Cruise to the ancient home of Hippocrates 

Just a stone’s throw from the coast of Turkey, Kos is a lush destination with plenty of history. Perhaps most famous as the birthplace of Hippocrates, since the early days of civilization this tiny island has welcomed intellectuals, scholars, and fellow world travelers seeking a little rest and relaxation.

Head to the center of Kos town (founded in 366 BC) and visit the Hippocratic Museum to learn more about the father of western medicine. Then just keep on walking because this old town is a pedestrian’s dream: car-free streets filled with interesting shops that offer everything from jewelry and ceramics to paintings and intricately embroidered tablecloths. Wander through the central market to pick up bottles of authentic olive oil, thyme-honey, and local produce like figs, grapes, and almonds.

For those who prefer to explore on two-wheels, Kos is perfect for cyclists, too. Rent a bike and hit the road for the beach. With nearly 70 miles of coastline, there are plenty of sunny spots to discover. Sprawl on a chaise lounge under a straw-thatched umbrella, cold beverage in hand, or don a pair of flippers for underwater adventures in the warm turquoise-blue waters. (Just what Hippocrates may have ordered!)
