After visiting the site of Ancient Kamiros, which was very interesting and the view was spectacular, we sure were taking fools at the cafenio (not part of the site) it is separate , we have to make that clear. We were charged Euro 3.50 for a small bottle of water (yes 3.50 Euro) and 4.00 euro each for a can... More

This is one of the three important ancient cities of Rhodes. The ruins are in good shape and you can get a real sense of how the town must have been. Climb through the ruins to the top to get great views of the coastline and other directions, then circle back along the ridge to see the town ruins from... More

Impressive ancient site with stunning views over the sea. Ask for an information leaflet at the entrance.

We hired a car and drove here from Rhodes town, its a nice drive hugging the coast all the way and takes about 1hr. 4 Euros for an adult entrance fee and well worth it. Walking among the ancient stones and visualising how this town would have been over 2250 years ago is worth the effort. As you climb up... More

Spent several hours touring this Ancient Greek city and enjoyed it immensely. If you go here during the summer months, bring a hat, wear light colored, loose clothing, and bring plenty of water. If you can, arrange for a tour. You will miss a lot by "winging" it.

We weren't expecting much but Kamiros is big and beautiful, we spent several hours exploring and enjoying the views. I did download some information on the site from the internet beforehand so that we had our own tour guide. There's enough stoneworks left that you can get a very real understanding of how the town was set out and there... More

This is a must-see place in Rhodes. Amazing scenery of ancient city Kamiros. All remains are in really good condition, you can even see some writings on a stone. It is better to go there as a tourist group with a guide - the information flyer you get at ticket desk is not so informative. Or get some tourist book... More

A knowledgeable guide is a must. The layout of this 2500 year old city needs explanation but with it the whole place comes to life. This is beautifully preserved and restored and has several pre-Roman features showing where the Romans got their ideas from.
