    We will start our tour with a drive around the walls of the Old Town of Rhodes – the biggest inhabited medieval town in Europe. It was built in 1300s from the knights of the order of St. John. The Medieval Town of Rhodes is inscribed in the World Heritage Sites List of UNESCO. This list recognizes the exceptional value of a cultural site so that it may be protected for the benefit of all Humanity.

  • Route 2 Mandraki Harbor - Colossos Area and Annunciation Church

    After the Old town, we will continue towards the new part of the town and visit the Mandraki port where once stood the famous Colossus of Rhodes – one of the seven wonders of the Ancient world. The Colossus was a big statue of the god of the sun – Helios and it stood for 56 years when an earthquake destroyed it. We will stop for pictures of the area and you can also enter and see the Church of the Annunciation which is the biggest Orthodox church in the town with very beautiful handmade paintings on the walls and impressive chandeliers.

  • Route 4 Acropolis of Rhodes

    The Acropolis of Rhodes, an active archaeological site, is also one of the most accessible ancient sites on the island. The undisputed star of the acropolis is the grand Temple of Apollo, exquisitely restored and partially reconstructed as part of Monte Smith Park, which crowns the hill. Other notable ruins include the remnants of Roman odeon, the Temple of Athena Polias and Zeus Polieus, and traces of a 3rd-century BC stadium.

  • Route 5 Lindos

    Lindos is probably the most popular resort on the island of Rhodes, The village, once the capital of the island, today is an attractive holiday resort evolving around the picturesque, whitewashed, preserved medieval village, topped with a fortified ancient Acropolis, reached through a series of steps, which can be ascended on donkeys.

  • Route 6 Pottery factory - upon request

    On our way to Lindos, we can also include a stop to a pottery factory where you will be able to see how beautiful ceramics are made. Rhodes has a long history of pottery going back many centuries at least to the time of the ancient cities. Replicas of designs produced in those times are still been manufactured today together with new modern designs in a younger generation. Vivid colors, especially blue, feature strongly as do certain motifs which are uniquely Rodian, the pomegranate flower and the stylized deer.

  • Route 7 Panoramic View of Lindos and St. Paul's Bay

  • Route 8 Acropolis of Lindos

    From the outside, the Acropolis does not betray its Hellenistic origins because the original complex was surrounded by a strong fortification in the Middle Ages by the Knights of St John, but inside are the Doric Stoa, propylaean ruins, the sanctuary of Athena and the Byzantine church of St John. The ruins of an ancient theatre have been discovered on the slope below the Acropolis.
