Dodecanese travel guide

3.9
Beaches · Ruins · Castles
The sunny Dodecanese are a group of over 150 islands known for their beaches, ancient churches, and medieval castles. The twelve major islands lie at the southeastern edge of the Aegean Sea and wrap around the shores of Asia Minor. The island chain's major attraction remains Rhodes, the largest and the most developed island of the group, known for retaining many traces of the Byzantine and Ottoman empires. The smaller islands, which are more remote and less frequented by foreign tourists, remain free of the package-deal crowds and retain their traditional way of life. Spend a relaxing holiday on Symi or Patmos, or settle on well-connected Kos and spend your days touring the smaller islands by boat.

Beaches · Landmarks · Ruins
A tiny island big on history and tradition, Kos appears littered with ancient ruins and well-preserved Corinthian columns. Located just 4 km (2 mi) from the coast of Turkey, this minute Aegean island boasts over 100 km (60 mi) of coastline and offers a string of immaculate beaches within easy walking distance of fine shops, bars, and hotels. The past and present seem to converge within the narrow streets of the town of Kos, where cosmopolitan cafes sit right next to ancient traditional taverns. Tourism and farming remain the island's main sources of revenue, its interior dotted by lush groves of almond, fig, and olive trees.
