    Nice visit to piece of history
    Very nice to drop by in piece of history. House doesn’t look much when you look at it from the outside, but definately visit to inside is worth it. House was quote big and you can feel Ancient atmosphere there.

    Enjoyable couple of hours in the shade
    The rooms were set out really well with very informative signs in English. The frescoes and mosaics were what we went for and we were not disappointed. There is an upstairs area looking out into the courtyard and an outside area too. This was one of two archaeological sites in Kos that you have to pay for entrance. Be aware that, due to no longer being EU citizens, the price is double for Brits at 6 euros.

    Interesting and nicely presented
    We spent over an hour exploring the Roman House in Kos and thought it was very good value, especially as part of the 3-in-1 15Euro ticket. The house itself has been rebuilt/restored and there is information about how this was done provided inside. The grounds around the house have been left as ruins so you have a nice mix of both restored and not restored. The house itself is used almost like a museum with exhibits presented and also some nice artwork on display that complements the historical exhibits. If you are staying in Kos then I recommend a visit during the day - the house offers shade from the midday sun.

    Not to be missed
    Wonderful restored Roman house which gives you a real feel for how people lived. The Casa is extensive with lots of different rooms, a beautiful courtyard, lots of exhibits and even an upstairs floor. There are very readable information panels, in Greek and English - aren’t we lucky? It really is not to be missed. As I paid to get in I was asked where we were from and said the UK. Guy on the cash desk contradicted me and said Ireland. I was then charged €3 each which is the EU rate, not €6 which is UK post Brexit. So there’s a tip I wish I’d known when I paid €6 to get into Kos Archaeological Museum, also well worth a visit.

We visited Casa Romana in June and were glad we had not missed it. Which you could easily do just walking past the site. At first sight it appears as an area of land with an abundance of low quality ruins and a smattering of broken column heads etc. surrounding a large building devoid of any real external architectural features. This appearance gives no indication of the quality of the interior of the villa.

Having paid the minimal entry fee (6 euros p/p I think) we ventured inside and were very pleased we had. The villa has been partially reconstructed with original features restored that really does give you a real feel for what it must have been like as a Roman villa. There were numerous displays in the ante-rooms with interesting items/artifacts to see that to help give an insight into what may have been inside and of its time. There are display boards with a timeline on the reconstruction/excavations and showing its rescue/restoration. Some of the rooms were empty when we visited and I did wonder if perhaps a room showing perhaps how the room would look in daily use would have been useful, such as a reconstructed bedroom perhaps.

There were a number of nice statues/sculptures on display too.

The open air central Atrium with its two-storey colonnades is particularly impressive, with its Doric and Corinthian headed columns. Some of the column sections have been reconstructed, but it has been done in such a way that allows the viewer to see what was original and what is a reconstruction. This does allow the viewer to see past the reconstruction and just enjoy the feel for the space and in doing so it offered us personally one of the best examples we have seen of a Roman villa. We spent about an hour at the villa and were pleased we had found it, as it was worth the visit if you have any interest in history or Architecture.

Now the bad. At the far end of the atrium is a large ante-room (perhaps the largest room) it contains partial mosaics to the floor and decorative panels to the walls. There is also a marble table and a couple of statues. Access to the room itself was cordoned off, possibly to protect the floors, not quite sure. However at the time of our visit there were approximately 6 pigeons constantly flitting in and out of this room and onto the roof over the two-storey colonnades. As a result this room had a build up of pigeon guano on the floor and in particular on the marble table. It is beyond comprehension that these have not been eradicated as not only is this likely to lead to damage to the restored features but the guano is detrimental to human health. Whoever is the curator/principal conservator of this building needs to get this matter resolved and the pigeons removed.

Do not let my last comment put you off visiting this unique building when in Kos. Just maybe if enough people visit the combined entry fees can help fund further displays and addressing the pigeon issue.

Tip. It is fairly close to the Odeon Amphitheatre which is also worth a visit.

6euro entry price and worth paying. Gets you out of the sun for an hour too! Tour takes you through the house looking at mosaic floors, painted walls, statues, pottery, coins and lots of information boards telling you what you are looking at. Really interesting.

This is well worth the visit if you are interested in seeing the scale and sophistication of a Roman villa. Very sensitively preserved and extremely well presented

Well worth the entrance fee. A beautiful restored ROMAN Villa. Lots to see here and you get a really good insight in how they lived and worked - do not miss the surrounding gardens and you will find a public toilet here - clean and in good condition

This was a paid on entry at 6 Euros each for adults with reduced prices for age groups. Much better than expected with excellent interpretation of the villa. The villa seems to have been a reconstruction of part of the site by the Italians during their 1930's occupation and subsequently restored in turn very recently. Lots to see and the highlights are the mosaic floors and statues. Well worth it.
