Greek Island Kos - Birthplace of Hippocrates

The ancient physician Hippocrates is thought to have been born on Kos, and in the center of the town is the Plane Tree of Hippocrates, a dream temple where the physician is traditionally supposed to have taught. The limbs of the now elderly tree are supported by scaffolding. The small city is also home to the International Hippocratic Institute and the Hippocratic Museum dedicated to him. Near the Institute are the ruins of Asklepieion, where Herodicus taught Hippocrates medicine. Kardamena is a popular resort for young British holidaymakers and has a large number of bars and nightclubs.

A few miles from Bodrum is the Greek Island of Cos. One of the best known healing centres (Asclepion) of the ancient world is here and it is the birthplace of Hippocrates, the father of medicine. Health seekers from the entire east Mediterranean were treated at Cos. The journey, by Hydrofoil, leaving from Bodrum at 9:00, takes just 20 minutes. You will be free to explore this picturesque old city at your own pace. Return to Bodrum is at 16:00 from Cos. Please remember to bring your Passport.
