A very interesting site to visit which is quite big but easy enough to get around on your own. There are storyboards at each interesting spot to understand and read what it's all about. Some steep steps but omg the views from the highest points were so worth it. There were lots of tour groups going around and I'm sure... More

We visited this historic site last week. For 7 euros the tourist train will take you there from Kos Town. One hour later and it picks you up again. We found one hour gives you enough time to look at the ruins. There are notice boards dotted around which provide the history of Asklepion. Entrance fee is 8 euros. Worth... More

This is a fascinating place but can be difficult if you are getting a bit older like us! We used the mini train to get there which was fun on the way. Being quite old we got the entrance for 6 euros for both of us and took our time going through all the different levels. We didn't have a... More

Kos really pushes it's status as the birth place of Hippocrates, and the Asklepion nicely links in as an ancient hospital, and the centre of worship of the God Asclepius. I reached it via a mini train from Kos harbour (15 minutes, €7). Entrance costs €8, so while it's not cheap, it's not extortionate either. There are three tiers with... More

We came here as a stop off on the way to Zia and it was great, it's 8 euros each to enter which is a bit expensive but it's really cool to see the ruins of the hospital. The ruins are in good condition and you can walk around a lot of it, so much to see. It takes about... More

As with all Greek archeological sites they are bought to life with a good guide. We had Manilos on our trip and he was excellent with not only his history and anecdotes but how he put it all into context. There is no museum or cafe and on a hot day you need shade and refreshment as you explore the... More

This is a sight not the be missed when in Kos. It's €8 entry fee and less for people over 65 years old and it's worth every penny. We went here as part of the Kos island tour with Theokratis tour agency. Our guide was very knowledgeable explaining to us what happened at each terrace, ancient medicine etc. We had... More

The structures and scope of this place has to be seen to be believed. Incredible architecture and stunning views are an understatement. Pictures do not do it justice. This is worth every penny of the 8 euro admission price... Take Water, or money for some if visiting in high season. !!
