A visit to the ancient city of Kamiros half way down the the western coast of Rhodes is both fascinating and scenic. Easily reached by bus - and the bus DOES go up the long uphill drive to the entrance of the site and not drop you off on the main road, as my guidebook said - just as wel because it was hot!
Kamiros was one of the ancient cities of Rhodes, being built around the 7th century BC. it was only discovered in 1933 and due to the outlines of the houses which you can see it has been likened to Pompei - although this site was not covered in volcanic ash. The view from the top of the site looking towards the coast is spectacular.
