There is so much to see and experience in Rhodes, there are so many choices for visitors, that they could never lose interest. With 2400 years of history & culture that left their imprints or all over the island, with impeccable natural beauty and a great variety of landscapes, with modern infrastructure and cosmopolitan atmosphere, Rhodes satisfies even the most demanding visitor!

Medieval City of Rhodes and the Palace of Grand Masters within it. (World Heritage city). Simply fascinating, the old town carries twenty four centuries of history and is the largest living medieval town in Europe. Over 5000 habitants live and work in the same buildings in which the Knights of St. John lived six centuries ago.

Acropolis of Rhodes (Temple of Apollo) the panoramic view of the city of Rhodes and the Aegean Sea is simply breathtaking. Unbeatable for a romantic evening stroll, the sunset at Acropolis is probably as good as it gets. The view extends over the sea across to the Turkish coast. The Green and beautifully laid out archaeological park contains the Hellenistic stadium, built in the 3rd century BC, where the Athletic events of the Aleia Games took place.

The lovely village of Lindos is one of the most attractive and beautiful villages of Rhodes, and is located south of the capital, on the eastern coast of the island, at a distance of 50 km from the city of Rhodes. Beautiful scenery, a lively traditional village, colours and atmosphere of another era and traditional white houses in absolute semmetry attract thousands of visitors each year. The paths of the village are filled with fine restaurants, bars and interesting gift shops.

Overlooking Lindos bay and the Aegean Sea stands the famous Acropolis of Lindos and the remains of Lyndia Athenas’ temple.

Arguably the most attractive natural destination on the island, home to the Panaxia butterfly (Quadripunctaria Poda), the Valley of the Butterflies (Petaloudes) lies 20 km South of Diagoras Airport, close to the village of Thelogos (Tholos). From late July to early September, thousands of butterflies overwhelm the valley in order to reproduce. Despite the fact that the number of butterflies declines as the years go by (due to a number of reasons including tourist disturbance) the valley of the butterflies remains a remarkable site one should not miss when visiting the island of Rhodes.

7 Springs ‘’Epta piges’’ (seven springs) lies on the way to Archipolis Village. It is a valley flowing with clear springs and covered with enormous plane and pine trees. One of the most charming destinations on Rhodes, Seven Springs offers a cool, peaceful landscape, even in the heat of high summer, swamped in greenery. Waters come out from the springs all year around to form a small lake accessible through a narrow tunnel of 186 cm. Definitely recommended if visiting Rhodes during a heat wave.

A paradise of meandering streams and paths amidst oleander bushes, cypress, maple and pine trees.
Rodini Park is reputed to be the site of the famed School of Rhetoric where famous Greeks and Romans, including Julius Caesar, Cato the Younger, Cicero, Pompey, Brutus, Cassius and Mark Anthony studied. Also in the park is a 3rd-century BC necropolis (cemetery) with tombs carved into the rock in a Doric-style and the Tomb of Ptolemeus.

Rodini Park was probably the first landscaped park in the world. It was still popular with the Romans some years later and they left a bit of an aqueduct here. The park lies in a green and shady bed of a stream. Here is an ideal environment for the peacocks which live and breed freely in the park.

Kalithea Spings located only 800 m from the KALITHEA HORIZON ROYAL Hotel. Recently restructured to resemble what it originally looked like when its waters were thought to carry therapeutical properties, this picturesque anchorage surrounded by pine trees, provides both an archaeological site of remarkable interest as well as magnificent scenery ideal for swimming and relaxing. A popular cafeteria with refreshments and light snacks operates all day, while there is also a diving school on site for those interested in exploring its fascinating sea world.

Filerimos is a hill 15 km away from Rhodes town. The upper part of Filerimos is a large plateau and most of the buildings are found on the eastern side. They include the foundations of a temple, an Early Christian basilica and a Byzantine church which was destroyed during Turkish occupation and rebuilt by the Italians. A cobbled walkway leads you through the tree lined avenue to a large Cross where overwhelming panoramic views stretch out around your feet.

Prasonisi comes into sight: waves to the right, calm sea and shelter from the wind to the left - and surfers everywhere! It is one of the most impressive beaches on the island. Two sandy coves ending in an island that you can reach on foot or by swimming, depending on the weather and the level of the water. This is a paradise for surfers, especially in July and August.

Faliraki area is a Tourist Resort, world famous for the nightlife and its beaches. It has a very large coast / beach of about 5 km in length. The beach is Sandy, and in most places it has shallow waters, which make it ideal for kids. The beach is organised at most parts, with umbrellas, showers, changing rooms, watersports and canteens. The waters in the less crowded places are crystal clear and very clean, in the more crowded areas not so clear, nevertheless it usually has the most blueflag awards from the beaches of Rhodes Island.
