After the speech we were walking through... More

Such a beautiful place to enjoy history. Right on the edge of the sea with a fantastic view. Well preserved ruins showing life in Ancient Greece.

Preserved ruins of Hellenistic City of Kamiros which was destroyed in 226 BC but luckily the Insurance Companies paid up & it was rebuilt ! We walked the town with brochure in hand and were pleased by what was on show on a hot & sticky day. The view out over the blue Aegean was magical but no breeze I'm... More

In contrast to the old town in Rhodos town and Lindos this ruin had very few visitors while still be an amazing place. Once you visit you see immeadiately why this locaton was chosen as it has a grand vista that anyone would love to have. The site is well excavated and you have access to the entire ruin. The...

Well worth the trek in the heat to be fascinated by the ruins of this ancient city with its columns, its baths, and its cistern. As you rest by a large clump of rosemary the words of the guide may drift past you, but you sense the antiquity of the place, feel as if you know some of the things... More

Thoroughly enjoyable site to visit.There is quite a lot of walking involved,so maybe a bit of a struggle if you have walking difficulties.There is an admission fee payable.

The site of ancient Kamiros is well worth a visit. You can clearly see the location of temples and houses laid out either side of the main road through the middle of the valley.

I was really surprised to see that this site is a well preserved town. It feels like you are back in history when you walk the narrow roads and look at the ruins of all the houses in the town. There are awesome views of the mountains when you get to the top.

Its a small site but to get a feeling for how life was historically lived in an ancient city and how little personal space they had as well as how advanced the cisterns were I thought it was worth the trip.
