To the south of the 'Western Archaeological Zone' is another monument of the prosperous Roman period on Kos: the Odeon, a semicircular, once roofed building, which served mainly for musical events. Excavated by Italians in the 1920's it has been restored a few years ago,...More

We looked by when it was really quiet; not a soul around so I couldn't resist trying the acoustics. It's unbelieveable !! I understand that events are still staged here and hope one day to have chance to attend.

Went on a very hot day but worth a trip and the museum was interesting just a shame there are not a lot of artifacts.

Remarkably intact despite it’s age (roughly 1800 years old) and the earthquakes that happen in this area. Its a short distance outside the centre of Kos town but worth a walk. Walk up the stairs, sit in the seats or stand on the stage. During...More

We walked past this site twice before visiting it was amazing to think of all the people who had sat there before us.

We loved this site as all in the Old Town of Kos. It is free and definitely worth a trip just to see how the Romans built such places.

Not a big odeon but well worth seeing especially as it's free to enter. You can climb up the steps to get a good overview of what it looked like and during the day you can go under the seats to see where the actors...More

This wonderful piece of Roman architecture, a short walk from Casa Romana. The seating and stage are mostly intact but the building that would have once stood behind the stage is very battered. Not that his matters hugely because the place is still magical, and...More

If you visit one historic site this is the one. There is an exhibition that runs inside the Odeon with information boards etc which made it even more atmospheric. Check the opening times for this as it is closed one day in the week.

It's several years since I was last in Kos and was pleased to see that more work has been done at this site particularly the addition of an exhibition space which gives the visitor more information about the site. It's a great place to visit...More
