Great Things to Do

Steeped in history, Rhodes Town will allow you to take a step back in time, before being flung back to 21st century at your next turn.

Soak up the Sights

The city’s medieval Old Town is the oldest inhabited medieval town in Europe, and passing through the gates will mean immersing yourself in its history straight away. However, you can delve a little deeper by ticking off the prominent sights, including the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights, and the Temple of Venus.

Meander the Museums and Galleries

In Simi Square, you will find the Municipal Gallery of Rhodes, which holds a wealth of work by notable Greek artists. The gallery also has a second venue across the road from the Mosque of Suleiman, which has a range of antiquities and old maps on display. The interesting Archaeological Museum is also well worth a visit.

Experience a Hammam

Whilst Rhodes is a Greek island, it’s closer to Turkey, and if you want to experience a genuine Turkish massage and Hammam, without stepping foot in the country, there is a Turkish Baths on Platia Arionos where you can do just that. Days alternate between men and women, so make sure you know what day is right for you!

Sample a Traditional Greek Menu

There are plenty of tavernas in the Old Town, and outside of its walls, where you can sit down and enjoy a traditional Greek meze. From stuffed aubergine to souvlaki, Greek food is some of the tastiest in Europe. Try Nireas on Sofokleous or Kerasma on Leontos for Greek ingredients served in a contemporary way.

Getting Around

Taxis are available throughout Rhodes Town and, in comparison to other European resorts, are pretty cheap to use. Public buses, and also private tours aimed at holidaymakers, operate in the area, too. Car, moped and bike rental are available in Rhodes Town, but confidence is a must on the winding roads. Boat trips from Mandraki Harbour are extremely common, and can take you around the island and beyond.

By Bus

The bus network that services Rhodes Town and the rest of the island is super, with many private bus tours setting off here. Travel is cheap, and tickets can be bought from the stations or on board.

By Car

Hiring a car is a great way to get out and see the rest of the island, and is available from the airport and Rhodes Town. Roads are generally in excellent condition. Driving is on the right hand side.
