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

Kamiros, also known as the Greek Pompeii is the smallest of Rhodes three ancient cities which dates back to the 5th & 6th centuries. This well preserved site which runs down to a cliff that overhangs the sea has great views of little islets off Rhodes and the Mediterranean Sea. The ancient city was built on three levels. At the...

Many other reviewers explain the nature of this site, so I will simply comment on a few practical matters. The bus trip from Rhodes Town takes a little over an hour and costs 5 Euros each way. It leaves from the west side bus terminal - the northern of the two terminals on the west side of the New Market... More

Not much to see here in Ancient Kamiros, literally just some rocks. Barely any information about it. Wouldn't have been so bad if it was free but we paid the same to get into Lindos Acropolis which was far more interesting and enjoyable!
