This capital of Rhodes has lots to offer. It has a walled area of cobbled streets where there are many shops ,cafes and interesting places to visit. There is Mandraki harbor where you can fish or watch the boats. Here you see the remains of the Colossus of Rhodes. Well that’s the legend .
There are a couple of good town beaches. We found our Rhodes holidays at Greecevillasrentals. We also found a good maritime museum. Rhodes town has a good cosmopolitan feel. It has everything you may need and more. Sit near the market outside one of the many cafes and watch the world go racing by.
From Rhodes town we took a ferry to the nearby Greek Island of Symi .This was just a day trip for us . This was a lovely , quiet and unspoilt island and would be worth visiting for longer .You can take the ferry to Marmaris in Turkey if you fancy a totally different day out .
On the Eastern side of the island there is the pretty town of Lindos. Here houses resembling large sugar cubes are dotted around a hill . At the top of this is an Acropolis . You can walk up to it or take a donkey . Lindos has many tourist shops and a good beach . It is very scenic . There is a quieter beach a short walk from the main area in a secluded bay .
We visited Lindos on local bus . We needed two buses to get there but had a glorious day and easy journey . The only down side was this was the first place we encountered a traditional Greek toilet . All Greek toilets need you to put the paper in a bin and not down the bowl . However a traditional toilet is two large places to put your feet and a hole in the ground . Sorry for the detail but it is worth knowing . You may not encounter such a wondrous thing but if you do you have been warned .
This resort has a massive beach near but has seen a fair amount of trouble . It was plagued with rowdy visitors but has tried to clean up it’s act lately .
There are far too many attractions and places to list . If you are considering visiting check out a web site or guide book for full details . If you pick the most suitable place and time of year for yourselves I am sure you will have a great holiday . Whether you want to just laze around and chill or explore there is something for everyone .
