Kos, Dodecanese Islands
Kos is a small island in the Dodecanese, near Turkey. This peaceful island has always been home to holidaymakers and resort lovers, but now is far more welcoming to the average visitor. Most people come for the beaches, but the towns of Kos itself is worth spending time in, thanks to its fortressed ruins and plenty of delicious dining options. Head into the mountains for even more rural living.

Zorba the Greek found happiness in a glass of wine, a roasted chestnut, and the sound of the sea. When Azamara Club Cruises® passengers stop at the island of Kos, off the coast of Turkey, they can slow down and follow his lead by embracing the simple pleasures of the Greek isles—wandering the palm-lined streets of town and browsing in the shops, visiting the ancient ruins, and, at the end of the day, paying homage to Dionysus at one of the island’s wineries.
