This Asclepion is considered to be the biggest from the main 3 (Trikala, Athens if i remember well and this in Kos). It is better to visit the place in the early morning in order to avoid the heat. The information provided to the monuments are too general.

This sight is well worth the visit (you can even get a bus from Kos town). Lots of detailed information on this important historic sight dating back to BC. Really interesting and only €8 each, set in a lovely forested area so would be relatively cool in the summer months.

We arrived in October 2016. The entrance to the rose 7 Euro ( children up to the age of 12 free ). The ancient exciting impressive and return you to the time. The place was quiet and relaxing and offers stunning temples and connects you to this forgotten culture

The history itself to me is more important than the visit and I suggest you read up on this site before you visit. We were lucky that we had an enthusiastic guide who made the visit much more 'lived in'. With limited mobility site is a difficult walk around and very exposed.

This was recommended to us by the front of house manager at the Diamond Deluxe hotel. She assured us that Asklepion was not to be missed, and we are very glad we listened. Access is via a small land train (with a very attractive and friendly driver!!) up a high hill. When you get there you walk through this unusual... More

Definitely recommend visiting. Not expensive to visit. Beautiful views when climbing to the top across kos. Do some reading on the history if visiting without guide. You can get here by mini train or tour bus. Lots of cats outside so bring food. The island of kos is full of cats.

You really should not go to Kos without going to see this place. It is what Kos is all about really. Not expensive to get in and refreshingly non commercial. We had a guide with us and this made it more interesting than if we had gone on our own. Swot up on your chosen device to get the best... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Unfortunately, we picked the hottest time of day, and went on the road train from Kos town. As a consequence of this, we struggled to get round all the exhibit, as you had only 1 hour to look around. I think between 1 1/2 hours - 2 hours would have been plenty. We'd sat on the... More

The Asklepion is a wonder in its entirety, said to be the start of modern medicine as we know it. If you get a chance to visit go with a guided tour as you will learn so much more.
