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.

What a fabulous place! I love ancient architecture - we visited as a family and spent a couple of hours here taking in the sights. There are residential areas and streets, bath houses and temples - all '000's years old. It helps to get a guide book that descibes what you are looking at as some area are foundations rather...

Most tourists like Lindos and the beach, others prefer the Old Town and the shopping, but my absolutely favourite site on Rhodes, is Ancient Camiros. It is the only one of the 3 ancient cities (Lindos, Ialissos, Camiros) that was completely abandonned therefor, there are not any modern buildings that were built above. So you can get a very good...

It was wonderful to see how an ancient Greek village was set out and the views were excellent. These were towards the coast of Turkey and, from the top of the ridge, looking down into a well wooded valley. Marvellous!

The archeological ruins are amazing and so are the breathtaking views once you reach the top. Some of the most beautiful cliffs I have ever seen! Visited August 2013.

Sadly our car hire ended up taking a bit of time otherwise we would have loved to have arrived in the early morning - it was hot, hot, hot under the baking sun! This place is incredible and well worth a wander around, I love imagining what life would have been like in the market, the houses/shops so visible along... More

This was my second visit here and I am dreaming of going back. Incredible ancient place with lots to see. Arrive early before the crowds and the hot sun so you can appreciate everything. I simply can`t wait until it is further revealed... Unmissable with picturesque views. Not sure if it is great for buggies but is great history lesson... More
