The most popular period to visit Kos Town is during peak summer with temperatures often climbing to the high 20s and low 30s during these months. However, even if you travel here during the spring and autumn months you can expect plenty of company in the town and on the beaches. The temperatures drop to around the mid-teens in the winter months and while there will still be a few things to do in the off-season, Kos Town definitely doesn’t see the same level of activity as the summer.
Kos Town has several historical sites that should be on your to-visit list. One of those is the spectacular Casa Romana, a restored Roman villa which is now home to a series of old art exhibitions. Neratzia Castle is also worth doing. This medieval castle is mostly ruins now but has a fascinating history as well as providing stunning views over the harbour of the region. Other worthy mentions include the Tree of Hippocrates and the Roman Odeon of Kos. It isn’t just historical sites in Kos Town though, with a great selection of beaches close by which are ideal for relaxing, swimming and trying out some water sports.
The capital of Kos has a wide selection of accommodation options to choose from. Anything from budget hostels to standard package-holiday hotels to more luxurious choices are available.
