Kos Town is big on heritage. We believe and highly recommend you should experience the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the island capital.
Kos town is picturesque and interesting. Neatly arranged streets converge on small squares. In Kos you can enjoy a splendid combination of old and new. Tradition, history of thousands of years, natural beauties, historical monuments, an abundance of local shops, restaurants, cafeterias and archeological places of interest.
The impressive Castle of Neratzia, built by the Knights Templar, which dominates the harbour front is bound to draw your attention. This castle is connected to the mainland by a bridge that crosses the palm Tree Avenue, the same one that connects the castle to Platanos. The 1000 yr old plane tree that is said Hippocrates used to teach under.
Around town you’ll also come across Archaeological museum, Ancient Town (now lined with small shops), Agora, Temple of Dionysus, Casa Romana, Odeum and Xisto (the remains of the largest gymnasium on Kos).
Ask at bus depot about the small train services for around Kos and to and from the Asklipeon.
