We visited ancient kamiros with our two children last August, it's an extremely interesting and intriguing archaeological site, that is definitely worth the visit. Doesn't really get too crowded and the site is large enough to be able to avoid any crowded or busy areas. It does get very hot especially during peak season, so avoid the midday sun, best... More

Visited first thing in the morning (opens at 8am, 6 euros) and had the place entirely to myself, except for a number of lizards. The location is stunning, and so are the ruins. The site is extensive and great to wander around. Information boards make it easy to imagine the city as it was. Don't miss the enormous stoa high... More

We visited the site first thing in the morning, and we had the pleasure of going around it almost on our own. I'm not sure how busy it gets later in the day, but in those early hours, it is peaceful and quiet. The site has some really interesting parts and the structure can be visualised. It can get a...

We liked it more than Lindos. It's more interesting, less crowdy and it's simply beautiful. It was cheap for students (if you have card).

Ancient Kamiros is breathtaking if you like ancient archeology. You can see the complete structure of the city and all of the houses, baths, etc. After a climb up the hill you have a marvelous view over the ancient city with the sea as a background. The only downer was the ridiculously overpriced bar. A can of lemonade was 3... More

The city on its own has been designed by ancient Greeks marvelously.Today only the walls remain silent because the city's treasures are in Berlin. I wonder when all these countries that actually stole civilizations, would feel ashamed when they come to see where things belong.Also from the archaeological dept please use the 6€ collected from each visitor to print a...

We have been to many sites in Turkey, Greece and Italy, this site is interesting, but lacks information and seems to be only a small part of what was the city. There is no sight of active excavation at the moment. 6 euros to enter and kids don't pay.

It was the major city in Rhodes until Thodes town took ove after which it was deserted. I came here 31 years ago at which time it was deserted and free to visit. Not much has changed as I didn't see any evidence of further excavation sadly.
