Rhodes, the sunny pearl of the Dodecanese Islands, is home to a host of treasures. The ancient ruins of the Acropolis of Lindos - an absolutely unmissable, beautiful white village - or Mandraki harbour are among the symbols of this resplendent island. Considered one of the most beautiful in Europe, the medieval historic centre of the town, with its charming narrow streets, invites you to discover its quintessential taverns and kafenions, where you can treat yourself to traditional dishes or party into the night.
Rhodes is a wonderful destination for water sports lovers. Various locations all over the island are perfect for surfing and kitesurfing. However, the best areas are on the breezier west coast and Prasonisi – a small peninsula on the southern tip of the island.
Take a one-day excursion to the islands of Symi or Halki. Visit wonderful, traditional Greek villages and enjoy their relaxed atmosphere.
Spend a day at Faliraki’s water park. Its wide choice of slides and pools for all ages will win you over.
It is no coincidence that the medieval city of Rhodes is on the UNESCO world heritage list.
After passing through the Gate of Freedom, the city - formerly one of Europe’s largest medieval cities - reveals a patchwork of 24 centuries of cultures and civilisations. The fascinating fortress-like medieval buildings, bastions, city walls, gates, alleyways, minarets, old houses, fountains and both lively and tranquil squares will transport you back to the Middle Ages.
The village of Lindos is another of the island’s UNESCO world heritage sites.
This traditional hamlet, whose ancient acropolis proudly overlooks the archipelago, is nestled at the foot of a sheer cliff and surrounded by the sea. The Acropolis bears witness to the glorious past of this naval power of ancient times which would have had 17,000 inhabitants. Attracting 600,000 visitors per year, Lindos vies with Delphi for the title of the second most-visited archaeological site in Greece.
