The places you will see on the itinerary Dodecanese South

Kos - Askleipeion  
Among other beautiful stops, here is the chance to visit the birthplace of Hippocrates and take a trip round the historical sites of the town, the Temple of Dionysus, the Asclepeion and the tree under which the Hippocrates Oath was composed are just a few. This island is rich in archaeology including Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Venetian sites. Despite the amount of tourists in the summer you can still get away, though a good guidebook like Lonely Planet is recommended.

Symi As your boat swings around the last headland, a fantastic sight opens up. Apparently slipping down the barren hillsides, gathered all around the great horseshoe curve of a superb natural harbour, are tiers of yellow - and ochre-coloured houses, interspersed with the white walls and bright red roofs of churches.
The houses are not typical Greek village houses but two- and three-storey neo-classical structures, in fact buildings of stature. It is these houses, built in Symi's golden days when the islanders grew wealthy on sponge-diving and boat-building. And the Greek authorities have placed a preservation order on the whole town to ensure the magical beauty is not lost.

Cnidus was a mayor Dorian city, famous for its temples, theatres, statue of Aphrodite, the world's first observatory, and medical school. It seems to have kept a purer Greek character, no doubt because it set its sights seaward and had little contact with the inland. Around 360 BC, the city was rebuilt at the windblown tip of the peninsula, banking on the fact that a good harbor at the outer corner of Asia Minor would become a popular calling-port for ships on the Aegean-East Mediterranean transit routes. The rocky island facing the shore at the new site was joined to the mainland with a causeway, creating two deep harbors on either side of the isthmus. One on the Aegean and the other on the Mediterranean.

And there is the landmark of the city, the 'Castle of Saint Peter', being build in medieval times from the stones of the collapsed Mausoleum and today it houses the first and world's largest underwater archeology museum.
