Description

We'll tour the Asklepion, the ancient Greek version of med school. The three-terrace complex sits on a hill surrounded by Cyprus trees. In addition to being fascinating in itself, the Asklepion also has some breathtaking views. We'll visit the archaeological site, which contains the ruins of the old gymnasium and thermal baths from the ancient Greek era. Our tour will continue to Kos with a visit to the old part of the city. Sites we'll see include the agora—the ancient commercial and social center of the harbor and one of the largest to have been excavated to date.  Nearby, we'll find the Tree of Hippocrates, where legend has it the Greek savant taught his students. Our last stop will be the medieval castle built by the Knights of the Order of Saint John.
