Rhodes


Travel and LeisureFodorsUSA TodayNew York TimesNational GeographicWashington PostVogue
Once upon a time, Rhodes emerged from the sea. Enthralled by its beauty, Helios blessed it with 300 days of sunshine a year.
The island of Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese islands and one of the most popular holiday destinations in Greece, is steeped in 3,000 years of history, with a multifaceted character that over the centuries gained the reputation of a place of spiritual calm. One can discover the captivating beauty of this mysterious destination by taking a cultural trip to its numerous imposing archaeological and historical sites. Although almost all physical traces of One of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Colossus of Rhodes, have disappeared, the legend of this massive bronze statue of Helios, (almost as tall as New York’s Statue of Liberty), dedicated to the god of the sun - lives on.
Inside the Medieval City of Rhodes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will be transported back to the world of the Knights of the Order of Saint John. The knights settled on the island around the 14th century and called it home for almost 213 years until they were defeated by the Ottomans - and eventually settled in Malta. A great way to enjoy the Rhodes’ Old Town fairytale-like charm is to get lost among the rambling stone alleys where you will come upon charming squares, medieval arches, architectural marvels, impressive fortified walls, surrounded by cascades of bougainvillea. Let your imagination run free and the city’s atmosphere guide your steps to encountering an authentic experience inside one of Europe’s oldest medieval towns.

Things to do in Rhodes

The beauty of Rhodes does not end at the walls of its Old Town, in fact, one of the best ways to get the most of this big, versatile island is to explore its quieter side which is found in its wilder beaches, remote corners, and historical settlements. The charming coastal town of Lindos, perched on a rocky hill, is best known for its 3000-year-old castle and the well-preserved Acropolis. Rhodes is generous with the experiences that it offers to its guests, whether you are looking to enjoy the mountains or the sea, have fun or simply relax, prefer modernity or tradition - you will find it all here.
