half a day here as there are some fantastic views to look at. Would recommend but if going via tour operator be warned as your time will be limited.

Our first venture forth as tourists, once we had a car. This is an amazing position, with three levels of the town, at the top the acropolis. It was possible to get a real feel of the town, with its streets and shops, public buildings at the bottom, the temple at the top, with cisterns and stoa. We learnt a... More

The drive from Kalithea to ancient Kamiros took around 50 minutes along the scenic coast road and what a treat it was when we finally arrived. It is well signposted within a few miles and easy to find. The ruins are wonderfully preserved and the scale of the site is impressive. The entry cost is minimal and I can honestly... More

This ancient city was abandoned many centuries ago and was subsequently buried under the sands of time. It has been excavated recently and is currently undergoing some restorative work to fully reveal its true splendour. You get to walk along streets, and enter houses and shops last occupied nearly two thousand years ago. There are no shops or restaurants vying... More

entrance 6 Euro, but kids go free. They are currently restoring a central staircase so you'll be able to access more of the buildings. At the moment their is a path around the whole site, giving good views of it all, and you can then actually access certain areas at the bottom. Very interesting place

Well preserved & clean ruins. Site larger than expected. Exciting to explore the ancient city. Was raining the day I was there, so the stones were a bit slippery.
