Graet to wander around and great for me. A well preserved roman street, original mosaics, wall paintngs, marble and archways all very absorbing and free.
For the kids a bit more on site information would have been good to bring things to life a bit more.

It's free so go have a wander around. As to be expected it's very uneven so it's not suitable for everyone. Take a drink. Very interesting.

Just north of the Odeon, on the other side of the road, is yet another Roman treat. Some original cobbled streets remain along with (roof-covered) mosaics and the pillar remains of a gymnasium and baths.

A short walk from the centre of Kos, and opposite to the Roman Odeon. Its a huge site in various states of repair but visitors can easily spend and hour or two walking around the site. Some of the ground is uneven so good shoes are required and I did nit see any disabled access. I was bowled over by some of the structures and once again the joy of visiting this site was only enhanced by the fact that the entrance is free.

Worth a visit when travelling into town. It is opposite the Roman Odeon. You could easily spend at least an hour at this site exploring the ruins. Do your background reading before hand to learn about what your seeing. Comfy and good shoes is a must with uneven ground. Again free attraction.

This is an extensive site that has been much revealed. Unfortunately, the archaeological authroities have run out of funds and it is a little neglected in places. Much of this is due to the Covid crisis that was at its height when we visited. The mix of well-preserved and recently exposed remains makes it especially fascinating. We spent a good couple of hours wandering this site and enjoyed the experience. Recommended.

It is amazing that anyone can walk for free through these ruins into houses and sometimes with mosaics. In most countries it would all be roped off.
