Don't forget, if you go to the museum in the main square you can get a three day ticket that gives you access to the Castle, the romantic villa and the museum for only 13 euros. I didn't know that last year and would have saved quite a few euros if I had know.

I'd never visited the castle in Kos before - it was well with it this time. Only €4 entry fee (at time of writing) and so worth it to walk around the castle walls with amazing views out to Turkey beyond, on a warm summer's day.

The title says it all. Admittedly we visited at the start of the tourist season, however that does not excuse the poor condition and lack of maintenence of the site. Zero facilities other than unattractive toilets. Visitors should be aware of safety risks from unprotected edges of upper walls. Poor value for money.

A nice walk offering some spectacular views of the city and twards Turkey & sea. Just for the stroll worth the visit. (beware with kids - steep drops not always guarded too well!!).

It is well worth the climb up to the ramparts for the view, there is little of the castle but when we visited the wild flowers were spectacularly beautiful and aromatic. Buy the multiple site ticket which lasts 3 days for good value.
