The city of Kos

The city of Kos is full of trees and has a very good road network. It is full of palmtrees and it has got a good town planning. Archaeological sights are found all over the city. It is ideal for walks and cycling. Kos is considered to be the island of cycling, because of its morphology. One can also enjoy a ride in the city by a small train, which makes the tour of the city centre. Another small train is at your disposal, taking you to the archaeological sight of Asklepion. Kos has also a very well organised Marina, one of the best in the Mediterranean, with the capacity of providing supplies and service for all kinds of ships.
