The Ancient Agora
Walking around the Ancient Agora gives you an experience and imagination of how a Greek market looked like in the early times. The archaeological site no longer functions as a marketplace today. However, visiting here lets you uncover a series of historical ruins including the Shrines of Aphrodite and Hercules, and many other remarkable remains.
The Castle of the Knights
One main attraction to keep on your list while sightseeing in Kos is The Castle of the Knights. This is a 14th century castle which stands as a secure fortress against the attacks of the Ottomans in the early times. In the present day, this castle functions as a museum exhibiting various historical sculptures.
The Western Excavation
One notable archaeological site, where magnificent Roman ruins can be found, is The Western Excavation. Amidst the monuments of the 4th and 3rd century B.C. in this area, you will find the important remains of the ancient gymnastic ground called Xystos and the western public baths. The Roman Odeon amphitheatre is also close to this place.
In ancient Greece an asclepeion was a healing temple, sacred to the god Asclepius. According to ancient Greek mythology Asclepius was the god of medicine and healing. Asklipieion is considered an important site on the island of Kos. A legend says that Hippocrates received his training there. It is also settled on the top of a hill and it lets you enjoy a panoramic view of Kos Town.
Wine Tasting

Casa Romana
Casa Romana, also referred to as the Roman House, is a beautifully decorated mansion which was built out of the ruins of another house during the Hellenistic period. It has an impressive appearance that is based on the 3rd century type of architecture. Along with its interesting ornaments and statues, you can find that on its mosaic floor, there is a depiction of a panther tearing a deer apart.
Nisyros is a famous tourist island located in the Aegean Sea. According to mythology, during the period of the Gigantomachy (war of the Giants) Poseidon (the god of the sea) plucked a rock from Kos and in anger threw it at the giant Polyvotis with the intention of killing him. This rock, which crushed the giant, became Nisyros, and the half-dead giant shakes the earth every now and then with his groans, thus awakening the volcano. The sight of it is quite impressive and a truly must visit for everyone.
Agios Theologos
Agios Theologos is one of the beautiful beaches on Kos. It owes its name to a nearby church of St.John the Theologian It is also referred to as Wave Beach and it is a great place for water surfing or flying a kite. During afternoons, when it is not too hot, you may walk around the area to view other charming sights.
