Ancient Kamiros Tours

Ancient Kamiros
The ancient city of Kamiros stretches along the northwest coast of Rhodes. Once among the most prominent cities in the Dodecanese Islands, it thrived off local figs, wine, and oil production. The Hellenistic ruins of Kamiros, including the remains of the agora, temple, and reservoir, were rediscovered in 1929.

The Basics
Wandering through the ruins of ancient Kamiros, it’s possible to envision the grandeur of the former city. Built on three levels, it was once crowned by a hilltop acropolis with spectacular views along the coastline, while the lower levels housed a Hellenistic temple, Doric fountain house, agora, and Peribolos of the Altars. The remains of Kamiros are one of the most important historical sites on the island, along with the acropolises of Rhodes and Lindos. Explore the site on your own or as part of a guided hike from Mount Profitis Ilias. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Ancient Kamiros is a must-visit for history buffs and those with an interest in ancient Greek archaeology.
  • Don’t forget to bring sun protection, as the site offers very little shade.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces.
  • Rocky and uneven paths make the site unsuitable for wheelchairs and strollers.

How to Get There
Ancient Kamiros is located on the west coast of Rhodes, about 22 miles (35 kilometers) from Rhodes town. It takes about 45 minutes to get there by car or bus. 

When to Get There
The ruins of ancient Kamiros are open to visitors daily throughout the year, but the best time to visit is on a weekday afternoon, when you’ll share the space with fewer visitors.

Archaeology of Kamiros
Artifacts excavated from ancient Kamiros are on display at prominent museums around the world, including the British Museum in London and the Louvre in Paris. For a better understanding of the human history of Rhodes before your visit to the ruins, explore the Archaeological Museum of Rhodes in Old Town.
