Cosmopolitan & traditional, timeless & modern, simple & spectacular, Rhodes is a stunning destination all year round.

The atmospheric Old Town is a maze of cobbled streets that will spirit you back to the days of the Byzantine Empire, while the ancient Acropolis of Lindos is one of the most popular shrines of antiquity.

 

Whether you’re looking for some laid-back time or buzzing nightlife, Rhodes definitely has something for you. Visit one of the largest medieval towns in Europe and prepare to get utterly mesmerized by its beauty.
