The city is built along a wide bay and catches the eye from the very first moment. Here we shall visit the Knights' Castle, an impressive medieval building, Freedom Square with its huge plane, under the shadow of which Hippocrates is said to have taught, also Roman homes with marvelous mosaics early Christian basilicas and the Museum, with its' statue of Hippocrates (4th century B.C.) and other fascinating items of Ancient, Hellenistic and Roman times.

We can also see the Doric Temple of Venus, the Roman School of Music and the Castle, built c. 1450 - 1478 by the knights of St. John on the ruins of the ancient wall.

The Castle houses a small collection of Classical sculptures as well as inscriptions of the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and early Christian period.

Four km. to the SE of the city we shall visit the Aesculapium, infirmary of Antiquity, which began to be built in the 4th century B.C. The ground slope is such that buildings exist on four different levels connected by a marble stair-case. Among the ruins we can discern the Temple of Aesculapius, the Stoa of Hippocrates' medical school, and the altar.
Kos is a port of entry and exit. Port, customs and sanitary authorities are here, as well as a yacht refueling station.
