    A lovely vibrant town square. Lots of cafes and shops which are all reasonably priced. We spent a day in Kos town and having a cold beer in the square was just lovely

    Although it didn't take us long to explore, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Full of history and was kept in good condition. We got some great photos and were the only ones there at 10am

    Absolutely beautiful. Breakfast with a view of boats and islands and stunning crystal blue waters. There was four of us and for 4 breakfasts, orange juices and a coffee and a water each it was so reasonable and affordable. Fab treat to ourselves at the end of our holiday. Peaceful place to relax and dine or go for a stroll either at the evening or during the day.

    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.

    I really was in my element here and I could have spent another hour walking around were it not for the heat! ☀️ 💦 The ruins were beautiful and I love the way they’re generally left without railings/chains etc and tourists are trusted to use their common sense so the feel is more authentic. There were signs dotted about but they were very old and I still couldn’t make sense of what was what when I was looking at the arial image of the agora. I would have really appreciated more info. But do you know what, for free, I can’t really complain! It’s a must see

    Peaceful place, with blu sea.
    Little km of the town city, you can find this place.
    You can put your beach sheet or buy with little money umbrellas and loungers.
    Additionally beach you can drink a delicious drink at the beautiful and charming bar just being the beach.
    I would raccomed it, worth a visit.

    Fantastic jewellers. So honest and respectful of your possessions. Went in and was quoted £50 for a repair went back and was only 30 as repair wasn't as first though. Not many people would do that. Speak to Franco. Wonderful man xxx

    Due to earthquake damage it's regarded as unsafe to enter. Although you can still walk around it and take snaps. If my memory serves me, I believe there's a tiny chapel adjacent to the church where you may contemplate and light a candle. I adore Orthodox Christian churches, especially inside though.

    Nice square but needs work as covered in weeds,faded signs etc. Easy to get to from the harbour and we enjoyed looking at the cannons but mosque next door is run down and ruined the experience for us personally.

    Beautiful setting for a mass. The priest could do with a microphone as it was difficult to hear due to the noisy birds etc. the little church was lovely and very well maintained. I specifically enjoyed being outside in the shade of the trees. Even with the noisy birds, it was still a lovely mass.

    Had a lovely day trip to Kos Town, it is a very pretty place to visit and the people are lovely, however our trip was spoilt when we went to change some money. There is a little place on the harbour front that sells ferry tickets and also changes money, it is next door to the tax office. The man did change our money but didn't give us the going rate, he basically gave us €100 for £100 and told us that was what we were getting when we questioned it, but by then we had already handed our money over. Very rude man and obviously making a killing on every tourist going in there to change money.

    We stumbled upon this beach bar on a bike ride. We were able to get two excellent sub beds (thick mattresses), a parasol and chair for free. You just had to buy a drink. Drinks were so delicious and ice cold. We had some non alcoholic cocktails which were fab!
    Staff were all very friendly & attentive.
    There was a great vibe with a live DJ playing during the afternoon.

    It's located right on the promenade for all to see. It's worth a pause in your step to take a picture.
