The restored odeon in Kos is free and open directly from the street. If visiting take a moment to explore the catacombs below the main structure to learn more about the site's history.

Beautiful piece of history. Free admission to the site and inside (under) the odeon. Lovely views of the mountains behind. Well worth a look if you're passing by or fishing the Roman Casa just 5mins walk away.

A small site with the original odeon (partly restored) which you can wander around. Not far from the Casa Romana and worth a visit if you're in the area.

The Odeon is well preserved and fully accessible, and the catacombs that run underneath it are a delightful curiosity, complete with a resident bat who probably thinks it's permanent twilight as he flies around. Free and worth seeing.
