Not a big odeon but well worth seeing especially as it's free to enter. You can climb up the steps to get a good overview of what it looked like and during the day you can go under the seats to see where the actors...More

This wonderful piece of Roman architecture, a short walk from Casa Romana. The seating and stage are mostly intact but the building that would have once stood behind the stage is very battered. Not that his matters hugely because the place is still magical, and...More

If you visit one historic site this is the one. There is an exhibition that runs inside the Odeon with information boards etc which made it even more atmospheric. Check the opening times for this as it is closed one day in the week.

Impressive place, you can sense the history when you sit on the marble seats outside, and when your walk through the rooms hidden underneath. Well worth a visit.

This is a marvelous place to visit when visiting Kos town. Underneath the Roman Odeon, there is also an underground section to explore. A fascinating archaeological find. The statues found around here are based in the town museum.

Beautiful little Roman ampitheatre in Kos Town, which definitely rivals the Teatro Piccolo at Pompeii. It's surprisingly free and easy to get to by foot from the harbour. The rear and underneath of the theatre are interesting, and the site is calm and peaceful (well...More
