Casa Romana


It’s time to fully explore Kos’ Roman era now, starting with the Casa Romana (or Roman House), a 36-room mansion with three atriums, each with its marble fountain. The frescoes and floor mosaics give you an insight into the luxurious decor of an aristocratic residence in Roman times, with many of the details we enjoy today the result of a restoration project in the 1940s. You’ll admire floor mosaics with artwork depicting animals (such as a leopard, tiger and dolphins and other sea life) as well as statues of nymphs, the god Asclepius and the goddess Athena. The architectural style has been likened to that of Pompeii.
