Explore Rhodes Old Town

The island’s capital, Rhodes Town, is divided into two rather different sides. On the one side you have a lively and popular holiday resort, brimming with bars, restaurants and a fun-filled, 400 metre shingle beach. Whereas on the other, you have a magnificent and empowering UNESCO World Heritage Site in the shape of the city’s old town district.

Take yourself on an historical journey back through time as you roam the streets of the well-preserved fortified city. Step inside the encompassing medieval walls that stretch four kilometres and follow in the footsteps of the Knights of St. John who roamed these streets after they completed the construction back in the Middle Ages.

You’ll find copious amounts of traditional Greek tavernas and inns within the walls – perfect for watching the world go by. But there’s far too much to see to sit around for too long. So finish your mouth-watering moussaka, get out and explore. Amble through the many arched passageways and be sure to visit the famous Street of the Knights – a true reflection of the island’s gothic period. Then make your visit complete by finishing off at the spectacular Palace of the Grand Masters. An absolute must when in Rhodes.
