Rhodes Town Vacations

Beautiful rock-rose wildflowers adorn Rhodes, one of the largest Greek Islands and the most important of the Dodecanese. Rhodes Town is the main town on the island and offers the best restaurants and hotels, but it’s the beaches (stick to the eastern side of the island for calm waters and sandy shores) and nightlife that most tourists come to ...

Well preserved medieval town with extensive fortifications. Not to be missed

Spent a week in Rhodes Town in September 2012 and loved it. The town features a few beautiful beaches, a medieval walled city with ancient ruins, and a few good streets of bars with a bit of night life. And stray cats and dogs aplenty! Go to Mandraki Harbour and book a day-cruise to Lindos, which is well worth the 2.5hr boat ride. The bay is sheltered, so that means the its clear blue water is still and perfect for swimming. Walk up the acropolis for beautiful views of St Paul's Bay. The only downside to the whole stay was the wind, it was relentless. And we didn't find any nice wine, although there were plenty of other drinks to choose from. Rhodes Town is a gem!

This incredible place has to be on everybody's list. Not only cat lovers. Spend an evening here, lose yourself in the narrow streets, discover a hidden oasis, wine and dine, relax; you may never want to leave. September is best.

Rhodes was my favorite stop when I went to Greece last year. The town is beautiful, there are great beaches, nice shopping, and lots of historical sites to visit.

Rhodes doesn't seem to have changed much in over what seems like a thousand years. In this most eastern of the Greek Islands, the middle ages seem like they were just yesterday (or ongoing). Beautiful stone architecture covers this absolutely amazing time capsule of a city. Of particular popularity here is the Citadel of Rhodes, which has been named a UNESCO world heritage site. Additionally, the historic Colossus of Rhodes overshadowed the Rhodes Harbor for centuries before being destroyed by invading Arab forces during the seventh century. Still, loosing this wonder of the world doesn't decimate Rodes' long list of attractions. This beautiful city, within sight of Turkey, has been churning out amazing architecture and art since around 400 BC, making it one of the, if not the, most historic of Greece's many islands.
