Kos Town is a heady mix of everything you could want from a Greek island holiday. With its city centre beach, a rich and varied history, cool bars and restaurants, and great shops, Kos Town holidays really do have it all. On the eastern side of the island, Kos Town is a great destination for sightseers. The countryside and the town itself display ancient ruins, while an impressive 15th-century castle looks out over the sea.
As you explore the town and its cobbled streets, be sure to stop at its landmark plane tree – it stands in a historic spot where Hippocrates is said to have taught medicine to his students. There are beaches to discover, both in and out of town, and foodies will be happy, too – dozens of tavernas serve Greek classics, light bites and chilled Greek beer. For a feast for all the senses, look no further than holidays to Kos Town.
