Create an itinerary including Ancient Kamiros
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.

  • Worthwhile visiting this place if you have a car. Discounts for students. A lovely walk around, not huge. Not many info boards but you get a leaflet with your tickets.

  • We found this place accidently while beach hooping. Very well preserved, each part has a board to explain what was happening there at what time. It's and open space with very little shade

  • It was a hot summers day when we literally stepped back in time... The Archaeological Site of Kamiros is very well kept. You can walk around the ancient city and admire the views or walk on the ancient steps through it like the Greeks did all those years ago. We were there on a Friday afternoon and it wasn't too busy (as you can see in the photos) so enjoy this place of history and capture the moment in time. Highly recommended.
  • Very impressive historical grounds. Gives a good impression of the classical age, where this city must have been beautiful. Especially the watering system is interesting. Too bad we weren't allowed to make a drone video
