We visited the Kouros at "Apollonas" (North-East of the Island). It is definately worth visiting. His foot is taller than a man!!!! Apollonas also has a small beach and many nice taverns. Very picturesque!

It's so incredible to be able to stand immediately next to something so ancient. And the view is wonderful from where this is located. The town is very nice too.

You do not need a car as the bus drops you at sign post to Kouros. It's a lovely walk in shaded areas with views of countryside and old marble quarries. The statues are in peaceful settings and are quite breath taking . There are...More
