These two neighboring islands in the Dodecanese are linked by geography and history. Yet in many ways they are also diametrically opposed: Kos is large and cosmopolitan, long one of Greece's most popular tourist destinations. Nisyros by contrast is small, and primarily defined by its volcano, an out-of-this world landscape, born from volcanic lava.
In this issue, first explore the island of Kos over 115 pages. Read about Hippocrates who hailed from the island, his healing sanctuary and the many native plants he used in his treatments. Then wander the streets of the cultural melting pot of Kos Town, shaped by successive civilizations, before heading out to the beaches, or exploring the myriad outdoor activities on offer. Then whet your appetite by discovering Kos' rich gastronomic heritage.
Afterwards head to the volcano crater on Nisyros with its steaming vents and learn about its unique geology. Then explore the small but gorgeous villages perched on its rim, which, despite their size, offer a broad range of high-quality cultural offerings, graceful architecture, and unique traditional festivals.
