This "Old Town" was one of our favorite places in Rhodes. Lots to see and do here. The shop owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. Most would ask where we were from and usually a nice conversation would continue from there. The village had homes, hotels, restaurants, bakery's (Poypnapiko Bakery, open 24 hours and very good!) with wood... More

Definitely worth a look! Save some time to walk through the time, but go early before the crowds take over.

I love the old city, day or night there's always something new to find, and another alleyway to get lost in. I love the crusader history, and the Moorish influences. I love the shops selling all sorts of bric-a-brac that you didn't know you needed, the cafes and the bars - in short, there's something for everyone! The cruise ships... More

An absolute must when on Rhodes. Something for everyone. Bars, restaurants and all manner of shops. History and architecture, eg. The Palace of The Nights of St. John

Overall, the old city is a nice place to visit. One thing that you have to avoid is to succumb to solicitations of owners / waiters of side-street and plazas restaurants. Many times these are just regular tourist traps where food is mediocre, service is given with too much familiarity and bills are designed to check your vigilance, memory and... More

A lot of very good shops which sell with the best prices in Greece and full of gerat souvenirs starting from one Euro.... More

I liked to see the way it was built, otherwise it's like a major shopping centre. Great souvenirs, beautiful jewellery.

Old Town in Rhodes is a truly remarkable medieval remnant, still almost complete. Too small in many parts for cars to make their way through the tiny lanes, it is absolutely built to a human scale. The ramparts enclose a living town, full of homes, tavernas, businesses, gardens, and hundreds of well behaved cats. The pebbly streets ( bring thick-soled... More

We went for a day trip in the middle of August and it was very hot therefore it was not the most pleasant visit as we walked around the medieval city not to miss anything, we went in and out of narrow cobbled side streets, saw some amazing old buildings.
