Visitors are often surprised to discover that the largest island in view from Bodrum is the Greek island of Kos. It is part of the Dodecanese group of islands that includes Rhodes, Samos and smaller islands.
As ferryboats cross the straits daily between the harbours of Kos and Bodrum, there is a wonderful chance to visit the island whose history dates far back into antiquity. Amongst its mountains and farmlands, beyond the modern port and beaches, lies the beautiful site of the Asclepion, where the father of medicine Hippocrates of Kos practised his healing arts. The sanctuary of the Asclepion was the original site from where spread all the cults of Asclepios of ancient Greece and Anatolia.
While many tourists in Bodrum take a ferry ride for the day to Kos, few venture beyond the town streets.
In cooperation with a company in Kos, a tour has been created to make your visit worthwhile.
