Discover Kos - Island Tour Excursions à Kos
Discover Kos - Island Tour: An overview of the island, its picturesque villages, green landscapes, wild beaches, sacred temple of healing, The Asclepeion and its local flavours.
Of course Kos is famous for being the birthplace of Hippocrates (the father of the medicine) but there is so much more and we intend to introduce you to as much as possible.
REVERSED OPTION
Our first stop is the village of Kefalos. It is the most south-western village of the island and boasts some of the best beaches on Kos. Later we will visit a factory, where bee-keeping has been in the family for generations. You will discover how they make honey, taste the typical “loukoumades” (mini honey donuts) and discover “rakomelo” (liqueur made with raki and honey).
We then take the road to Antimachia, the village located in the middle of the island, next to the airport. The village boasts a 200 year old renovated windmill in the centre and also has a traditional house, showing how the locals used to live in years gone by.
After that we will visit the village of Zia. A small lively mountain village which provides the most superb views. Zia has recently become the hub of the local arts and crafts on the island and you will find many small shops selling items such as olive oil, honey, kanelada and pottery to name a few. In Zia you will have time to have lunch in one of the tavernas in the area.
The next stop will be at the Asklepion, an amazing archaeological find that will truly transport you back to ancient Greece. Constructed in the 3rd century BC, it was not only a temple consecrated to the God Asklepios (the God of Health), but also a health resort. After The Asklepion, we will make a stop in Kos town in order to wander around and maybe do some shopping. DISCOVER OPTION
