Nice walk around the ruins. There is no entry fee but I wouldn't have minded paying a couple of euros to support the on going projects.

There are many archeological sites all within walking distance in Kos town. The history of the settlement and the buildings are extremely interesting and you can wander around this one at leisure. Do check when it is open as it closes one day a week.

If your interested in history this has got to be on your bucket list! Let your imagination go and think of chariots going on the little bit of road etc. The mosaics,the pillars, the bath are fabulous!
