There is such a rich history in Kos town. This is just one location you really must visit, especially if you like history

Great location with free entry. Allows the braincells to imagine how the Greek & Romans were entailed at this beautiful example of Roman Architecture.. Inspirational historic site.

Would not really recommend a special visit. Its just an ancient roman stadium. Open Air. No great explanations written at the entry. Just gives you a feel to sit in the odeon. Within a day you can see the entire island.

Took a while to find it but worth the find. Very serene place and lovely to explore. There is a building that's locked up and never did find out what it was for. Worth looking to see what it was if you go there.

Well preserved odeon, no entrance fee. It is better to rent a car to check all the ancient sights within one day, the monuments are not close to each other (if you want to visit also Asclepion etc)
