Kos is the third largest island of the Dodecanese island group. It is located in the eastern Aegean Sea and sits off the coast of Asia Minor. This beautiful island has a population of around 31,000. The main town, Kos, is the tourist and cultural centre of the island, and has 18,000 inhabitants. Take a trip in your hire car to the thermal springs of Embos, located on the eastern part of the south coast some 12 kilometres away from the town of Kos. Here you can relax in a 25m² large stone pool at a pleasant 49 °C.
You shouldn’t miss out on visiting one of the oldest medical schools in the world, established by Hippocrates of Kos (460-370 BC), the most famous physician of antiquity. If you are planning a trip to the town of Kos in your hired cabriolet, visit Neratzia Castle, an ancient fortress in the middle of the beautiful city.
Greece – a journey back in time by car
Greece has long been one of the most popular destinations for northern Europeans. No wonder, with such a multifaceted range of attractions: the warm climate, the many beaches, historical treasures, delicious food and, above all, cordial hospitality – a country where you simply feel good in your skin. If you do not want to spend your time exclusively on the beach, a hire car from TUI Cars is the ideal way to get to know the country and the people. Both on the mainland and on the large islands, e.g. Crete or Rhodes, it is well worth going on a road trip to escape the hustle and bustle of the crowded attractions in the peak season and discover the most beautiful corners of Greece at your leisure.
Active travellers can drive to the forests in the north of the country to hike to their heart’s content. For history lovers there are so many opportunities for visiting archaeological excavations, Byzantine monasteries and Roman buildings. There are 14,000 km of coastline for beach lovers, especially if you want to discover the myriad, unspoilt beaches.
Get more out of your holiday trip to Greece and go on a discovery tour in a hire car from TUI Cars.
The island of Corfu is located south-east of the Italian “boot” and south-west of the Albanian coast, separated from the mainland only by the Straits of Corfu. The capital and the largest settlement on the island is the town of Corfu, with approximately 33,500 inhabitants. The beautiful old town of Corfu entered the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites in 2007. Drive south in your hire car and visit Achilleion, an impressive palace built between 1890 and 1892 for the Austrian Empress Elisabeth of Bavaria, also known as Sisi.
In the west, the popular tourist resort of Paleokastritsa, which means place of the old castle, not only offers a magnificent view of Angelokastro, the Castle of Angels, but is also the place for heading out on a boat trip to the nearby caves of Ágios Spyídon. In your hire car you can reach the village via route 24 in about 30 minutes.
Athens is the capital of Greece, the most populous city in the country, has a population of around 655,000 and extends over an area of around 39 km². The original settlement of what is now Athens, the cultural, historical and economic centre of Greece, goes back some 5,000 years. In your hire car you can drive to the Acropolis and visit a magnificent monument to its ancient past. Acropolis means summit town and was built as a citadel for the Athenians. It features the Parthenon, an ancient temple and Seat of the Gods.
Do not miss the Olympieion, the Temple of Olympian Zeus. It was the largest temple of ancient Greece and is still an impressive ruin. Although the start of the building dates back to the 6th century BC, it was completed under the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the second century AD.
