Your Rhodes Town break
Approximately four hours flight time from the UK, Rhodes Town can be found at the northern tip of the Greek holiday island of Rhodes. It is the principal city of the island and has the largest population of any other area in Rhodes. Rhodes is part of the Dodecanese group of islands located in the Southeast of the Aegean. The climate is hot in summer and mild in winter. It is the perfect summer holiday destination as it offers something for everyone. There is plenty of sun and sandy beaches, interesting historical sites and buildings and excellent shopping facilities. There is nothing not to love about your holiday in Rhodes' capital.
What to do
Down on the harbour you will discover where one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World once stood. The Colossus of Rhodes was a large imposing bronze statue that straddled the harbour welcoming visitors and fishermen home. The exact spot where he stood is disputed but is thought to be marked by two deer statues now found at the entrance to the harbour.
Rhodes’ Old Town should top everyone’s list of must see activities. Here you can see many old buildings and feel the history of the area. There is also an abundance of tavernas and cafes selling the freshest food. You can people watch while you enjoy your meal and drinks. While in the Old Town you can visit the Palace of Grand Master of Knights. It is another good way to pass a few hours. The museum is filled with artefacts from the Knights of St John.
Rhodes is an amazing island so while on holiday in Rhodes Town take an excursion to see other parts of the island. A trip to Lindos in the south is an absolutely beautiful place to visit. It is very busy in summer but the bay has a lovely beach and you can walk up the acropolis (or take a donkey if you prefer) and be amazed at the view from the top.
