Explore the splendid archaeological treasures of ancient Kos Town and its surrounds during this picturesque, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Kos Town, Asklepion, Altar, Stoa and Ruins of the Doric Temple of Aesculapius

Depart the pier for the short drive to the Asklepion, an ancient, healing temple located approximately 2.5 miles (about four kilometres) southeast of Kos Town. The most famous archaeological site on the island of Kos, the Asklepion was the infirmary of antiquity and among the first cities to feature running mineral water. The Asklepion sits on the slopes of a low, tree-covered hill overlooking the Aegean Sea and Turkish coast. Due to the sloping ground here, buildings exist on three different levels and are connected by a marble staircase. Among the ruins to be seen during your visit are the altar and stoa of the Doric Temple of Aesculapius, which housed the famous Hippocrates Medical School. Following your visit, re-board your coach and drive back to Kos Town.


Archaeological Museum, Kos Town Walking Tour, Castle of the Knights, Ruins, Tree of Hippocrates

Upon arrival, proceed for a visit to the Archaeological Museum, home to a vast collection of important antiquities from this ancient island. Afterward, take a brief, guided stroll around this historical town, which was founded in the 4th century B.C. The Old Town was destroyed by an earthquake in 1933. The New Town, although modern, is picturesque and lush, with an abundance of palms, pines, oleander and hibiscus. The Castle of the Knights dominates the port, and Hellenistic and Roman ruins are strewn everywhere. Along the way, view the Tree of Hippocrates. It is said this huge plane tree was planted by Hippocrates himself about 2,400 years ago, and that he taught his disciples under its shade. At the conclusion of your tour, you may commence the short walk back to the pier, or opt to remain in town for further exploration and return to the ship on your own.
