Kos recieved a rating of 5 / 5 from Direct Booking customers (1 reviews during - ). Customer reviews about Kos town, Kos

The town of Kos was founded in 366 BC, in the same area where modern Kos nowadays is to be found. It climaxed during the Hellenistic and Roman periods, being a crossroad between civilisations, between East and West, the meeting point for both culture and trade. Its public market was of great fame during the antiquity and still is thriving in our days.

When entering the harbour of Kos town the imposing medieval Castle of Neratzia (the Castle of the Knights of St. John) 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 the Platanos, the large plane tree under which Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, used to teach.
All around Kos town you can find signs of the past, reminders of the civilisations that passed through its harbour. Numerous buildings, built in imitation of the Italian architecture of the colonies in N. Africa, most typical being the Country Hall.

In order to take a taste of the antiquity wonders that Kos has to offer, make a stop at the Archaeological Museum, located at Eleftherias square, exhibiting a wide collection of archaeological treasures, such as the mosaic of Hippocrates, the Hellenistic sculptures of Aphrodite, Eros and one believed to be of Hippocrates himself.

This small beach can be easily accessed within a short walking distance from the main town of Kos. It is organized with sunbeds, umbrellas and it is close to all amenities, however there are other prettier beaches to swim in Kos. It is also known as Zouroudi beach. This is a suitable alternative if you are in Kos only for a short visit and you do not want to get away from the port. There are some hotels and taverns surround this beach, whose shore is pebbled and a bit deep.
