The colossus is long gone, I'm afraid but the harbour is beautiful. Take a boat and look back at it and you could imagine yourself in ancient Greece. The island of Symi is stunning and well worth the trip. The ferry is very smelly and...More

Truly magnificent site as much as the Colossus itself is left to one's imagination. The idea though has fascinated me for years :-)

Nice view of the harbour and all, but since the Colossus is not there... don't build expectations. Don't even have a 100 characters for it :)
