Rhodes Information

Rhodes Island is the main city on the island of Rhodes in the Dodecanese, Greece. Famous since ancient times, Rhodes was once home to one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Although this masterpiece is now lost, the island continues to retain plenty of relics and monuments that capture the character and charm of its bygone days. One of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe, Rhodes town has rightly earned its place as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Add to that the sparkling blue seas, excellent climate and cuisine, and you have a first class holiday destination. .

Must see attractions in Rhodes

In Rhodes city, take a walk across the moat and through the arched entryway of Porte d' Amboise to visit the 15th century Palace of the Grand Masters. A perfectly preserved Byzantine fortress, this imposing structure is an integral part of the city and its history. Also visit the Governor’s Palace, the well-known Hotel des Rhodes and the gorgeous mosque of Suleiman the Magnificent. The local windmills are beautiful, quaint little structures dotted along the waterline and well worth seeing. Get to know more about aquatic life in the aquarium and visit the archaeological museum, housed in the important medieval Hospital of the Kings, for a rich collection of ancient treasures.



For a relaxing afternoon, enjoy ambling around the cobbled streets such as the Street of the Knights, taking time to explore the artisan foods, crafts and shops. Walk the walls of the old town and marvel at the medieval towers, gothic buildings and impressive facades. Head to Mandraki Port for lovely sea views; this Byzantine harbour is home to some recently excavated medieval shipwrecks. You can also visit the market for some top quality local produce. After visiting the port area, walk up to Monte Smith, the highest point of the town, for excellent panoramic photos of the marina.

Scenic drives in Rhodes

Collect your hire car at Rhodes airport and enjoy some of the beauty spots nearby. Just 3km outside of Rhodes town you can see the Theatre and Temple of Apollo at the Acropolis of Rhodes. Continue on to Filerimos, to view its restored monastery, the underground Chapel of Agios Georgios with its beautiful frescoes, and the 3rd century Temple of Athena and Zeus Polias. The Valley of Butterflies is an unusual, incredibly beautiful spot approximately 30km from Rhodes. A preserved nature area of lush valleys and waterfalls, it is a purposely protected haven for butterflies, where you can view a variety of species.

Heading 47km south of Rhodes town, travelling past picturesque villages, lush citrus groves, vineyards and aged olive trees, you will find Lindos, home to an Acropolis overlooking the Aegean. After viewing the ruins, take a swim in the secluded Stegna Beach before taking a trip to the ancient city of Kamiros to view its altar and public baths. For hot medicinal springs and a beautiful beach, try Kallithea, a wild, rocky spot that’s just 8km outside of the city. Head a bit further to Tsambika, 28km outside of the city, for idyllic turquoise waters, golden sands and picture-perfect scenery; an ideal spot for sun bathing, sea swimming and relaxation.

Rhodes Road Trip

"The Island of the Knights" is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. Wait, you do not know which island is that? Rhodes, of course! It is called that way after the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem, who once conquered it. Besides the obvious reasons why you should visit it, like admiring the sights and going to any of its amazing beaches, Rhodes has a lot more to offer. It was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and that is due to the Colossus of Rhodes. Also, the Medieval Old Town of Rhodes has been declared a World Heritage Site, so that says much about its historical value. Come on, let's take that rental car for a spin and discover this island!

If you want to be sure that you are going to get that 100% historical sense of the picture, then the Medieval City is definitely first on your must visit list. The sight of it is stunningly beautiful, and it would be a real loss not to drive towards it. In terms of architecture and culture, it is sort of the West meets the East, and this will give you a lot to explore and admire. Just be sure that you will have enough gas!



Why not continue your drive through history by going to another landmark, the Ancient Kamiros. The baths, the columns, the temples, the cistern, the house, those are all ruins that are meant just to fascinate you through how well they have been preserved. Of course that wherever you stand, you will have the chance to see amazing views, but if you manage to get to the top of the mountain, the greatness of the place is vowed to take your breath away.

If you are one of those people who love going to the beach, then you for sure know that a location like Rhodes is just the perfect fit for you. Since you have a variety of beaches, sometimes it might be difficult to choose. Who said you have to pick? Does not the sunny weather and the fact that you decided to rent a car make you want to visit them all? Prasonisi is a best way to start if you are in for one of the most amazing experiences of your life. Just imagine that you will have the privilege to drive towards a beach where two seas, the Mediterranean Sea and the Aegean Sea met each other. How often can you say that you have been at the crossroads of two seas? Thank God for all that parking space!

Feeling exhausted already? But how about all those are beaches that are waiting for you to give them a chance? Either we are talking Oasis Beach, Lardos Beach, Ladiko Beach, or any other of them, the only thing standing between you and the opportunity to see them all is you renting that car!

The Valley of the Butterflies, Petaloudes

The valley of the Butterflies or Petaloudes is an enchanting, lush, natural park located on the western side of Rhodes. It is approximately 27km from Rhodes city and around 20km from Rhodes airport. This is one of the most popular attractions in Rhodes and once you visit this idyllic site you will see why. As the name suggests the main attraction at Petaloudes are the beautiful butterflies that visit this valley between the months of June through till September (with August being the prime month for the butterflies) in order to reproduce. Trickling streams, waterfalls, quaint wooden bridges, all add to the idyllic setting at Petaloudes. There is also a restaurant in the park overlooking a waterfall.

Historical Site of the Acropolis of Lindos

Towering over the quaint city is the Acropolis of Lindos, a historical monument dating back to the Neolithic period. Built on this site are many other historic monuments including the temple of the Lindian Athena which is built on the highest point of the site.

This is truly an unforgettable experience. As you explore the sandstone remnants that were once filled with life, you cannot help but feel humbled as you become a part of this incredible history.

Mandraki Harbour

Take a stroll around Mandraki harbour which has been a very active harbour for over 2500 years. Located just outside the Old town this picturesque harbor is worth seeing. The two famous deer statues are at the entrance of the harbor and are said to be located where the “Colossus of Rhodes” used to lie. Surrounding the harbor you will witness an array of unique and grand buildings, each representing different periods in Rhodes history and the influence of different cultures that have played a role in shaping this unique island.

Old Town of Rhodes

The grand medieval castle was built in approximately 14 century BC by the Knights of John in order to protect its inhabitants from any external dangers. The medieval castle is now the oldest inhabited medieval city in Europe. This truly grand and majestic castle is now the very active highlight of the Modern city of Rhodes, with hundreds of restaurants, shops and attractions it is incredible to walk within the walls of this historic castle.

Archeological Museum of Rhodes

The medieval building of the hospital of the Knights is home to the Archeological Museum. The completion of the building was in approximately 1489 and is an attraction in itself. On display in the Museum are various artifacts that have been discovered during the many excavations on the Island. These artifacts are from a variety of historical periods.

he Archeological museum has six rooms and a garden which exhibit these amazing artifacts. Some of the highlights in the museum are the statues “the Head of a Grieving Woman” from the 4th century BC and the striking statue of Aphrodite bathing from the 1st Century BC.

Pefkoi Pefkos Beach

Pefkoi or Pefkos beach is approximately a 10 minute drive from Lindos and is probably one of the most pristine beaches on Rhodes Island. Adding to the beaches magic is its narrow stretch of sand; waves wash up to the cliff face surrounding the beach, at times covering the sand completely. As you relax on your sun bed you can put your feet in the sand underneath you and feel the waves wash under you, so beautiful and very relaxing. There are limited amenities on this beach; however, shops and restrooms can be located in the nearby restaurants and hotels.

Ancient Kameiros Kamiros

The archeological site of Kameiros is amazing. The city of Kameiros was one of the three most powerful cities in Rhodes during the Dorian period. Archeological findings suggest that this suburb was constructed in approximately 6th Century BC. Present day Kameiros stretches across the northwest coast of Rhodes. This suburb is said to have been built on three levels with the Acropolis, temple of Athena and the Stoa reportedly built at the highest point of the city. Unfortunately, during a major earthquake of 226BC large amounts of the city were destroyed, including the temple of Athena. Not only is the site magnificent but the views from the site are too. The decline of Kameiros occurred gradually due to the inhabitants abandoning the area, the reasons are still unknown.

Faliraki Water Park

After you have seen the many sites that Rhodes has to offer it is definitely time to cool off at Faliraki Water Park. The biggest water park in Europe, it is the perfect place to cool off on a scorching summer’s day. The park caters for all ages with different rides appropriate for different age groups. There are lifeguards on site and food and drinks are available.

The Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes

This is definitely one of the most beautiful and awe inspiring buildings in all of Rhodes. A majestic and eerie palace; located in the medieval part of Rhodes city, a truly magnificent building. Originally constructed in the 14th century the palace was then destroyed in 1856 and was reconstructed by the Italians who at this time occupied Rhodes. In 1948 when Rhodes was reunited with the rest of Greece the palace was then transformed into a museum.
