The restored odeon in Kos is free and open directly from the street. If visiting take a moment to explore the catacombs below the main structure to learn more about the site's history.

Beautiful piece of history. Free admission to the site and inside (under) the odeon. Lovely views of the mountains behind. Well worth a look if you're passing by or fishing the Roman Casa just 5mins walk away.

Lovely piece of Greek history to visit! Well work a look if you are into culture and history when exploring the island. We visited on way to Kos town X

A small site with the original odeon (partly restored) which you can wander around. Not far from the Casa Romana and worth a visit if you're in the area.

Why they don't charge for these sites I don't know. Don't forget to see the exhibit under the odeon.

The Odeon is well preserved and fully accessible, and the catacombs that run underneath it are a delightful curiosity, complete with a resident bat who probably thinks it's permanent twilight as he flies around. Free and worth seeing.

Happened to stumble across this whilst out for a wander and this place is defo worth a visit. Would suggest you visit here in the morning as it is very exposed if visiting in the afternoon with the high temperatures during the summer months...

It is beautiful but not really special. It was nice to see. There's a free entrance. It is close a busy road so maybe you drive to fast and will miss it. Watch after that
