Car Rental Kos - Kardamena
Kardamena is a modern tourist resort located 29 km south west of the Greek town of Kos. The town itself is home to about 1,800 residents, but this figure swells considerably during the high season. It's not difficult to see why visitors flock here every summer: The surrounding area is a magical place of lush valleys, wooded hillsides, and sparkling coves, and Kardamena itself is built on the site of the ancient city of Alasarna, a significant ritual centre in the Classical period.
Hire a car in Kardamena and you'll soon be tripping over historical remains, including a sanctuary dedicated to Apollo and Hercules, a marble temple dating back to the 3rd century B.C., a theatre, Roman ruins, and the remains of a Christian-era temple dedicated to Agia Theotita. The local cuisine is exceptional, concentrating largely on locally caught fish and Greek produce. Take a cruise to Agia Irini, known for the therapeutic qualities of its thermal springs.
