Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese and an ideal destination for everyone. You can explore superb beaches, fascinating history, culinary delights, cosmopolitan nightlife and many more.
The atmospheric Old Town of Rhodes is a maze of cobbled streets that will spirit you back to the days of the Byzantine Empire and beyond.
The medieval old city is clearly the island’s must-see attraction; an UNESCO World Heritage site which is the largest and best preserved fortified city in Europe.
Do not forget to see the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes, the street of Knights and the Clock Tower.
If you love nature and photography, just 15 kilometres southwest of the city center you will find a place of incomparable natural beauty, surrounded by hills, with countless trees and streamlets. From June to September, the Butterfly Valley is full of colourful butterflies that select this location to leave their eggs and reproduce.
Rhodes is also very popular with windsurfers, as the breeze on the west side of the island is constant, making it ideal for the sport.
In southern Rhodes you will find sun drenched bays and beaches popular with kite surfers and windsurfers that are generally a bit more laid back and un-touristed.
Do not forget that Rhodes is in the top 10 diving destinations in the Mediterranean.
If you visit this island with kids, a visit to the Aquarium, one of the most important marine research centres in Greece, is a must!
