Rhodes is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece and with over 300 sunny days a year, the island of Rhodes holds the European sunshine record. That is why it is also called “the island of the sun”.
The impeccable natural beauty and great variety of landscapes full of impressive contrasts with long, picturesque, sandy beaches and emerald waters, the extraordinary culture, the modern infrastructure and the cosmopolitan atmosphere, countless opportunities for active programs and the great local cuisine will impress even the most demanding visitor.
One of the best preserved medieval settlements in the world, the Old Town of Rhodes, is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, especially because it is still inhabited. The whole old town is still surrounded by the city walls built by the Johanniter for protection against the Turks. At the end of one of the most beautiful medieval streets in the world, the Street of the Knights, restored just as it was in the Middle Ages, you will see the magnificent Grand Master’s Palace with its enormous towers.
2400 years of history and culture left their mark on the whole island and the culinary pleasures.
Take a trip back to the time of the knights and visit the Grand Master’s Palace or stroll through the cobblestoned streets of the medieval Old Town. Experience a journey that bridges the past with the present and the modern with the traditional. Discover the island`s unique nature reserve of the Butterfly Valley, enjoy the beauties of nature and examine the life cycle of butterflies. Visit the ancient city of Kameiros and the famous captain`s houses in the traditional village of Lindos, the “Pearl of the island”.
