Casa Romana

Courtyard in the Casa Romana

The Roman House or Casa Romana is a Roman villa of the late 2nd and early 3rd Century AD, built in the ruins of a Hellenistic house with a wonderful sewage system (exciting, eh?) located in Kos Town. It consists of 36 rooms and 3 outdoor spaces. Open to the general public from Tuesday to Sunday from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm, it's a fantastic example of how to do restorations really, really well.

You get the feeling as you walk round that you could almost move in and live there - or at least imagine how people will have lived there - and, despite being right on a busy street in Kos Town (to be fair, the builders probably didn't anticipate the growth in traffic over 2000+ years), it is a genuine (non-cliché) oasis of calm.
