This is a wonderful historic place to visit. Good info, cheap. Lovely countryside, fantastic views across to Turkey. There are many historical sites to visit in Kos but this we all agreed was number one! If you are in Kos, you should visit! We have visited before in mid Summer but this was the best time. Spring, early summer, flowers... More

It's a pity this amazing site is not made more of. Most of the visitors were wandering aimlessly around this site of immense proportions and even more huge significance in the development of modern medicine. With a little foresight and investment, the experience could be phenomenal!

A must do when in Kos. Not far from town centre and worth the visit. It covers a huge area and it's just awesome. Climb to the top of the stairs and look at the view. Amazing. The ruins are about 3 BC..it doesn't take long to walk around d the site. Just amazing. But so is Greece.

I went to Asklipieio with great anxiety to see this great historical place and feel its unique energy. I was rather dissapointed by the quality of the services and shocked by the abandonment of the whole place.

If you are into history, than you will find this place interesting to wander around. The site has several terrace that are accessible by steps, and the ground is uneven. l would advise wearing a good pair of shoes to explore the site! The entrance fee is 8 euros per person

I enjoyed our visit here very much, even my partner who is not as enthusiastic about visiting these sites as much as me, found this good! It is €4 each to get in, and we spent a couple of hours wandering around the site. There is not a great deal of original architecture left, but enough to fire your imagination.... More

Have made several visits to the Asklepion, It's amazing place built on 3 levels the view from the top tier is unbelievable, taking a looking back on some 2000 years in history, the architecture is incredible...It's a must see place...on the way out treat yourself to cold glass of fresh juice a little expensive but well worth it..........

We travelled to Asklepion with a local "hop on hop off"-bus. Entrace was only 8 euros and bathrooms available as well. Noisy crickets and nice ticket checker will welcomed us there. You will have to be prepared to walk a bit further than entrace to see more and views are stunning, especially on top of the stairs ! (unfortunately not... More

This site is one of the typical hystorical sites of Kos. As such also a place which is visited by most of the tourists and as such an entrance fee of 8 EUR has to be paid per head to visit a pile of rocks. Everything in Kos seems to be organised to make sure tourists arrive at their 'destinated... More

Wow! If you like visiting ancient sites and have any interest in history, particularly the history of medicine, then you will love the Asklepion in Kos. It was a major place of healing in Ancient Greece, established around 300 BC, containing baths, temples, dormitories and a gymnasium. It is fascinating to think that people came there hoping to be healed... More
