Rarely does one have the chance to stroll into twenty-four centuries of history, 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. A walk along the old city walls is an excellent way to appreciate this tremendous achievement in fortification and enjoy a superb overview of the old town.
Upon reaching Lindos, one may admire the panorama of the village from afar, but the view is equally captivating from the sea, reserved to those visiting Lindos on a day cruise setting out from Mandraki harbour of Rhodes. The traditional village, with its whitewashed houses, the mansions of the shipmasters, 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. The Acropolis of Lindos rises imposingly on a 116-meter cliff, surrounded by powerful walls, like a podium overlooking the mesmerizing beautiful sea.
What characterizes the magnificent beaches of Rhodes is their unique diversity that satisfies
even the most demanding visitor: pebbled beaches extending along many kilometers, small bays and
coves and endless beaches of golden sand.
It is significant that more than 35 beaches in Rhodes are annually awarded the “Blue Flags of Europe”, for their safety and organization. Whatever your preferences and desires, cosmopolitan atmosphere, fun for the whole family, action and sports, or tranquility and returning to nature, it is for sure that in Rhodes you can find the ideal beach to adore.
In Rhodes the nature lover has the opportunity to wander around the countless paths that bring
