Rhodes, the capital of the Dodecanese, is an island which is ideal not only for those who want to relax but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. Whatever style of holiday visitors prefer, in Rhodes they will have an amazing time and will enjoy every minute of it!
Combining, history and culture, natural beauty, cosmopolitan atmosphere and legendary hospitality, Rhodes welcomes everybody generously, makingyour vacation an unforgettable experience. With 2400 years of history & culture that left their imprints or all over the island, with impeccable natural beauty and a great variety of landscapes, with modern infrastructure and cosmopolitan atmosphere, Rhodes satisfies even the most demanding visitor!

Cultures and time periods alternate with fascinating diversity as visitos enter the Old Town of Rhodes through the Gate of Freedom. Medieval fortress-like buildings, narrow alleys, minarets, old houses with their balconies, decorative, drinking or ablution fountains, tranquil or busy squares with shady trees, all contribute to creating an atmosphere of the past. The atmospheric old town of Rhodes is a maze of cobbled streets spiriting you back to the days of the Byzantine Empire and beyond. Rarely does one have the chance to stroll into twenty-four centuries of history and countless previous centuries of human presence, all within medieval walls, which surround 58.37 hectares of land.
Even more rarely is one able to spend time in such a fabulous place, where, today, 2.500 inhabitants still share an amazing palette of multicultural influences. Such a place is the Medieval Town of Rhodes, a functional part of the modern city of Rhodes, which was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1988.

Outside the walls of the Old Town lies the “new” city, with its magnificent Venetian, neoclassic and modern buildings. A stroll around Mandráki, the small marina with the Rhodian deer statues at its entrance and the surrounding windmills, is an experience not to be missed. The multicultural character of Rhodes is also evident in this part of the city, since next to the Prefecture stands the Murat Reis Mosque with its elegant minaret.

Further south is the picture-perfect town of Lindos, a weave-world of sugar cube houses spilling down to a turquoise bay. The traditional village, with its whitewashed houses, the mansions of the ship masters, its Byzantine churches and cobblestone streets, lie at the foot of the Acropolis. Following the path through the village or hiring a donkey from the square, one may ascend all the way up the ancient Acropolis.

A tempting stop is Kallithéa, a cosmopolitan holiday resort bustling with hotels lining Faliráki beach. Some of the beautiful beaches where visitors can bask are the picturesque small bay at Ladikó, where the film “The Guns of Navarone” was shot, and the scenic “Anthony Quinn” Bay. Ialissós is a popular cosmopolitan resort; its beach is a favorite destination for windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing enthusiasts.
