To get a feel for the rich history of Rhodes Town, you’ll need to head to the historic heart of it. The UNESCO-listed medieval old town is filled with cobbled streets that criss-cross and open out into shady, café-lined squares where you can sip a cup of coffee. When you’re ready to take a break, Elli Beach is well placed for a spot of relaxation; it’s centrally located, so you’ll have no trouble finding it. When the sun goes down, it’s up to you whether you take it slow at a local taverna or head to a late-night club.

Holidays to Rhodes Town aren’t complete without a visit to the beach. You can take your trip at a slow pace down on Elli Beach, which you’ll find close to the town centre with the skyline rising up behind it. This half-kilometre stretch of sand and shingle is a great place to soak up the summer sunshine and take a dip in the crystal-clear water. And there are plenty of loungers and umbrellas to go around. If you want to try your hand at water sports, you’re in luck; take your pick from water-skiing, banana boat rides, and diving. Head over to the harbour if you fancy a boat trip down the coast to Lindos.

Rhodes Town’s UNESCO-listed old town is a big draw for holidaymakers. Make your way through the beautifully preserved streets and you’ll feel like you’re back in medieval times. One of the biggest of its kind in Europe, you’ll discover a fascinating maze of medieval fortifications, more than 200 unnamed alleyways, and a wealth of Byzantine architecture. History buffs should make a beeline for Museum Square and visit the Archaeological Museum; it’s most famous for Aphrodite of Rhodes, a marble statue dating back to the 1st century BC.

The old town is the best place in Rhodes Town to sample local cuisine and nightlife, it’s bursting with quaint little tavernas and Greek restaurants, plus buzzing cafés and bars. Over in the new town, there’s a thriving nightlife scene, complete with dance clubs and chic bars on Miltiadou Street, and you’ll even find a swanky casino. You’ll find plenty of places to shop both here and back in the old town, whether you want to hunt down handmade treasures or pick up designer labels at upmarket boutiques, you’ll be well catered for here.
