how could I go to Asclepieion from kos town?

Re: from kos town to Asclepieion

by Ouzone

Take the Noddy train from near the Hydrofoil quay/tourist info office just south of the castle. It runs hourly except Mondays when the site is closed. There is also a city bus #3 (Platani) from the bus stop centre of old harbour.

Travel Tips for Kos Island

Best Sunset on Kos

by sandysmith

They say the the best sunsets on Kos island can be seen at the mountain village of Zia. Undoubtedly the sunset at Zia is lovely but restaurants tend to be quit busy and touristic. We found a better alternative at Mastichari - a quiet seaside taverna on the beach front enjoying really tasty authentic Greek meals at the Tasty Palace taverna watching the sun dip into the sea. More sunset for your money here than Zia where it disappears behind the mountain first. Special memories of a lovely holiday.

Kos town

by Helga67

The capital of Kos, which has the same name as the island, is a lovely town. It has a harbour where you can find the Castle of the Knights, many archeological sites, buildings in different styles (Italian, Greek, Turkish), nice litlle alleys with many restaurants, cafes and shops and still enough vegetation which gives the town its tropical flare.

THE BEST BEACHES ON KOS

by whitecliff62

The town beach which is east of the harbour becomes very crowded during the day, a better bet, also called the town beach, is about 500m west of the centre where there is windsurfing and paragliding on offer. There are plenty of Tavernas and snak bars nearby, and it is close to the discos and water facilities, if you prefure somewhere a little more peacefull and less congested head for Tigaki, a little further west, or Psalidi on the other side of town both have water sports facilities avalable. Beond that there is Aghios Fokas beach which has volcanic black sand and is often deserted

Historical awareness

by stelioszac

The blend of the old with the new can be seen all over the island with all ages represented often side by side.

Whether it is bronze age remains sitting on top of the Seraglio hill in the main town just a stone's throw from the roman remains or a minaret, or whether it is the crusaders' re-use of columns from the hellenistic site of Asclepion in their castles, or even the old late antique churches now in ruins which scatter the landscape, you are always aware that we are just passing through in the same way that others have before us.

The image shows part of the castle of the Knights of St. John, who presumably got lost on their way to Alexandria and took a share of the carved up Eastern Roman Empire for themselves. The lintels of this gateway are monolithic columns carved about a thousand years before being re-used: all spolia from the sanctuary of Asclepius a few kilometers away. Hunting and tracking down the traces of those who walked here before us.

Military Forces

by gale.blog.pl

As the island is very close to the shore of Turkey and Greeks traditionally dislike Turks (see history of Greece and Cyprus), Kos used to host strong Greek military forces. Before the 'tourist era' soldiers and their buildings occupied all strategic places of this small land. On your walk along the beach you'll see several concrete bunkers - mostly falling apart or drawning in the sea or sand. There are still three or four minor military bases in the island.
