Once through the city walls, the streets are narrow and full of interesting architecture, too much for a single review.

What a great place to wonder around, the fortress walls are amazing all in tact including the round towers. Lots of shops, restaurants so much to see. Allow yourself a good deal of time to check out all there is learn the history and absorb the atmosphere of this ancient place.

Love the history. Lots of shops and friendly people. Enjoyed the variety of shops. Lots of narrow streets to explore. Bring a map though as it's easy to get lost. And if you are looking for good jewelry at a very fair price, see Christos at Vergina, he is the friendliest and has lots of information to share if you... More

I stayed three nights in Rhodes and it was one of my best travel choice. The Medieval City is all surrounded by fortified walls, and some restaurants, cafes, stores, houses, hotels are settled within or under the walls.You might spend a whole day by taking photographs. You can go to new town walking about 15 mins from medieval city, 20... More

It does take time to experience all parameters of old town so I would recommend spending a whole day in old town as theres alot... More

I spent two long afternoons just walking around. Now, that for me takes a lot of convincing! It is really a beautiful thing to do, the town is very lively and beautiful, even the less frequented parts to the south! If you are in Rhodes, that is where you should go first. Also, most landmarks are in here or close... More

Our visit to the medieval city was a haunting and mysterious experience. It seemed that air wafted through the streets, which summoned the medieval city back to life through the centuries. As we walked around the surprisingly lively town, we could almost hear the hoof beats of the horses and the whispering voices of history. This visit is an absolute... More

There are some charming aspects....if you can avoid the crowds and the miles of tourist shops that seem to occupy every inch of the old town,once you enter the walls. Early in the morning before the mobs descend,or early evening,it's pleasant.You can sit at a taverna and enjoy a coffee....come 10.00 it looks like the re-make of 'Ben Hur'.....thousands of... More
