Kos has many interesting places to visit. To begin with, it is the birth-place of Hippocrates, the father of medicine. In the town of Kos, visitors can see the famous plane-tree of Hippocrates, the Archaeological Museum, the Ancient Agora (31km), the Ancient Odeon (30km), the Greek and Roman Baths, the Temple of Dionyssos, Casa Romana and the
impressive Roman Castle of the Knights
that overlooks the harbour of the island.
Just four kilometres from Kos town is Asklepieion, a place of great historical significance
. Asklepieion used to be the greatest health institution in Ancient Greece, dedicated to Asklepios, the god of medicine. The view of the Aegean Sea from Asklepieion is stunning.
Aside from all the history, Kos also bears all the hallmarks of a Greek island holiday - fabulous sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, plenty of sunshine and fantastic, healthy cuisine.
