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.

  • To Kamirosu, you can easily get a public bus service from the city of Rhodes (departure at 9.00 pm and 11.15 pm) directly to the entrance to sights, return back from 12.20 pm in Kamirosu and 14.40 p.m. The price of a one-way ticket is euro, 5.2 tickets are purchased in a kiosk at the bus station. Admission is 6.0 euro. Defined period of time is sufficient to explore and relax. The path is suitable sports shoes with moulded soles. In addition to the remains of the ancient city there is also a nice view of the surrounding mountains.

  • We loved visiting here. We went in the early evening (open until 8pm, 6 euros, children free). Wonderful site, great views.  more »
  • I expect better than that. The visit takes about 30-45 minutes it leaves room for your imagination... entrance €6 breakfast none written along the tour. Let alone in french than in English. And Council do not stop at the little café in the end a tourist €4 the bottle iced tea and not clean toilet.

  • These ruins have a wonderful view and are well maintained. The entrance fee is reasonable at 6 euros a person and children are free. There could be more written about the site or a guide pamphlet would be very helpful.
  • Beautiful! Very big and very nice to vist.
  • The ancient ruins are fascinating
  • This ancient ruin is a real glimpse in to how this community once lived. extremely advanced for its time and set in a beautiful location. the restoration work on the site has been done very well. would definitely recommend going, but be warned on a very hot day there isn't much shade around.
  • Great place to visit, old ruins shows big community was living there. Entrance is paid but for 4 person we got free pass
