If you’ve got a Greek island holiday in mind, chances are you’re thinking about beaches, delicious cuisine and fascinating culture marked by ancient ruins. The island of Rhodes can deliver in all these areas and much more, making it a very popular island for visitors to Greece. It’s a great balance of everything Greek, so make sure to book your tickets to Rhodes and check these all out:
Rhodes Town is filled with impressive structures that take you back to ancient times. Start your tour of the city from the top of the city walls, where you can get views of the city below and the nearby harbor. The streets of the cute town are lined with shops, cafes and inns made of stone from the 14th century. It’s a great interesting mix of old and new.
Lindos is another town that you’ll want to visit on your trip to Rhodes. It might seem over-commercialized at first glance, but you’re not coming here for the overpriced food or souvenirs- you come here for the Acropolis of Lindos. The impressive ruins will leave you spellbound as you can even climb to the top and get views of the island.
This natural wonder is quite different from the ruins and other cultural attractions you’ll see in Greece, and it’s a great place to recharge your energy. During June, July and August this lush jungle area is filled with Jersey Tiger moths- so not actually butterflies, but stunning all the same.
This resort town is more relaxing than Rhodes Town, a great place to get away from it all and rejuvenate. It’s got a tranquil resort atmosphere during the day with plenty of beaches to enjoy, but yet there is still a fun nightlife scene for the nighttime. There’s an awesome water park which a great place to come if you’re traveling with kids.
This ancient city isn’t super well-known so it’s a great place to visit if you want to get off the beaten tourist track. The ruins here are still being excavated, so you can actually still see the archaeologists at work which is interesting. Climb to the top and enjoy stunning views of the surrounding ruins and island.Add a comment Add a comment
