So me and my partner visited.. Drove into the car park and walked to the gates which we then found out we had to pay 8€ each.. Didn't realise we would have to pay but we did and we walked into the attraction.. The signs were not very good! Not a great deal of information.. Seemed to be more signs... More

ok, so without a guide you will just see rocks and a bit of explaination here and there. with a guide you understand the gravitas of where it is you are standing. This was better than visiting Egypt. fully worth all the steps. Get a guide. The end.

The first thing you should know is that the is a charge for this attraction, while it is worth while, this wasn't made clear when we booked and paid for the island tour. The attraction itself is stunning in a beautiful location and steeped in some great history. The... More

Breath-taking! I was expecting a pile of rubble not a 'WOW'. Takes you back in time. Well worth a visit. We took the little train from Kos Town center which made the journey there more fun. There is limited shade on the site so make sure hats and sunglasses are worn. There are a lot of steep steps so wear... More

Visiting the island of Kos, this is defiantly a place to visit. Where Hippokrates started to heal people.

This Asclepion is considered to be the biggest from the main 3 (Trikala, Athens if i remember well and this in Kos). It is better to visit the place in the early morning in order to avoid the heat. The information provided to the monuments are too general.
