Shore Excursion Kos: itinerary

The shore excursion begins in the old town of Kos, located close to the port.

Here we’ll see The Castle of the Knights of Saint John. Dating from the 14th century, we’ll visit the remains of the Temple of Aphrodite, the Temple of Heracles and the ancient Agora.

Our Kos shore excursion will then travel to the Roman Odeon. This ancient auditorium was used for musical events and competitions, and even as the seat of the local senate.

Opposite lies the ancient Gymnasium where athletes would exercise, bathe and clean themselves with oil.

Nearby is the famous Tree of Hippocrates, under which the father of medicine was said to have taught his pupils. The 500 year-old tree you see today is said to be a descendent of the original tree which stood there 2400 years ago.

At the end of the shore excursion, we’ll go back to the port by bus for boarding.
