Rhodes

Rhodes is the largest and most popular island of Dodecanese.With 300 days of sunshine per year, Rhodes island is mostly famous for the romantic Old Town and the amazing beach resorts.

With miles of beaches, a forested, mountainous interior, Crusader castles, frescoed churches, one of the finest medieval towns in the Mediterranean and eight sunny months a year, Rhodes can’t help but be a winner for holidaymakers. In a good year, nearly two million visitors pile in to stay, not counting short stopovers by numerous cruise patrons.

The walled old town of Rhodes, a successive effort of the Knights Hospitaller of St John and the Ottomans, has justly been accorded Unesco World Heritage status, and rarely fails to impress with its sandstone architecture, flying buttresses over cobbled streets and a skyline exotically stooked with minarets and palm trees.
