Review of "Asklepion Site, Kos"
Steve Fountain aged 65. Took retirement in February after total of 49 Years work . Made it to METEORA in 2014. Crete and Kos this year. 2017 will be Lesbos and Tingaki again.
The Asklipion Complex is well worth a visit if on Kos.It features on any of the Island Tours you will find in all the resorts on Kos advertised by the local Travel Agents or by your Tour Companies.
As always you will find your Tour Operators are more expensive than a trip down the road in your resort to the local agents. All will offer tours in English, or may be a mixture of English, Dutch or German.
The Asklipion lies a Few Km outside Kos Town, and can be reached in several ways, Walking for the Hikers is possible, Push Bikes on hire everywhere, A taxi would not be expensive but you would have to make sure they would return to pick you up. There are Land Trains that run regular service, times available at Bus Station in Kos.Admission to the site is 8 Euros with a reduction for Students and OAP Over 65, show either your Passport or Medical Card as proof of age.
Children are Free.
The sire is famous as the Birth Place of modern Medical Science founded by Hippocrates alive 460-377 BC.It is laid out on three terraces.
The first level is where you would have been assessed for your problem and treatment required.You would then move up to the second level for treatment.
The third and highest level was for recovery.As with most Sirtes you need information and imagination.
A good guide book an advantage but there are boards and diagrams and artist impressions on all levels.
I my self suffer from Vertigo and I must say coming down on the steep steps took a bit of time and concentration on my feet.
But you can use a path that starts on the left hand side of the site and wends its way to the top.
