A well spent day just wandering around the site absorbing the history, well preserved, with amazing views too, well worth the time cost and effort.

We first tried to go to Kamiros after visiting Monolithos, but found that it closes early on Mondays! (3pm). So we got there and with a bunch of other disappointed tourists, had to look through the gates. That being said, we went again the next day right before we went to the airport and it was worthwhile to look around. I initially thought it was much more interesting, but then we went to Delos later in our trip (off of Mykonos) and it was MUCH bigger and more interesting, so my rating of Kamiros went down. If you're only in Rhodes, though, it's really interesting to see the ruins. We did the whole thing in an hour because we didn't have much time, but we also didn't feel like we missed much. You get a really nice view of the water from the top!

This for me was one of the highlights of our trip to Rhodes. We hired a car and drove to it down the west coast of Rhodes, visiting a couple of ruined castles along the way. The site itself has a beautiful aspect, on the side of a hill, overlooking the sea. Most of the ruins you can see date to the Hellenistic times - 3rd to 1st century BC. It is great to be able to walk through, in and out of the ruins of rooms. You can see and walk through the remains of temples, cisterns, reservoirs and even the remains of clay and terracotta pipes. If you like ruins, it's well worth a visit.

Go in the morning before it gets a) too crowded and b) too hot!! You can wander all over this ancient town which dates to approx 200BC.

We went here with our 7 year old. It was hot but since we were not tjat many there, you could really get a feeling of this historic site. We treked to the top where we got a lovely view and could have a nice picknick in the shade. I just wish I had read more in advance. I think i would have appriciated it better then.
