Ancient Kamiros, Rhodes

4.3
Explore the remains of an ancient civilization dating back nearly 3,000 years. Ancient Kamiros was established by the Dorians but was likely inhabited even earlier by the Achaeans. The ancient town flourished as an agricultural society, producing oil, wine, and figs during the sixth century. The town was abandoned gradually as the residents moved to the nearby city of Rhodes. Stroll the streets and residential areas to imagine what life would have been like in the ancient town. Walk up to the top of the hill to see the acropolis and a covered reservoir, which could supply water for up to 400 families. Enjoy a spectacular view of Rhodes and the sea below.

  • Rhodes west Coast is (thank God ) still unspoilt and for the ones who really come here to explore this beautiful island!!! Ancient Kamiros is the best well kept ancient city on Rhodes and it is quite ...  more »
  • The archaeological site of Kamiros from the Hellenistic period, which pulls up a slope in the several terraces is located on the West coast of the island of Rhodes. She was one of the three ancient cities of Rhodes and was destroyed by an earthquake around 2000 years ago and is one of the most important archaeological places of the island. The view from up here, from the ancient site, about the green of the country to far on the sea is wonderful. My sons and I found a nice visit and because I had a lot to do this also to read, it was also interesting to imagine how people lived here previously.

  • Unknown to many archeological site, but worth it and moves. Imposing venue with good homing and explanatory signs tour. Unique location with spectacular view to the Aegean. I suggest visiting.

  • We disappointed by looking at opening times on Google in March shows opens till 6pm. Only open till 3pm. Better check timing first.
  • God I loved this place. Everyone seems to pile into Lindos, but for me, Kamiros completely overshadows Lindos. An entire ancient city laid out before you. I loved the atmosphere, imagining the place full of people, markets bustling on the main street. Go and see Lindos, it's great, but definitely don't miss Kamiros! And half the price!
  • All in all a very well maintained site to visit. There is a entry fee which is really affordable.
  • I guess that this is really a nice place for historical finds that are well maintained and cared on this site. I took several pictures due to the amazing view you could enjoy staying down here. I found the price a little bit higher compared to the other historical sites I visited so far both in terms of finds and dimension of the site. Anyhow, highly recommended.
  • A marvellous place, takes you back to medieval greek times. But: do not eat and/or drink at the Snack Bar!!! They fool you with astronomical prices, up to three times higher than regular in gastronomy!!! We noticed too late 😩
