Too many tour buses on the day we went. We had hired a car especially it was a shame it was so crowded. There wasn't a great deal of information about the ruins. I think it could be better given the ruins are 2 c Bc

After a long trek down a dusty road the gardens are lovely but there isn't very much information to hand. The lady who ran it gave a preaching about chemicals and the perils / evils of processed food. Made me feel as if I was poisoning the kids!

Passed through before we realised we were at the place, its not that well signed and not a place we stayed for very long. Not made the best of the place but then again many of the 'sites' seem to be suffering from a lack of management and upkeep which we were told was due to the economic situation.

What is the reason of naming a private cultural center as The Gardens of Hippocrates???? It has nothing to do with Hippocrates himself. The lady there was interesting but the place was not what we expected to see. Herbs and plants presented are widely and easily found in Greece, nothing special really to see. Exhibition halls had limited and irrelevant things to exhibit. Among other things they involved shells, puzzles, children's drawings etc. I would be glad to see it, only if I didn't have to pay for it.

the entry price (5 euros) includes a cup of herbal tea
this is somewhere to visit for an afternoon as a break from the beach
